About the Author:

Suzanne Brown proudly wears her flip-flops into fall, hoping to stretch the season out just a little longer. She has spent summer months cooking pancakes on the grill in Martha's Vineyard, water-skiing in the Adirondacks, and relaxing on the coast of South Carolina. When Brown's not digging for clams or daydreaming of summers gone by, she runs Suzanne Brown Design, a successful design and image consulting firm in Chappaqua, New York, where she lives with her husband.
