Susan Forest

SUSAN FOREST is an award-winning author and editor of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. She has published over 25 short stories in Canadian and international publications.

Bursts of Fire, the first in her seven-book series Addicted to Heaven, is not only a tale of rollicking adventure, but also an opportunity—one she appreciates—for an examination of the complex world of addictions. There is no family today that has not been touched by the heartache, stigma, struggles—and the often-unrecognized courage and hope—that underpin the illness of addiction. This motif is one Susan is humbled to explore with the aspiration of provoking dialogue, and the recognition of—and respect for—those whose battles are ongoing.

Her sister—a full mountain guide with a small herd of horses—is a great resource for all things fantasy. Susan loves to travel and has been known to dictate novels from the back of her husband’s motorcycle.
