AP Author Spotlight: Susan Rush

Susan Rush
Describe yourself in three words:
empathetic, sarcastic, patient
Tell us a little about your latest release:
Just Over the Horizon chronicles the faith journey of a hospice nurse. Of course, the journey's no fun without romance and suspense so that's thrown in for fun.
Short blurb:  While grieving the death of her eccentric nana, Sarah discovers a mysterious, little box. The gift quickly becomes a source of comfort and guidance, but while working as a traveling hospice nurse, her childhood faith is shattered. Will a simple box be enough to restore her faith or will a secret destroy it forever?
What is your earliest memory?
My earliest memory is snuggling up next to Daddy in his worn recliner. It molded perfectly to our bodies- one hand across his belly and the other at my mouth. I was a thumb sucker, and Daddy was one of the few who never minded the obnoxious habit. John Wayne provided the back-ground noise for our night time ritual for years. (Interesting fact: I sucked my thumb until I was in second grade.)
What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?
I know it sounds cliche but birthing three phenomenal children. How can any moment be greater than miraculously bringing new life into this world?
What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?
Waking my mom to tell her that her husband and soul-mate had finished his race well after battling Alzheimer's for many years and was finally free in heaven.There are no words . . .
What have you learned in life so far?
The old cliche holds true. Life is a journey - one filled with unexpected curves, dark tunnels, beautiful mountain views, scary side roads and refreshing beaches. Thankfully, through it all, it is a journey full of promise.
Everyone’s favourite question: if you could invite five people for dinner, who would it be?
Daddy- just to see him one more time, Ruth Bell Graham and Mother Teresa for inspiration, Bryan Regan and Jim Gaffigan, the comedians, to keep us all laughing.
