Award-winning debut author Suzanne Pearson was born and raised in a small Congo village. The daughter of missionaries, she eventually married another missionary kid. Their two daughters followed in their grandparents’ shoes for a time, serving in both China and Bolivia. Battling against the empty-nest syndrome, Suzanne signed up for a writing class and got hooked.
Now living in Dallas with her husband of over 30 years, she is a member of RWA and has served on the board of her local chapter. Her debut novel won first place in the Romantic Suspense category in the Romancing the Lakes contest.
Her experiences in the Congo are looked back at with great anguish and occasional joy so it was a shock to find her first book reflecting some of those experiences.
