Susan T. Woodhouse was born on August 7, 1958 in Suffolk, Virginia, USA. She attended college at Scripps Howards on a writing scholarship and majored in Journalism. She then had a career in Human Resources in the automotive and chemical industries. It was when she was between jobs that she began writing novels. Her first submission to Pocket Books did not sell, but they were interested in seeing more of her work. In 1998, they bought two of her historical romances, published as Liz Carlyle. She enjoys bringing her readers a little bit of the 19th century to enjoy.
Susan lives in beautiful North Carolina with her husband, Edward, and their three cats, Elliot, Pelham and Mary. She often is visited by her two stepchildren.
