About this author

S.M. McEachern (also known as Susan) comes from the rocky shores of Canada’s East Coast. As a resident of Halifax during her early adult years, she attended Dalhousie University and earned an Honors Degree in International Development Studies with a focus on ocean development. Throughout her academic studies and early career, Susan had the privilege to study and work with Elizabeth Mann Borgese (daughter of nobel prize winner, Thomas Mann). An author in her own right and a political activist for world peace, Mrs. Mann Borgese played a significant influence on Susan’s view of the political world stage.

Sunset Rising is Susan's debut novel, which was published in November 2012. The second novel of the series, Worlds Collide was released in Mar

I JUST finished writing the manuscript for the third book of the Sunset Rising series, titled "New World Order." It's currently with the editor and I have an expected release date of January 2015.

I have a lot of ideas for my next project that range from a simple, old fashioned YA love story, to a more action-packed science fiction romance story. Any suggestions? Oh, and I also intend to write some novella off-shoots of the Sunset Rising series. Love to get your feedback on all of that!(less)

Hi Jenna! (and sorry for my late response!)

Both Jack and Sunny have a bit of me in them (and I think you meant Sunny? Summer was more of a minor character, although she plays a bigger role in book 3, New World Order, due out in January!).

Sunny is the determined, jaded teenager who's mad at the world (as she should be!), but learns that when she lets go of her anger, puts her energies into setting goals and begins to work with the people who can help her achieve those goals, that she can accomplish a lot. How does this relate to me? I was mad at the world once too, but when I finally stopped blaming everyone for my poverty, started setting goals and working toward them, I put myself through university.

Jack is the well-meaning, good hearted, ivory towerist who has his eyes opened. When he's the heir, living in the Dome, he thinks he knows it all and can be the saviour of the Dome. But then goes down into the Pit with Sunny and has his eyes opened. How does this relate to me? I had my eyes opened when I finished my degree in International Development, left my ivory tower, and then actually started working with "less developed" countries.

Hopefully that answers your question, but if it doesn't let me know. I'd be happy to give more details. And please feel free to get in touch any time. I'll be more diligent about checking "Ask the Author"! Thanks, Jenna.
