Since then, I've worked as a freelance content writer, erotica author, proofreader, professional beta reader, and content editor. I'm now working hard on my dream writing career: romantic suspense author. When I'm not writing, I can be found drinking too much coffee, obsessing over yarn, and planning world domination with my husband, jezbraithwaite.blog, and our squirrel army.​

      It really does. My inner chimp’s so happy she’s marching around my head clanging massive cymbals 😀

  1. Photos by Jez – I'm a Royal Navy Veteran from Scotland and love to get out and about with my wife, susantbraithwaite.com, on our Kalkhoff e-bikes. My faithful camera, Snappy, and the ever-present Lensy (lensball) are always along for the ride to capture the beauty of Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿. Join me as I share photos from our travels, how Lensy views the world & pretty much anything shiny ✨

      Man, Ah hope so 😅

  2. Index cards? Are you making a speech?? Sorry, Susan, I’m only kidding 😉
    I’m so impressed by your writing process. If I had your self-discipline I would keep falling down plot holes and disappearing into dead-ends! (Although this weekend I’m fighting back to the surface and putting on a spurt in my 32nd chapter.)
    But back to you. If Amy and Kelvin’s exploits are anything to go by, you have best-seller material at your finger tips 🙂

      Wow, thank you so much, Chris! 😍
      I actually laughed when I read about my “self-discipline”–I’ve been in awe of your work rate, and more than a wee bit jealous.
      As for the index cards, I’m still a screenwriter at heart and it’s the done thing 😄
      This whole pre-editing thing encourages you to outline every possible version you come up with so that you make the best story decisions before writing 80K. It’s a lot of work–a few hundred to a few thousand words (👈 me) each version–but it makes the writing faster.
      How’s chapter 32 going?

      • Pre-editing makes perfect sense. I suppose I just go the long way around. I’m managing to complete a chapter each week, so to be almost half way through no 32 is a plus on a Tuesday (although it depends what you count as the start of the week!!).

        Wow! I’m so impressed with your output and commitment. My week starts Sat/Sun, so you’re still ahead of the game by my reckoning. 🎉
