Book Spotlight - Susanne Dietze

Journey the Transcontinental Railroad along with nine unlikely couples who encounter all the dangers and disappointments of traveling the rails in the late 1800s. From sight-seeing excursions to transports toward new lives, from orphan trains to circus trains, can romances develop into blazing love in a world of cold, hard steel?

The Honeymoon Express: Can a jilted bride and a mysterious frontiersman thrown together on a trip meant for honeymooners solve a crime--and find love--before the end of the line?

Susanne Dietze began writing love stories in high school, casting her friends in the starring roles. Today, she's the award-winning author of a dozen new and upcoming historical romances who's seen her work on the ECPA and Publisher's Weekly Bestseller Lists for Inspirational Fiction. Married to a pastor and the mom of two, Susanne lives in California and enjoys fancy-schmancy tea parties, the beach, and curling up on the couch with a costume drama and a plate of nachos.  You can visit her online at and subscribe to her newsletters at

I like the premise of that story synopsis shared! I have read short story collections, often from authors on the literary side, as well as short stories in literary collections. I think I'm feeling I need of a dose of those again as I found they really helped my writing. Learning to write short prose is an art for sure.

Thanks for sharing The Rails to Love Collection, Susan! I love novellas and it was a treat to write this one.

Hi Lynn! I agree with you that reading novellas can help me tighten my writing in longer projects.

So glad you could stop by!
