Look Who Dropped By Today: Fia Essen

Good morning, Today I’d like to introduce you to one of my fellow writers at Solstice. Take it away, Fia. Hello Friends, Fans and Followers of Susanne!

My name is Fia Essen. I’m an author. (I get a thrill every time I say that!) I’ve written two novels and they’ve both been published by Solstice Publishing this year. I love to write. I get to make up stories on the job. What could be more fun?  But as I’ve discovered since I made the decision that I wanted to become an author, the actual writing is a relatively small part of being an author. Promoting my books and finding readers takes up a lot more time and effort. That’s why I’m so grateful to helpful people like Susanne who are willing to lend me a hand. Today, she has offered to let me tell you guys a little more about my books.

ArielAriel is a half-English, half-American, lifelong expat who was born in Hong Kong and now lives in Singapore. At the age of thirty-four, she is in debt and out of luck. She used to have a great career, a penthouse she shared with her boyfriend of ten years, and a group of fun friends. Now she has a dead-end job, a rented hovel of a home, and a rising stack of unpaid bills to keep her company. In essence, this is a story about finding the courage to pick yourself up when you’ve hit rock-bottom and starting over. Of course, there is also intrigue and romance in the book. Ariel is summoned by the mysterious Muse Agency and she has no idea what they could possibly want with her. She meets a charming Irishman who makes her feel alive again. But can she work up the courage to take another chance on love?

AnnaAnna thought she knew exactly where her life was heading. She was wrong. After ten years of climbing her way up the stressful corporate ladder at Milton International, her dream of one day occupying her boss’ corner office has been ripped from her thanks to a round of downsizing. Her boyfriend of five years has dumped her because he didn’t think she shared his vision of their “ideal future” together. In addition to losing her job and boyfriend, she comes to the conclusion she might be losing her mind too. A sane person wouldn’t follow a perfect stranger they meet on a plane to a tiny village no one has heard of on a Greek island, would they? The stranger in question is an irresistibly handsome Englishman with a sympathetic ear. But that’s no excuse to follow him to the place he calls his home and practically move in with him, is it?

I’d be thrilled if you read the books and find out how things turn out for Ariel and Anna!

Finally retired after more than 30 years as a teacher! Now, I get to spend my time gardening, enjoying my grandchildren, and writing. I finally completed the number one item in my bucket list and Crimson Romance published my first novel, Fire Angel, in April 2013. Since then I have published 24 manuscripts to date and don't plan to quit writing for a long time yet.

  1. Thank you so much for letting me take up space on your blog, Susan. It’s much appreciated!

    I’m currently house-sitting. The house in question is in the middle of nowhere without internet but I stumbled into some wifi and found the post. Thank you!
