Specializing in Historical Fiction

I work with authors one-on-one to help them write the best books they can. Whether you’re at the very beginning with an idea that won’t let you go, stuck in the middle and uncertain how to take the story forward, or starting a revise and feeling thoroughly daunted, I have tools and a process designed to help you achieve your writing goals.

“I had already researched the time period, gotten my facts in order, and drafted an entire middle grade historical novel. But as a first-time writer, I didn’t know what I didn’t know. Susanne’s experience in the publishing industry and her own success as a writer of multiple historical novels made her a perfect match for my niche. She helped me to tighten the story, create better scenes, and yet never lose my own voice. She is truthful, but kind, and has guided me chapter by chapter to create a more engaging story.”

Beautifully, lyrically written, I was enthralled by LISZT’S KISS from the first page. Ms. Dunlap is a strong voice in today’s historical fiction.

[THE MUSICIAN’S DAUGHTER] …a gutsy, sympathetic heroine who remains true to her friends, in a fast-paced historical adventure that offers a hint of romance.

Dunlap persuasively inhabits the thoughts and emotions of her embattled protagonist; her magnetic reimagining of ANASTASIA’s story has the potential to reach a broad audience.
