Susanne Schmidt grew up in Germany and fell in love with the English language reading Harry Potter and the Earthsea Chronicles. She spent a year in New Zealand during High School and later studied in Spain and the US, eventually earning a B.A. in Journalism from Saint Louis University.
She wrote her first poems in fourth grade, started and failed to complete a Zelda fanfiction novel around the same time and has been hooked on writing ever since. She is currently working on a epic fantasy vampire trilogy and an experimental standalone fantasy.
When she isn't staring down a blank screen, she takes care of two spoiled guinea pigs and watches too much Netflix with her husband.
