‘5 Questions’ with Susan Scott!

April 5, 2012 4 comments

5 Questions

Today I’m thrilled to welcome indie author Susan Scott to the blog as part of the new ‘5 Questions’ with authors series!

If you are an author who would like to participate in the series, fill out the questionnaire here! And if you are a reader who wants to suggest an author for the series, just send me an email!

In Praise of Lilith, Eve & The Serpent in the Garden of Eden & Other Stories

Describe your new book ‘In Praise of Lilith, Eve & The Serpent in the Garden of Eden & Other Stories‘ (Olympia Publishers) in ten words or less

7 essays from universal psychological viewpoint. Blend of sacred with mundane.

Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?

My background is in psychology and in particular depth psychology as in CG Jung. I have lectured on the Lilith myth and have been interviewed on radio. There are 7 essays (including the title); one is on Dreams and the other 5 are personal essays highlighting universal, psychological themes.

Which of your characters is closest to your heart and why?

I suspect Lilith as first wife of Adam (according to the Midrash) is closest to my heart. Much has been written about her and her expulsion from the Garden. Her rage at Adam and G.d for their not accepting her equality with Adam, led to her expulsion but she does arise again, as does anything that is banished, repressed or swept under the carpet. She is alive and well in the lives of contemporary man, women and society, though we are not too receptive to her. She is a wound that needs healing by being brought out into the open, for the health and wholeness of our society.

Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?

I do have a day job but it had no real effect or affect upon my writing really.  I work in my husband’s medical rooms. What is interesting to me, is if an operation needs to be booked for the patient and I explain about the procedure and the anesthetic … many are very fearful of the anesthetic as they state that they will then have ‘no control’. It is not my place to ask them what they are fearful of, when they not in control, but this seems to be a theme amongst many of us – ie the need to be in control. It points to a need for dominance inter alia … love and dominance cannot co-exist. There is of course a healthy need to be in control of much of our lives

Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about

I’d like to write a novel about Lilith and Eve highlighting their complementarity. For women to recognise their dark side and the necessity of acknowledging this means to be whole.

Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!

If you enjoy any books that illustrate a depth in their characters, you would probably like my book.

Thanks again for stopping by, Susan! You can learn more about Susan at her website (Garden of Eden) and Twitter (@susanscottsa). To get your copy of In Praise Of Lilith, Eve And The Serpent In The Garden Of Eden And Other Stories, click here!
