Susanne Saville is descended from Governor Endecott and has two master's degrees, one in history and one in library science. This has aided her research into Salem's history, as have copious amounts of caffeine and chocolate. She is the author of multiple works of fiction, but writing Hidden History of Salem has proven the adage truth is stranger. She hopes you will visit her at www.SusanneSaville.com.
