Flying and travel are in Susan Moss's blood – she visited four of the world's continents before starting school. She read avidly and wrote determinedly in between plotting to become a spy and building brother-proof camps.

She studied Psychology at Trinity College, Cambridge, taking part in some interesting experiments in parapsychology as well as playing trumpet in a Big Band.

A chance meeting in an Austrian ski hut resulted in more travel – this time to Germany, where she now lives in a small town outside Frankfurt with her husband and son.

She still makes use of her trumpet-playing, spying and camp-building skills in her busy life as an author, mother and freelance marketing consultant.

The Al-Eden Emergency is the third in S.P. Moss's series

Luckily, he's a writer too, so I could pinch and pilfer many of his experiences for my story. He also acted as my technical advisor.

In addition, living in Germany, many local sights and landmarks inspired me. I found the name "Krautwurst" on a gravestone, for example.(less)
