Suzanne LaFleur was born just outside of Boston, Massachusetts in 1983. When Suzanne was nine a very important thing happened. She was handed a blank composition book and told to write five lines a day. Five lines a day turned into five pages a day, which turned into a novel; soon Suzanne announced that she would write books for kids her age when she grew up. People who were already grown up told her that she had plenty of time to change her mind, but, being someone who rarely changes her mind about anything, she never did.
