S.M. McEachern (also known as Susan) has an honors degree in International Development from Dalhousie University. As an author, Susan combined her political background with her love of young adult romance fiction to create her debut novel Sunset Rising. In March 2014 she published Worlds Collide, the second book in the series. She just finished writing the third book, New World Order, which was published January 2015.
With her background in international development and resource management, as well as being the wife of a military officer, Susan has had first hand experience in international affairs and policies. She attributes Elizabeth Mann Borgese—daughter of Nobel prize winner, Thomas Mann—as one of the greatest influences on her view of world politics. McEachern had the privilege to work and study under Mann Borgese, an author, teacher and political activist for world peace. The Sunset Rising Trilogy combines Susan’s knowledge of politics and resource management with her love for romance, action and adventure.
