BiographyEdit

Susan Sizemore began writing her own stories as a child. As an adult, she wrote fan fiction set in the Star Trek universe. She later began writing original romance novels.[1] In 1991, when she was 40, she won the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award, presented to a previously unpublished author. Three days later, she sold her debut novel, a time-travel romance called Wings of the Storm.[1][2] Within several years, she was able to begin writing full-time.[2]

Later in her career, she was asked to write a media tie-in novel based on the television series Forever Knight. Her book, Forever Knight: A Stirring of Dust, marked the first time she had written about vampires. This endeavor inspired her to create her own original series about a vampire world. The resulting series, known as Laws of the Blood, is a fantasy series with some romantic elements. Sizemore later created a second vampire world. Books in the new series, Primes, are paranormal romances, focusing much more on the relationships than the fantasy world. Although both series focus on vampires, Sizemore has created distinct and separate universes.[2] Her background in cultural anthropology has helped her to create unique cultures for her vampires.[3] Sizemore gives her vampires modern human problems, as they struggle with relationships and raising children. Each novel also prominently features a human character, allowing the books to show several very different perspectives on the worlds.[4]

Sizemore has been nominated for two Romantic Times awards.

Sizemore died on July 21, 2020, at the age of 69.[5]
