Susan Gabriel is an acclaimed southern author who lives in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Her novels, The Secret Sense of Wildflower (a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2012) and Temple Secrets (2015) are Amazon and Nook #1 bestsellers.

Her latest novel, Trueluck Summer, is also an Amazon & Nook #1 bestseller. Set in Charleston, South Carolina, the summer of 1964, it tells the story of “A widowed grandmother ready to spread her wings. A 12-year-old granddaughter looking for a summertime adventure. Together, they are going to attempt the impossible.” One reader wrote in her review: “In a time when TV and social media often paint a hopeless and angry picture, I needed to read a book that would lift me up. Trueluck Summer was that book. Susan Gabriel's final words express perfectly what I felt.”

Her southern novel Temple Secrets is a book club favorite and takes place in Savannah, Georgia with a cast of characters - some of them ghosts - that her readers love.
