FINALIST! in RoNAs 2018 and EPIC awards 2016, Susan Leona Fisher writes both historical and contemporary fiction with a romantic element. She’s particularly interested in the late Victorian to early Twentieth Century period and the influential women of those pre-female suffrage years, some of whom provide inspiration for her heroines, along with an avid interest in social and political issues of the day, which also feature strongly.
