She began writing and publishing on Amazon in August of 2012 as a way to help pay off medical bills that were piling up. She’s written how-to computer books, contemporary fiction, a children’s book about her dog, and even a couple of of zombie books, but her real passion is historical western romance and time travel.

Susan lives in Tomball, Texas, a Houston suburb, with her husband of fifty-four years, her psychotic dog, Charlie, and her arrogant cat, Lissie.

She has also traveled to forty-seven US states, as well as outside the Continental US to Hawaii; Brussels, Italy—Venice, Florence, Rome, Pompeii, Japan, the Philipines, Guam, and Hong Kong.
