On Aug. 28, 2005, Suzanne Johnson loaded two dogs, a cat, a friend, and her mom into a car and fled New Orleans in the hours before Hurricane Katrina made landfall.
Four years later, she began weaving her experiences and love for her city into the Sentinels of New Orleans urban fantasy series, beginning with Royal Street (2012), continuing with River Road (2012), and now with Elysian Fields (August 2013).
She grew up in rural Alabama, halfway between the Bear Bryant Museum and Elvis’ birthplace, and lived in New Orleans for fifteen years—which means she has a highly refined sense of the absurd and an ingrained love of SEC football and fried gator on a stick.
She can be found online at her website or her daily blog, Preternatura. As Susannah Sandlin, she writes the best-selling Penton Vampire Legacy paranormal romance series and the recent standalone, Storm Force.

Every now and then I read a series that takes me by surprise, steals my heart or flat out blows me away. Sometimes it’s paranormal romance, sometimes it’s urban fantasy and once in a while it might even be steampunk, regardless of their genre they all deliver. When I find theses rare jewels, I can’t help but read one book after the other…so I got to thinking (can you smell the wood burning?…haha): Why not spread the world and share […]
