Susanne Lakin grew up collating television scripts for her mother, a screenwriter, story editor, and producer for television. As an adult, Susanne assisted in developing series for television, and while raising two daughters and running a bed and breakfast inn in northern California, wrote her first three novels and a cookbook. She currently works as a freelance copy editor and writing mentor, specializing in helping authors prepare their books for publication. She is a member of The Christian PEN (Proofreaders and Editors Network), CEN (Christian Editor Network), And ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers). She is currently working on her ninth novel: Conundrum, her fourth psychological suspense novel. She has also written three books in her Sacred Sites fantasy series and the first book in a Young Adult sci-fi adventure series: Time Sniffers. If she didn't spend all her time writing and copyediting, she would be sixty feet underwater, taking photographs, or backpacking in the Trinty Alps with her dog, Sweetie. She confesses to a serious chocolate addiction, which she shares with her husband of twenty-six years, Lee Miller. Together they also share a deep love for God and gratitude for their savior, Jesus Christ.
