Susan Ronald

Susan Ronald is a British-American writer, born in Los Angeles California.  She has lived most of my adult life in Europe – first in France and then home in England for over twenty years. History and translating it into commercially viable projects have been my lifeblood for my entire career — be it restoration of historic buildings to alternate use for governments, biographies of historical figures, or writing film scripts about famous people like William Shakespeare, Eleanor of Aquitaine, or Tsar Nicholas II. Still, writing non-fiction books has been my primary focus since becoming a full-time writer in 2010.
