Authorship, Publishing, Books and More

About This Writer’s Life

I’m Susan Palmquist and I created this site for writers, both aspiring and established, fiction and non-fiction.  My goal is for this to become a community where we can encourage and learn from one another so we can become better writers.

My own writing journey started decades ago. I struggled to get published but never gave up until one day I got the publishing contract I’d been dreaming about.

Since then I’ve published 100 plus books under my own name and a pen name. For the last fourteen years, I’ve been teaching workshops for various chapters of the Romance Writers of America and tutoring for an online school.

One thing I love to do is help others realize their dream of seeing their work in print and one of the main reasons for both starting this site and my coaching and mentoring business. More details about mentoring and coaching can be found at my other web site at
