Susan A. Jennings lives in Ottawa, overlooking the Ottawa River, where she does most of her writing. Twelve years ago she wrote a memoir and was bitten by the writing bug. She now writes short stories, cozy mysteries and has recently completed her novel, a historical romance. Her passion for writing has led her to motivate and encourage beginner writers, through workshops, retreats and groups. Susan is president of Ottawa Independent Writers (OIW) and founded the writing group, The Ottawa Story Spinners, (TOSS), who are preparing to publish their fifth book later this year. Susan writes for the love of writing.
