Susan Thomas-Czarnecki was born in Southampton, England, in 1965. Educated in Dorchester, she moved to California at the age of seventeen, returning to England two years later to study theology at London Bible College.
After three years teaching in a secondary school in Norwich, she moved again, but this time east, to Poland, where she lived for nineteen years running an English language school for local Polish children before returning with her two children to settle in Teignmouth, the setting for her first children’s novel, Mist on the Window.
She now enjoys her days gardening, sketching, and writing. She is currently working on the sequel to Beyond the Mist: Miss Lister’s Pen as well as her series of shorter children’s sit-down tales and is also hoping to complete her adult novel Lena in the near future.
