Hi! I am Susan Rocan, a proud Canadian, the mother of two young adults, with a young grandson who has stolen my heart. I am also the published author of two teen novels – Withershins and Spirit Quest. When I am not writing, I work with special needs students and visit schools to talk about writing – and I love to make homemade cards.
The teens and young adults who have read my books have fired some very interesting questions at me that I will try to answer here in this blog. Please check them out and if you can think of any other information you would like to know about writing, the publishing process or my historical research, leave your questions in the ‘Comments’ box and I will be happy to reply with the best of my knowledge.
I have tried to inject my love of History into my stories. I think this passion had a lot to do with the research my father did when he was creating our family tree. It inspired me. The two novels mentioned above were set in 1846 and described some of the real-life personalities who were important to creating the city of Winnipeg along with other aspects of Manitoba’s past. I hope I can inspire you, too.
