5 QUESTIONS FOR AUTHOR SUZANNE CORSO
I did nothing wrong just lived the life that I was handed, and dealt with it in stride and integrity. The entire time I just wanted to get out and make a better life for myself which I finally did and got over the bridge.
2- Do you think you would have been a writer had you not come from such a dysfunctional family?
What a fabulous question. Possibly not. The writing came to me since I had no therapy to get me out of my dysfunction, so the writing became therapeutic for me. The greatest thing I ever mastered. It made me so secure with the woman I became and the little naive girl I left behind.
3- Looking back at your teenage years, how much did you yourself long to cross the Brooklyn Bridge for Manhattan?
One hundred percent of myself wanted to leave. It wasn't Brooklyn. I loved it. It was those few people who were so stifling, I wanted and needed out. I created my character Samantha as an escape.
