Susan writes second chance romances with a touch of magic as Susan B. James and children’s books as Susan J. Berger.

She writes older heroines because she is chronologically gifted and enjoys creating characters who remember that change is only on the outside. Inside our older shells is a much younger psyche.

In her debut romance, Time and Forever, two women in their sixties inadvertently travel back to London in 1969. Time and Forever was a 2015 Golden Quill finalist for Best First Book and a 2015 RONE finalist for Best Time Travel Book. It is the September 2017 Book of the month at TBRPile

Maybe This Time, the companion book, debuted in July 2017. It is available in paperback or Kindle. The audiobook comes out February 2018.

 Susan’s other career is acting.

In 2016, among other things, she killed Kathy Bates on American Horror Story. In 2017, among other things, she got stabbed by a pen on Future Man and played the victim on Major Crimes. Karma? So far in 2018 she’s been a babysitter on Lucifer. Who knows what’s next. The joy is in the journey.
