Suzanna J. Linton grew up in rural Orangeburg County. At age eight, she tried to read The Secret Garden by herself. After following her mother around for a day, asking questions about the Yorkshire accent, she gave up, but that didn't deter her in developing a deep appreciation for books and the worlds to which they open. A few years later, she wrote her first poem, which eventually led her to try writing fiction.

In 2002, she went to the summer program at the SC Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, where she refined her poetry and wrote her first decent short story (before this, she mostly wrote novels along with her poetry). In 2003, Suzanna began attending Francis Marion University, where she graduated with a Bachelor's in Engli

Suzanna J. Linton I have an idea for a third novel but I can't promise anything! The great thing about Lorst is that it leaves a lot open for more stories.

John Wayne once said that courage isn't not being afraid. It's being afraid and saddling up anyway. The best way to deal with that is just to sit down, write and damn the torpedoes. If it sucks, you can fix it later.(less)

Secret Burdens by Suzanna J. Linton
"A fantasy novel that I very much enjoyed! I do wish that there had been more action and that it had been more deeply described. Beyond that I liked the characters and the world building a lot! I'd read more of this series in the future.

I was really tempted to give this book 3 stars but I decided on 4 because the world itself is so compelling. However, my main problem with the book is with Daleina. She has so little self-esteem and had to be continually uplifted by other characters. ...more

“Oh-ho, so you are a witch. More like a witchling, as you're too small to be a full witch.” (Emmerich)”
Suzanna J. Linton, Clara

“Emmerich's heart in his throat, he could only stare down at Monica, who looked up at him with glassy eyes as she shivered with pain and choked on blood.”
Suzanna J. Linton, Clara

“Before she could let herself think, Clara burst from the door and bolted for the table. People just began turning when she grasped the guest and shoved him to the ground, the chair flying backwards. Wine and food spilled everywhere as he flung out his arms. For a moment, she felt a swift pressure, as if her hair was being pulled, before strong hands gripped her, flinging her to the floor. A boot pressed into her back and she felt the cold tip of blade on her neck above her slave's collar.”
Suzanna J. Linton, Clara

“My books happen. They tend to blast in from nowhere, seize me by the throat, and howl 'Write me! Write me now!' But they rarely stand still long enough for me to see what and who they are, before they hurtle away again. And so I spend a lot of time running after them, like a thrown rider after an escaped horse, saying 'Wait for me! Wait for me!' and waving my notebook in the air.”
Robin McKinley

“I don't put up with being messed around, and I don't suffer fools gladly. The short version of that is that I'm a bitch. Trust me, I can provide character references.”
