Suzanne Johnson

Suzanne Johnson is the author of the Sentinels of New Orleans urban fantasy series from Tor Books: Royal Street, River Road, Elysian Fields, and the newly released Pirate's Alley.

Recently I asked the author what she was reading. Johnson's reply:
As is usual, I’m reading two books at once, one fiction and one nonfiction.

Game Warden: On Patrol in Louisiana, by Jerald Horst. Sure, this is research for a new series I’m writing but it’s also fascinating. Most people don’t realize the training required for Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents, in a state where so much of the terrain is swamp, mud, wetlands, and water. It’s not all issuing tickets for gator-hunting violations. I can’t wait to write about them.

The Exile, by C.T. Adams. First in a new urban fantasy series, this is the first solo outing for half of the writing team behind “Cat Adams.” Although I thought the ending felt a little rushed, the world building was fascinating, the characters well-drawn, and I got sucked in from the beginning. It has a bare hint of romantic possibility without losing its focus on the political machinations of the Faerie court. A great read!
