Susan was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She is a military brat and has lived in many places. She presently lives in Missouri, but has also been a resident of California, Colorado, Hawaii, Kansas, and Virginia. She has worked in a wide variety of jobs, but now works from home as a freelance graphic designer and writer. She believes life is too short to wake up unhappy every day. She is active on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. She is always looking for new ideas and wants to share her experiences with other people. Susan's literary influences include Robert Heinlein, Nora Roberts, Anne McCaffrey, Diana Gabaldon, Janet Evanovich, Robert B. Parker, James Patterson, Rick Riordan, and oh, so many more. Susan currently lives in Missouri (USA) with her husband, Robert, and their pet -- Blaze the Wonder Dog, a very smart Rat Terrier! When she isn't writing or designing, Susan enjoys knitting and working in her garden.
