About Suzette

At the age of fifteen an upperclassman slipped me my first romance novel. I became immediately engrossed in the romance genre. Years later when I discovered there were romance novels written by African-American women with characters that looked like me, I nearly lost my mind! Searching my local bookstores for my favorite authors became an enjoyable pastime. Today I have an extensive library of romance novels thatโ€™s growing out of control!

My love for the genre and a need to find a place of escape is what encouraged me to write my first novel, A Special Summer, in 2008, under a pen name. After receiving positive feedback from readers eager to know what was going to happen next with the characters, I was inspired to write the sequel, When Love Comes Around, and before I knew it, the Love Conquers All Series was born. From this series Second Chance at Love was nominated for an Emma Award for E-book of the Year.

Currently, Iโ€™m working on creating new stories with fascinating characters that will make readers want to fall in love.

Although reading and writing are near and dear to my heart, being a wife, mother, sister, friend, and nurse practitioner is what makes me the happiest.
