About the Author

Susan Adrian is a fourth-generation Californian who now lives in the beautiful Big Sky country of Montana. She began ballet late--at age eight--but got to fulfill her dream of playing Clara in The Nutcracker when she was thirteen, before joining the Sacramento Ballet. Later she got a degree in English from the University of California, Davis. These days she's settled in as a writer, scientific editor, and mom. When she's not with her family, she keeps busy researching crazy stuff, traveling, and writing more books. She still sees The Nutcracker every year she can, and tries really hard not to act out all the parts. Follow Susan on Twitter at @susan_adrian, and visit her on the Web at susanadrian.net.
