Suzanne Cowles was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and now lives in Florida with her husband and dachshund. She graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design and received a Masters of Fine Art from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Her twenty-year professional career has spanned visual arts, 3D design and graphic arts.
One day her husband dared her to write a sequel screenplay for her favorite movie franchise. With dedication and determination, ALIEN 5: TRANSFECTION was born in a summer. Enjoying the creative process of writing so much, she challenged herself to conceive an original story, producing SHALLOW BASIN, book one of a planned trilogy series.
As a child, she grew up watching Saturday morning monster movies on a black and white television and enjoys the horror genre because it is disturbing and unpleasant. She especially loves the dark prose of the Bronte sisters or the sorrowful tone of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. She is most happy when scared by anything that leaves behind a lingering feeling of terror.
Her work crosses genres and bridges the gap between literary and commercial fiction. She endeavors to create a movie-like experience originating from a conceptualized story, painting a mental picture with words. The words connect thoughts in context as the driving force sustaining momentum for the reader to turn each page. Building suspense, the monster that waits in the crevice between pages reminds us that life is seldom a fairy tale.
If you want stereotypical tired plot lines, then read something else. If you want to be entertained in a new exciting way, then follow her into that dark place in her mind … She dares you.
