Thankful Author 2017- Tina Susedik

Every year, as I get older, my thankfulness for my family increases. I’ve been married for almost forty-five years, have two healthy, happy children and their spouses, and adore my five grandchildren. As I watch my grandchildren grow, I marvel at them becoming young adults and forming their own personalities and opinions.

I’m also thankful for the opportunities writing has given me. I’ve met new authors and made friends with readers at conferences, workshops and conventions. I’ve been able to help other authors with their work which fulfills my need to teach. This was the year I became an award-winning author, which any author would be happy about.

I live in a warm house, have food to eat, and my health. My family is thriving. What more could anyone ask for?

About the Author: 

As a child, Tina Susedik always had stories floating around in her head, but had no idea those stories could be put down in book form as writing stories wasn't taught in her classes. One day her brother (yes, her brother) introduced her to Kathleen Woodiwiss’ The Flame and the Flower. Tina was hooked and a love of reading, and eventually writing romance, began. Besides her romances, she is also a non-fiction writer with seven history books in print. She also has written and published two children's books. She also writes under her pen name, Anita Kidesu. This winter she will begin hosting a radio talk show, “Your Book Garden” on Authors on the Air Radio Network.

Tina has been married for forty-four years and lives in Northwestern Wisconsin. She has two children and five grandchildren. After careers in accounting and teaching (not necessarily at the same time), she found her career in writing is what fulfills her the most. When not writing, she loves camping, hiking, photography, reading, and playing with her five grandchildren.

She is a member of Romance Writers of America, Wisconsin Romance Writers of America, Sisters in Crime
