Susan Dennard is a native of Georgia (1984). She is the author of Windwitch: A Witchlands Novel, the second book of The Witchlands YA fantasy series (2017). A full-time novelist and writing instructor, she is the NY Times bestselling author of Truthwitch (2016). Her debut novel, Something Strange and Deadly, was published in 2012.
Holder of a Master’s degree in marine biology, Susan travelled the world, more precisely six out of seven continents (Asia will be her destination one of these days), before she settled down in the Midwestern US as a full-time novelist and writing instructor with her husband, a place where she still currently lives.
She originally planned to major in English at University of Georgia, but as she was fascinated by science, she finally completed Bachelor’s degrees in Fisheries and Statistics instead, and then completed her Master’s in Marine Biology at the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research in Windsor, Ontario, with the intention of solving the problem of overfishing. In 2009, she chose to forego completing a PhD and joined her now husband in Europe.
In the present time, Susan Dennard also runs a blog and newsletter (Misfits & Daydreamers) offering tips for helping aspiring authors write novels, find agents, and earn publishing deals. When not writing, she can be found hiking with her dogs, exploring tidal pools, practising karate or reading.
Windwitch: A Witchlands Novel is the second book of The Witchlands YA fantasy series (Book #1 published in 2016, Book #2 in 2017).
Susan Dennard returns with a follow up to New York Times bestselling novel Truthwitch.
After an explosion destroys his ship, the world believes Prince Merik, Windwitch, is dead. Scarred yet alive, Merik is determined to prove his sister’s treachery. Upon reaching the royal capital, crowded with refugees, he haunts the streets, fighting for the weak―which leads to whispers of a disfigured demigod, the Fury, who brings justice to the oppressed.
When the Bloodwitch Aeduan discovers a bounty on Iseult, he makes sure to be the first to find her―yet in a surprise twist, Iseult offers him a deal. She will return money stolen from him, if he locates Safi. Now they must work together to cross the Witchlands, while constantly wondering, who will betray whom first?
After a surprise attack and shipwreck, Safi and the Empress of Marstok barely escape with their lives. Alone in a land of pirates, every moment balances on a knife’s edge―especially when the pirates’ next move could unleash war upon the Witchlands.
Sometimes our enemies are also our only allies…
