A fifth-generation Californian, Susan Hart Snyder lives with her husband in California’s gold country in the home in which they raised their two sons. She ended up on the edge of the Central Valley in the foothills of the Sierras after spending her youth in two very different valleys – San Fernando and Silicon.
Susan received her B.A. in English and K-8 Teaching Credential from San Jose State University, and M.A. in Writing and Secondary Teaching Credential from Sacramento State University. She taught high school literature and composition as well as elementary school.
She has never strayed far from her writing life, publishing personal and motivational essays, feature, and travel articles over the years. She is in the process of writing her second novel, which will be published later this year.
