Suzanna J. Linton

Suzanna J. Linton was born in Charleston, SC but grew up in rural Orangeburg County. At age eight, she tried to read THE SECRET GARDEN by herself. After following her mother around for a day, asking questions about the Yorkshire accent, she gave up, but that didn't deter her in developing a deep appreciation for books and the worlds to which they open.

However, she didn't want to become a writer until after reading McCaffrey's DRAGONFLIGHT. Linton was enthralled by the worldbuilding and unique characters and decided that that was what she wanted to do with her life. She wanted to build worlds.

In 2002, she attended the summer program at the SC Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, where she refined her poetry and wrote her first decent short story. In 2003, Suzanna began attending Francis Marion University, where she graduated with a Bachelor's in English.

Today, she continues to live in South Carolina with her husband and their assorted pets. She published her first novel, CLARA, in 2013.
