I Write Romantic Fiction For The Fabulously Flawsome
Hi, I'm Susie Sharp, and I write contemporary romance that celebrates real women.
Women who are flawed and yet still brave, resilient, and fabulous.
Women who are moving into the next phase of womanhood and are ready to rediscover themselves.
And women with compelling stories, real-life issues, and a desire to escape it all.
If you enjoy reading about women like these ...
If you embrace novels with passion, emotion, and real-life issues ...
If you believe that love never ages and that women only grow more interesting ...
Then you're in the right place.
So join me in raising a glass to the fabulously flawsome over forties — my books are for you.
Susie Sharp's Secrets
Cwtch up and let me share a few secrets with you — because I'm a Welsh girl at heart. And like many other women over forty, I'm fabulously flawed, and proud of it!
I'm an introvert who prefers cosying up with a sofa supper or a good Milly Johnson rather than putting on my "got it together" face and venturing out. (But shh — don't tell anyone!)
I have concerns that my face (and body) are slipping southwards, then decide I'm far too busy for tricky treatments.
I worry about that extra slice of pizza and my jeans that feel a smidge too tight, but no way am I going up a dress size. I'm not ready to give in.
It's hard getting used to an empty nest, yet I'm keen to explore new adventures.
I bake, I travel, and I'm addicted to buying shoes.
And I write romantic women's fiction that lets women like us know that all of this is normal.
That it's OK to accept ourselves.
As we leave the second phase of womanhood, our voices get stronger. And that's OK too.

Susie Sharp's Romantic Fiction
I'm excited to reveal that my debut novel,Time For Tuscany, will be released later this year.
(Make sure you sign up to my mailing list to be the first to hear any news.)
This romantic fiction novel is set in Tuscany; a landscape I know and love. I lived and breathed this life, and can now share it with you through my characters and their intriguing stories.
If you're fascinated by heroines who need to find themselves, and you love celebrating the tenacity of the female spirit, let me share Sara's story with you.
Time For Tuscany
Sara is a woman consumed by guilt. She's a woman striving to live rather than exist. However, tragedy has left its mark. To survive, Sara knows she must find the strength to rebuild herself; to take control of her life.
But is that possible?
With the bonds of her marriage strained by grief, she arranges a holiday in Tuscany. Trusting that a change of scenery and the beautiful Villa Anna, along with the company of a few friends, will help paper over the cracks in her relationship ...
However, her husband, Marcus, has demons of his own. And forgiveness has never been one of his virtues.
When the guests start to arrive, the tensions rise. And Sara starts to believe she's made a terrible mistake. But she falls in love with Tuscany. And fate decides to smile on her. Offering a reprieve ... and an escape.
Will she take it?
