Suzan Tisdale 

USA Today Bestselling Author, storyteller and cheeky wench, SUZAN TISDALE lives in the Midwest with her verra handsome carpenter husband. All but one of her children have left the nest. Her pets consist of dust bunnies, a dozen poodle-sized, backyard-dwelling groundhogs, wild deer, and the occasional fox – all of which run as free and unrestrained as the voices in her head. And she doesn’t own a single pair of yoga pants, much to the shock and horror of her fellow authors. She prefers to write in her pajamas.

Suzan writes Scottish historical romance/fiction, with honorable though perfectly imperfect heroes, strong, feisty heroines, and bad guys she kills off in delightfully wicked ways.


She published her first novel, Laiden’s Daughter, in December, 2011, as a gift for her mother. With no editor, final proofer, no idea what formatting was, and no cover. That one book started a journey which led to more than 20 published titles, numerous anthologies, audiobooks, hitting the USA Today bestsellers list, and works which have been translated into five languages. She’s also very proud of the two RONE awards sitting on her mantle. 


Because of her experience in the world of indie publishing, Suzan has a keen sense of how the industry works. While she firmly believes it should always be about the writing, about improving your craft, and putting out the best possible work, she also knows you need to treat this like a business. You can’t keep the lights on and eat on principal alone. It takes dedication, fierce determination, and a lot of hard work. Add in a few tears, pounding your head on your desk, and the occasional colorful idioms, and you have a general idea of a typical work hour.


While this business often feels like a baptism by fire and the girding of your loins on an hourly basis, success is possible and attainable. Glenfinnan wants to help authors reach their fullest potential through mentorship, encouragement, and sensible marketing. 


Suzan feels exceedingly blessed in her personal life as well as her career. She believes in giving back and paying it forward. And that is how Glenfinnan Publishing came to be. Bringing in the best of the best, Suzan has big goals and dreams. Goals and dreams to help you be the best you can possibly be.
