Suzanne Nelson has published eight children's and young adult novels, has taught at the community college and high school level, and presented a children's novel writing workshop through Ridgefield Continuing Education. She is a shameless fan of "The Sound of Music," Hershey kisses, Charlotte Bronte, and Jane Austen, and can often be caught daydreaming of romping about gothic castles in lovely Victorian gowns.. She was born in New Jersey, grew up in Southern California, attended college in Texas, and spent eight years as a children's book editor in New York City. After decades of searching for her geographic "promise land," Suzanne now lives in Ridgefield with her husband and three children. When she is not busy playing the part of chauffeur, chef not-so-extraordinaire, and "Mommy Craziest," she can be found locked happily away in her office writing.
