Susanne O'Leary is the bestselling author of 22 novels, mainly in the romantic fiction genre. She has also written three crime novels and two in the historical fiction genre. She has been the wife of a diplomat (still is), a fitness teacher and a translator. She now writes full-time from either of two locations, a ramshackle house in County Tipperary, Ireland or a little cottage overlooking the Atlantic in Dingle, County Kerry. When she is not scaling the mountains of said counties (including MacGillycuddy's Reeks, featured in Full Irish), or keeping fit in the local gym, she keeps writing, producing a book every six months.

“course, she found them sexy. Daisy sighed and gave up the self-therapy. No use dwelling on it. She decided then and there to stay away from men for a while—maybe forever.”

Those who crowd in my path do not know that I am walking alone with you
Those who love me do not know that their love brings you to my heart”
