Suzanne Quill, the nom-de-plume for Susan Dudics Dean, has been pursuing a fiction career for over fifteen years. With prior experience writing articles for interior design trade magazines and local newspapers she decided to find a more creative outlet for her vivid imagination.
Inspired by romances from such icons as Amanda Quick, Diana Gabaldon and Mary Balogh, she chose historical romance as her first genre. She is currently writing a sensuous series called The Order of the Crimson Lotus. The full series is offered through Soul Mate Publishing.
A member of Romance Writers of America and the Washington Romance Writers Chapter, Suzanne lives in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia. She is happily married, has a beautiful daughter, and two outside cats. After years of running a successful interior design business that started in Southern California, relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area and finally in the Greater Washington D.C. Area, she has finally retired to pursue her writing career full time.
