C. D. Sutherland is a B-52 pilot turned novelist, with his The Chronicles of Susah series. These novels defy conventional classification as they blend action and emotional tension with technology and spiritual intrigue in a coming of age story wrapped in an epic adventure set in the antediluvian age. His readers have called him the founding father of this genre, Antediluvian Steampunk.
Born in Virginia, to the son of a coal-miner who escaped a life in the dark Appalachian mines by joining the U.S. military, C. D. Sutherland also joined the military. After high school, he served in the Air Force for thirty-two years, seeing much of the world, flying jets and doing other such things most men have only dreamed of doing.
