Award-winning, best-selling author Susan Grant blasted into the romance-writing world at warp speed when she created an entirely new sub genre: aviation romance. As one of the first women in history to attend the USAF Academy, a former Air Force instructor pilot, and currently a 747 jumbo jet pilot for United Airlines, Susan writes about what she likes best: flying and the delicious interaction between the sexes. Her debut romance, the historical time travel ONCE A PIRATE, went back to press within days of its official release. Her second book, THE STAR KING, a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist and the winner of an AAR Reader Award, blew apart age and species barriers when it paired a 43-year-old heroine with a very sexy alien. Its sequel THE STAR PRINCE won the PEARL, the Dorothy Parker, and the Colorado award of Excellence. Look for her contemporary romantic comedy in the new anthology A MOTHER'S WAY, and this October, her break-out book, a sexy romantic suspense CONTACT. A mom to two very active kids, Susan was featured with author Nora Roberts on the television show Extra!
