About meTo recklessly go where no woman has gone before…

Susan McDonough enjoys throwing her intrepid heroines into unlikely situations: a Victorian woman on a spaceship, a medieval woman kidnapped by a dragon, a woman from a future matriarchy in a forced marriage to a chauvinist playboy, a typical wife and mother as the savior of an alien world.

Snail’s Pace placed second in a contest by Publishing Online and was published by them in January, 2000. (They subsequently went out-of-business – surely unrelated events.) Arabella’s Gift won the Los Angeles Romance Writers’ Best Bet for Bestseller, and was to be published by Wordbeams, but they went out of business…oh dear.

Eliza’s Revenge (now titled Winga’s Dilemma) placed first in the Pacific Northwest Writers’ Association genre novel contest. (PNWA is still active.) Susan is now working on Elizabeth’s Journey, as well as a collection of short stories called Ferry Findings, and a children’s fantasy tentatively titled Cat’s Magic.

Susan has been writing since grade school. She has tried her hand at children’s stories, short stories, romances, historicals, essays, fantasies, mysteries, science fiction, numerous letters to the editor and a blog called Renaissance Woman (

Susan l has been a burger tosser, customer service rep, ad taker, curriculum developer, parent, teacher, reader and gardener. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with two cats, two kids and one husband. All five help with the storytelling, three help with the housecleaning, and two are in charge of destroying horrible first drafts.
