by Suzanne Johnson Writing is an odd occupation in my family of salt-of-the-earth Southerners. My people work hard for an honest wage, watch Southeastern Conference football on Saturdays in the fall, and take casseroles to church fellowships. My people don’t do weird. Then there’s me. I spend my days writing and editing at a university―a… Read More
The Unofficial Bio:
I am ridiculously nearsighted, have a weakness for reality
shows (anyone for a marathon of “Ice Road
Truckers?”) and am somewhat obsessive-compulsive.
Well, okay, my critique partner calls me “Rain
Man.” I like to color-code anything, am obsessed with
the search for the perfect daily planner, and love listening
to Canadian French folk music.

Saying goodbye to fictional friends is a special kind of sweet pain. With this finial book in my Hellsbane series, HELLSBANE HEREAFTER, finally out in the world, it’s time to say goodbye to some very dear friends. Normally when I finish a book I do a little happy dance, maybe have a glass of wine,… Read More
Writing was never a foregone conclusion for Paige Cuccaro.
She once had dreams of being a psychologist, a pediatrician,
a school teacher, a photojournalist, a bartender, and/or an
EMT. And then she met her husband and her world came into
focus. Being wife and mother are her highest priorities and
greatest joy. But escaping to the fanciful, sexy worlds
twirling through her mind is an absolute necessity. Putting
those worlds, and the cornucopia of characters that people
them, on paper is just plain fun.
Paige lives in Ohio, with her husband, three daughters,
three dogs, three cats, a parakeet and a bearded dragon
named Rexy, in an ever shrinking house. When she's not
writing she can be found doing the mom thing with a book in
one hand and a notepad and pen in the other. Ideas come
without warning and the best way to stimulate your
imagination is to enjoy the imagination of someone else.
