Suzanne Tierney is an award-winning author whose historical novels, Blooms of War and The Art of the Scandal, have earned Amazon best seller status.

She writes books steeped in the lush details of history that tell of heroines thoroughly devoted to their sense of place, even when it’s the wrong place and the heroes who catapult, challenge and cherish those heroines, even when they have no intention of setting down roots. Her books have been described as “propulsive,” with “fierce” and “unforgettable heroines” whose love stories “write themselves in your heart.”

Her obsession with sense of place likely stems from having lived in five countries before the age of seven, and while she spent her formative years basking in the grey skies of Oregon, she now finds herself battling humidity, sunshine, and salt air in Florida.

Suzanne's Sessions

Creating Sense of Place – October 26 @ 7PM EDT

You’re writing a passionate story that makes your creative heart gallop. The characters are clear, their struggle dynamic. And you’ve set it in the City of Light, the City of Love, with its iconic la dame de fer.

Parfait! Except, you’ve never been to Paris. So how do you describe the feel of the cold rain of a Paris autumn when you can’t get on a plane.

Pas de problème. Award-winning author Suzanne Tierney took readers from the battlefields of Northern France to 1919 London in the Amazon bestselling book Blooms of War, all without leaving her Florida home. Join her in this free session as she shares the tricks she uses to capture a story’s setting without getting lost in the research rabbit hole.

Suzanne will show you how to make your story accurate and, even more importantly, so evocative that your reader shivers at the mere thought of the cold wind whipping through the narrow alleyways around La Fontaine Saint Michel.

Register here to join this free session and go into the draw to win a copy of Blooms of War.

Monday, October 26 @ 7PM Eastern | 4PM Pacific | midnight Paris | 10AM (Tuesday) Melbourne
