A former criminal defense attorney for twenty years, Sue Swift always sensed a creative wellspring bubbling inside her but didn't know how to express herself. Though she studied drama in high school, art in college and has sung soprano with numerous choirs, she didn't find her niche until attending a writing class with master teacher Bud Gardner, who's turned many students into successful authors.
Within a short time, Sue realized her creative outlet was romance fiction. She began writing her first novel in November 1996 and hasn't stopped since.
The 2001 president of the Sacramento chapter of the Romance Writers of America, Sue credits the RWA, its many wonderful programs and the help of its experienced writers for her new career as a romance novelist. She also lectures to women's and writers' groups on various topics relating to the craft of writing.
Her books have garnered great reviews from Publishers Weekly and Library Journal. A 2002 RITA Award finalist, Sue's hobbies are yoga and world travel.
