Susan J. Anderson was born in Chicago and currently resides in Lake County, Illinois. Formerly a U.S. Navy dependent, living near a large body of water has been a constant. In addition to Illinois, Susan has lived in California and Maryland.
The tween years were a pivotal time in Susan’s life. Her father received orders to be stationed in Naples, Italy for three years. Susan attended an American school plus befriended Italian young people in her neighborhood.
During that time, the Anderson family traveled extensively throughout western Europe. Living overseas helped shape Susan’s international perspective and appreciation for other cultures.
A graduate of Woodlands Academy of the Sacred Heart in Lake Forest, Illinois, the faculty taught each pupil to be her best. The message was always “If you can dream it, do it”.
As a college junior, Susan studied in Oxford, England. She holds a B.A. in Management & Business from Barat College in Lake Forest, Illinois. Her passions include travel, history and writing.
