Dr. Susan Kroeg is a proud Midwestern farm girl who grew up loving to read and write. She discovered nineteenth-century English literature via historical romance novels. After completing her PhD she joined the faculty at EKU in 2001, where she teaches courses in English literature (primarily the 18th and 19th centuries, with a special emphasis on British Romanticism and the novels of Jane Austen), literature and film, and popular romance. She also writes romance novels under a pen name.

She lives in Richmond with her husband (a history professor) and their daughter.
