About the Author

Suzanne Hadfield Semsch has been writing both personally and professionally for many years. For over a decade she was responsible for composing and producing magazines, newsletters and promotional material for a private boarding school. She researched and wrote the military history chapter in Westmoreland County, Virginia's tricentennial commemorative book, and her nonfiction articles have appeared in historical magazines. Her lifelong interest in literature and history led to extensive research that resulted in the 2009 publication of her first novel, The Lees of Menokin, based on the life and times of Francis Lightfoot Lee, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. In The Sound of Caissons, also historical fiction, the author has drawn on her life experience as the daughter and wife of career Army officers to establish authentic time and place. She has lived in Europe and thirteen states, including Alaska when it was still a territory, and presently resides in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the forty-seventh house she has called home.
