Susan Dennard has come a long way from small-town Georgia. With a masters degree in marine biology, she got to travel the world--six out of seven continents, to be exact (she'll get to Asia one of these days!)--before she settled down as a full-time novelist and writing instructor.
She is the author of the Something Strange and Deadly series (from HarperTeen) as well as the forthcoming Witchlands Series (Tor, 2015). When not writing, she can be found hiking with her dogs, exploring tidal pools, or earning bruises at the dojo.
