About the Author

Susan Stoner, writing as S.L. Stoner, is a native Oregonian who works full time as a labor union lawyer. Like that of her series hero, Sage Adair, Stoner’s life has tended toward the adventurous. She’s worked in skid road bars, Las Vegas casinos, free clinics and as a prisoners’ advocate, psychology center videographer and federal judge’s intern. Besides living in Portland, Oregon, Susan has also lived in a forest lean-to, a Sikh home in Singapore, alongside an alligator-infested Louisiana bayou, inside a sweltering Las Vegas tent, in a camper atop a ‘65 International pick-up truck as well as in a variety of more traditional Houston, Texas, abodes. She was a participant in Portland’s original neighborhood movement and has since been involved in citizen activism, like filing and winning a lawsuit to preserve Portland’s soon-to-be destroyed historical open reservoirs (one of those “win the battle, lose the war” experiences). She lives with her husband and two dogs in Southeast Portland when they are not traveling or hanging out in the great Cascade range forests. One of her passions is historical research, particularly that involving original source material. The third book in the Sage Adair series, Dry Rot, was published in June 2013. The fourth, Black Drop, is in the final editing process and will be released early 2014.
