About the Author

“I never knew my father,” says Susan Taylor Brown. “If I never told you anything else about me, that would say a lot about why I wrote this book. Because I didnt know him, didnt know anyone from his family, I invented elaborate stories in which I was suddenly ‘found and reunited with a father who loved me, who wanted me, who needed me to make his life complete. Of course, that never happened. In writing this book I gave myself the father Ive never known.” Susan lives in San Jose, California, with her husband, her dog, and more than 5,000 books.
