Suzanne DeKeyzer James born in Pineville, Louisiana, and now living in Arcadia, Louisiana, began writing voraciously at the age of fifteen. Careers have come and gone but the love of writing has never waned or lost its allure. “To sit down and create a host of characters, unimagined places, languages, and situations for those characters to deal with is the greatest pleasure for me.” Suzanne’s background is in art and communications. She is a mixed media artist and web site designer. Suzanne has written and published articles and short stories in local and literary publications. Currently she is at work on several projects both fiction and non-fiction. Her next novel is entitled: The Ballencoo Arch: Book III of the Gateway Chronicles.
