If you’re looking for either S.M. McEachern or Susan McEachern, you’re in the right place. S.M. is the author of the young adult series, Sunset Rising, and Susan is the author of the new adult novel, Shag Lake (currently in production).
Prior to beginning my journey as an author, I studied and worked in international development and resource management at Dalhousie University and the International Centre for Ocean Development alongside one of the world’s greatest peace activists, Elizabeth Mann-Borgese, daughter of Nobel Prize winner, Thomas Mann. She deserves mention in my author bio because she was an enormous influence on my view of world politics–ethics that have wound their way into all of my books. My understanding of world politics has been further strengthened in my role as a military wife to an Air Force officer. He’s been all over the world, including some political hotspots for long periods of time, and occasionally he’s dragged me with him, snagging invites for us to places like Buckingham Palace, and soirees with world leaders and military elites.
In 2013 I decided to finally pursue my lifelong dream of writing, and it was the best decision I’ve ever made. I’ve learned a lot over the past few years, joining writing groups and honing my craft as a writer, as well as having the opportunity to work with an amazing technical team who started off as Vook, then transformed into Pronoun, and is now the ebook publishing platform of McMillan. And as enriching as those experiences have been, the best part of my writing journey has been the support I’ve received from so many readers. Without you guys, I wouldn’t be writing.
