Susan Dennard has come a long way from small-town Georgia. With a masters degree in marine biology, she got to travel the world—six out of seven continents, to be exact (she’ll get to Asia one of these days!)—before she settled down as a full-time novelist and writing instructor.

She is the author of the Something Strange and Deadly series (from HarperTeen) as well as the forthcoming Witchlands Series (Tor, 2015). When not writing, she can be found hiking with her dogs, exploring tidal pools, or earning bruises at the dojo.

You can learn more about Susan on her website, blog, newsletter, Twitter, or Pinterest.

message 5: by Susan

Susan Yep! The title now SOMETHING STRANGE AND DEADLY. :) I'm doing a big announcement tomorrow on my blog.

THE SPIRIT-HUNTERS was always just a working title, and I've been working with HarperCollins for a few months now to find the perfect official title. :) Finally, we settled on SOMETHING STRANGE AND DEADLY as both catchy and commercial.

Kendall Anne HI Susan! Does your book, The Spirit Hunters, have a new name now, Something Strange and Deadly? Just wondering...I was confused! =)


Erica (daydreamer) Thanks for adding me as a friend! Your book looks really interesting!

Susan Yeah, I saw that! Thanks!! I really appreciate you adding it. :D And, I hopehopehope you enjoy it!


Kathy (Kindle-aholic) The Spirit-Hunters looks like a lot of fun. It's on my list!
