Susan Dennard, author of the Something Strange and Deadly series isn‘t just another writer. In Fact, there are several interesting facts that you might not know about her. Here’s a list of a couple of them:
Despite being a novelist, Dennard originally intended to be a marine biologist, later after getting her degree, she tried writing full time to see if she could make a career out of it and we’re glad she did!
She has stated before that she didn’t try it earlier because of fear of actually being good at it, and now she’s very proud of her skills and belt!
You can read The Sheridan Institute Files here.
You can check out their co-authored series here.
Yes, that’s a screen shot of one of Susan Dennard’s pinterest boards.
Aren’t they adorable and absoluely geek-tastic?
Then again, who doesn’t?
8. She came up with the idea for Something Strange and Deadly after having a dream of “a girl wanting to save her brother and the only people who could help her were this rag-tag team of losers” while living in Germany.
Her husband, a.k.a. The Frenchman, had been working in Germany at the time.
9. One time, her all time favorite author, Robin Hobb, scolded her on Facebook for wasting time on Tumblr instead of writing and she admitted to “fangirling and then hanging my head with shame” after he did.
She definitely gets scolded by cooler people than the rest of us.
What do you think about all of these? Anything I might’ve left out? Let me know in the comments section below. Happy Susan Saturdays!
