Susanne Matthews


Retired educator Susanne Matthews lives in Eastern Ontario with his husband, John. They have three children and five grandchildren. An avid reader, Susanne dreamed of writing books to entertain others one day. She made that dream come true in 2013.

When she isn't writing, Susanne enjoys reading, camping in the summer, and spending quiet winter nights cuddled up on the sofa with her best guy.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
When I retired from teaching in 2010, I had too much time on my hands. I had been so busy, and suddenly, I had nothing meaningful to do. I tried my hand at replacement teaching, but my heart wasn't in it. I did a lot of reading. One day, I came across a site for would-be writers. I decided to try my hand at writing a book myself, since that was one of those items on the bucket list you don't ever expect to strike off. I penned Fire Angel in the fall of 2012, and the book was published by Crimson Romance in April 2013. I haven't looked back.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I'm currently working on several different projects. One of them is a romance that reunites a family after several years of misunderstanding. Another is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi novel with the last of humanity searching for a new planet to call home. The third is women's fiction--a book within a book--where a woman goes back to find the man she fell in love with fifty years ago to discover why he never answered her letters. I also have a couple of books in the editing stage, one of which is a historical romance dealing with early Canada.
