ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Susan Aylworth started her first book when she was nine. "It was called Buff, The Proud Stallion. I wrote eight whole pages." For her fifth grade career day, she stated her ambition to become "a rich and famous author." Decades later, she is pleased to have achieved the 'author' part of that goal. A former university professor, she enjoys researching backgrounds and careers for her novels. "It's one way to live many lives all at once."
Servant to a spoiled, arthritic old cat, she lives in northern California with her husband of 49 years and believes in happily ever after. She loves hanging out with their children, the perfect-for-them in-laws they brought into the family, and her perfect grandchildren, and gathers the mob every two years in a celebration called AylaPalooza! When she can't be with her blood family, she hangs with her fictional characters, the children of her mind. She has 18 books available now with two more due out by the end of this year.
"I love travel, great music, and good raspberry jam," she says, "and every author loves good reviews." She points out that 4* and 5* reviews on Goodreads.com and Amazon are highly valued in the publishing industry. "You can do every good book a favor by giving it a strong Goodreads review."
"I always love hearing from readers, especially those who relate to the characters in my stories." Reach her at , post on her wall at: or follow her @SusanAylworth, also on Pinterest and Instagram. "If you enjoy my books, please tell everyone you know: friends, relatives, neighbors, the person who delivers your mail, people you meet in line in the grocery store, everyone!" She welcomes ideas for new books and characters.
