Susan Spann lives in Northern California with her husband, teenage son and three cats (one of which is large enough that it really counts as two). She is a member of the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Association and is represented by literary agent Sandra Bond of the Bond Literary Agency.
When not running amok or too far in the weeds, Susan writes the SHINOBI mysteries, featuring master ninja Hiro Hattori and his Portuguese Jesuit sidekick, Father Mateo. The first novel, in which Hiro has just three days to find a samurai’s killer and save the life of the beautiful geisha accused of the crime, is scheduled for publication in Spring 2013 by St. Martin’s Press/Thomas Dunne Books.
Susan also likes archery, gardening and reading, but does not much like writing biographical statements. You can find her on Twitter: @SusanSpann, where she founded the #PubLaw hashtag.
