About Susan McDonough-Wachtman

To recklessly go where no woman has gone before…

Susan McDonough enjoys throwing her intrepid heroines into unlikely situations: a Victorian woman on a spaceship, a medieval woman kidnapped by a dragon, a woman from a future matriarchy in a forced marriage to a chauvinist playboy, a typical wife and mother as the savior of an alien world.

Snail’s Pace placed second in a contest by Publishing Online and was published by them in January, 2000. (They subsequently went out-of-business). Arabella’s Gift won the Los Angeles Romance Writers’ Best Bet for Bestseller, and was to be published by Wordbeams, but they went out of business. So it goes.

Matriarchs: Eliza’s Revenge placed first in the Pacific Northwest Writers’ Association genre novel contest. (PNWA is still active.) Susan is now working on Lizzie in the Land Beyond, as well as a collection of short stories called Ferry Findings, and a children’s fantasy tentatively titled Cat’s Magic.

Susan has been writing since grade school. She has tried her hand at children’s stories, short stories, romances, historicals, essays, fantasies, mysteries, science fiction, numerous letters to the editor and a blog called Renaissance Woman.

Susan has been a burger tosser, customer service rep, ad taker, curriculum developer, parent, teacher, reader and gardener. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with two cats and one husband.

Review by: Bobb B on July 2, 2016 :
Well done, seemed to capture the mindset of a Victorian ers woman thrust into a strange and alien situation.
Well developed and an enjoyable read.
Only thing I could hope for is some sort of sequel.
