About the Author
Susan Holmes McKagan is a well-known, experienced, and credentialed writer. Her columns regularly appear on the coveted front-page cover stories for The Huffington Post and PopWrapped. She also happens to be an international supermodel, having graced covers for Vogue, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, W, Playboy, and Maxim to name a few. Susan has walked the catwalks in Paris, Milan, and New York for such prestigious designers as Chanel, Versace, Prada, Calvin Klein, Valentino, Marc Jacobs, YSL, Armani, and many more. She's been married for nearly two decades to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legend Duff McKagan of Guns N' Roses and Grammy Award-winning Velvet Revolver. Susan writes on a myriad of subjects, and has a plethora of published top-tier interviews with some of the world's leading artists, athletes, humanitarians, scientists, celebrities, designers, authors, and musicians. She develops and designs her own high-end brand of eco-friendly resort wear, Susan Holmes Swimwear, and her designs have been featured on covers from Sports Illustrated to People magazine. While living on the West Coast between her homes in Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Diego--or on a GN'R airplane--Susan dedicates most of her time to her two daughters, various charitable organizations, her incorrigibale but cute pug, and her sweet husband.
"Susan writes with such a vivid authenticity in The Velvet Rose because of her history and in depth experience in the world of fashion and rock n' roll. She offers such a unique and very rich perspective within the details of these worlds not a lot of writers can say they have."
