Susan Aylworth started her first book when she was nine. "It was called Buff, The Proud Stallion. I wrote eight whole pages." For her fifth grade career day, she stated her ambition to become "a rich and famous author." Decades later, she is pleased to have achieved the 'author' part of that goal. A former university professor, she enjoys researching backgrounds and careers for her novels. "It's one way to live many lives all at once."
Servant to two spoiled cats, she lives in northern California with her husband of 45 years and believes in happily ever after. She loves hanging out with their seven children, the perfect-for-them in-laws they brought into the family, and 24 grandchildren and gathers the mob every two years in a celebration called AylaPalooza! When she can't be with her blood family, she hangs with her fictional characters, the children of her mind. She has 13 books available and a 14th due soon.
