Award-winning author GILLIAN DOYLE lives in Long Beach, CA with her husband and a menagerie of pets--dogs, cats, birds, fish. Several years ago, in a community college writing course taught by poet and novelist Frank Gaspar, Gillian submitted a one-page assignment that led to an invitation to his novel-writing workshop. The dark historical tale of two characters with psychic powers became her first published book in 1989 when St. Martin's Press released RAPTURE'S LEGACY by Susan Phillips (not the same author as Susan Elizabeth Phillips). Under the name Susan Leslie Liepitz, she has s written time-travel romances for Jove Time Passages and contemporary romance for Harlequin Temptation.
Gillian has been a member of Orange County Chapter of Romance Writers of America since 1985, serving on the executive board for a number of years, including Co-President and Treasurer. She is also a member of Novelists, Inc., Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime and Authors Guild.
Gillian has now taken her paranormal interests into the realm of supernatural suspense as well as narrative nonfiction.
