Suzette Riddick

At fifteen, an upperclassman slipped Suzette Riddick her first romance novel. Immediately, she became engrossed in the romance genre. Years later, she discovered there were romance novels written by African-American women with characters that looked like her. Searching local bookstores for her favorite authors became an enjoyable pastime for Suzette.

Suzette’s love for the genre and a need to find a place of escapism encouraged her to write her first novel, A Special Summer, in 2008, under a pen name. After readers provided positive feedback and expressed their eagerness to know what would happen next with the characters, Suzette was inspired to write the sequel, When Love Comes Around, and before she knew it, the Love Conquers All Series was born. Second Chance at Love, from the Love Conquers All series, received a nomination for an Emma Award for E-book of the Year.

Currently, Suzette is working on creating stories with fascinating characters that will make readers want to follow them on their journeys to love and happiness.

Although reading and writing are near and dear to Suzette’s heart, being a wife, mother, sister, friend, and nurse practitioner makes her the happiest.
