Suz 8771Suzanne Brockmann is the New York Times bestselling author of fifty-three novels.  Her favorite is the one where her most popular character, gay FBI agent Jules Cassidy, wins his happily-ever-after and marries the man of his dreams.  Called All Through the Night, this was the first mainstream romance novel with a hero and a hero ever to hit the New York Times hardcover fiction bestseller list.  In 2007, Suz donated all of her earnings from this bookin perpetuity, to MassEquality, to help win and preserve equal marriage rights in Massachusetts.

Since her explosion onto the publishing scene twenty years ago, Suz is now widely recognized as one of the leading voices in romantic suspense.

Married to author and screenwriter Ed Gaffney, Suz divides her time between Sarasota, Florida and Boston, Massachusetts. She has two grown children, Melanie, who is a personal trainer and a writer, and Jason, who is an actor and tap dancer.  Suz also has two miniature schnauzers, C.K. Dexter-Haven and Little Joe, both of whom (unlike Mel and Jason) still live at home.

Suz has recently co-written a Young Adult paranormal romance called NIGHT SKY with her daughter, Melanie.  It’ll be released in late 2014, from Sourcebooks.

Suz also recently produced her first independent feature-length movie, a romantic comedy called THE PERFECT WEDDING, that she co-wrote with her husband Ed and her son Jason. The film is available now via streaming and on DVD from Wolfe Releasing.  Find out more at www.ThePerfectWeddingMovie.com.

Note from Suz: You can reach me via email at SuzanneBrockmann@aol.com.  Although I gotta be honest. If you’re gonna email to tell me that I’m going to hell for writing books that have gay characters, please don’t waste your time.  Surely there’s SOMETHING better that you can do today.

Here’s a suggestion:  Surf on over to the Wounded Warrior Project or the USO website and exert some energy there instead.  And guess what?  Despite our differences, we have something in common, because we both care about our servicemen and servicewomen!

For the record, I believe that love is love, and that love is a gift, and I’m deeply sorry if you don’t feel the same.

(For those of you who only wanted my email address to tell me you found a typo in chapter three? Or maybe that you liked one of my books . . . ? Sorry you had to wade through that!  I appreciate your kindness and thank you wholeheartedly for your support.)
