Suzanne was raised in the Midwest and moved to Colorado to attend college at the foot of Pike’s Peak. After graduating from The Colorado College, she moved to Washington, D.C. to work for a U.S. Senator. Law school followed and a stint in the Solicitor’s office of the Department of the Interior where her clients included the National Park Service and the Capitol Police. Lured by the landscapes and legends of the West, Suzanne returned to Colorado with her husband and two children and turned her talents to writing historical fiction. Her Five Star books are eagerly anticipated by fans of westerns, history, and romance alike.
