SK Sutphen grew up in the straightforward and pragmatic Midwest states of South Dakota and Wisconsin. She loved the library, and the books that let her look into peoples' lives in faraway locations. Her sisters often asked for bedtime stories, and she made up characters and put them in situations to make her sisters squeal with fear or giggle at silly antics. While reading novels across different genres, she sometimes though about writing one, too.
SK Sutphen lives most of her life as Sussan Sutphen. She lived and worked in the Midwest for many years as a physician before relocating to Atlanta, GA, away from the cold and snow. She earned a masters in professional writing from Kennesaw State University and is a freelance medical writer. Sutphen has had three short stories published - "Delivery" in Atlanta Medicine and "Night Bus" and "Jimmy" in Borderlines: A Collection of Short Stories. Guardian Angel is her first novella, and she is at work on her next book. When not writing, she enjoys home tours and helping her husband as his interior design assistant where her research skills come in handy.
