Susanne Bacon was born in Stuttgart, Germany, has a double Master's degree in literature and linguistics, and has been working as a journalist for over 20 years. She lives with her husband in the South Puget Sound region in Washington State. Apart from an early German historical novel translated into English, Susanne has created the Wycliff novels, small-town romances loosely interconnected, with a lot of Western Washington flavor and recipes of her own creation. She also writes non-fiction, such as the essays published under the Title "Home from Home". Reviewers have compared her romance writing to Debbie Macomber, Maeve Binchy, and Hallmark movies.
