Susan Allison-Dean is an advanced board-certified Holistic Nurse. While creating healing gardens for her clients, she felt a nudge to write a novel. As much as she tried to shoo the idea away, it insisted on being written and 'I Know You're There' was born. Then came a sequel, 'By The Sound Of The Crow'. Her third novel is due out this summer.

She has authored several clinical and horticulture articles and was a contributing author to the bestselling book, Touched By A Nurse. She is passionate about the sea and loves exploring tropical islands. She extends this passion by doing volunteer work benefitting dolphins and whales. Sue splits her time between Armonk, New York and Cary, North Carolina, with her husband and English bulldog, Bubba.

If historical fiction helps us learn about history in the form of an entertaining story, environmental fiction offers to do the same about the environment. And, gosh, there is a lot for us to learn: factors influencing climate change, threats to wildlife, recycling options, renewable energy. Need I go on? It seems we can’t escape the changes; they are the front page of nearly every media source... Read more of this blog post »
