My books

Historical fiction is my passion. I read it, I write it. I love doing the research, and I love the writing and the editing. I also read many other genres, though, and have dabbled in several. To date, all my books have been historical in nature.

Young Adult Historical Fiction



The Academie is the story of three important young girls in Napoleon’s France, who went to boarding school together: Hortense de Beauharnais (daughter of the famous Josephine), Caroline Bonaparte (Napoleon’s youngest sister), and Eliza Monroe (daughter of the future President James Monroe).

In the Shadow of the Lamp (January, 2011) is the story of a young parlormaid who stows away to go with Florence Nightingale and her nurses to the Crimea.

Published in March, 2010, Anastasia’s Secret follows the youngest grand duchess through life before and during World War I and the Russian Revolution, when she falls in love with a young guard who is one of their captors.

A young violinist must solve the mystery of her father’s death, in Haydn’s Vienna—complete with gypsies, emperors and hot Hungarian nobles.

    I just love your covers. I want to read them all and hopefully my daughter will too.

  2. Susanne,
    I just recently finished your latest book, “The Academie,” and I absolutely loved it. I hope you continue to write more young adult books! 🙂
