The amazing Suzanne Young is the author of A Need So Beautiful (Balzer&Bray/HarperCollins), the upcoming novels, A Want So Wicked (Summer 2012) and The Program (SimonPulse, Spring 2013). 

Suzanne currently lives in Portland, Oregon where she uses the rainy weather as an excuse to stay inside and write obsessively.  After earning her degree in creative writing, Suzanne spent several years teaching middle school language arts in Arizona. Now she can be found at home chasing after her two children and writing novels for teens.
