Susan Mills Wilson is a native of North Carolina where she lives with her husband and pampered golden retriever, Lady. An avid football fan, she pulls for the Carolina Panthers as long as they’re winning. She cannot function or be approached by another human being until she has her morning coffee. In addition to writing gritty, fast-paced suspense and general fiction short stories, she enjoys writing a blog on a range of topics. She is the leader of the Charlotte Writers Club Mystery Critique Group and serves on the board of the Charlotte Writers Club. She has published four romantic suspense novels: Good Gone Bad, Her Lying Eyes, Hunt for Redemption, and Meltdown. Much of her research on law enforcement came from attending Killer Nashville and participating in 3 citizen police academies. Thankfully she received only a certificate of completion from each academy and NO gun or shield. She is currently working on her fifth novel, Cruz Control, due out in 2017.
Suspense is her game and she likes nothing more than turning up the heat. The tension sizzles hot throughout her stories whether through action or character interactions. She writes because she cannot imagine not writing. Check out Susan’s books on Amazon.
