Suzette Wallace lives in The Bahamas in a house with three of the noisiest people on the planet, who sadly are family members. Thankfully she has the luxury of an office on a quiet beach where she can indulge in stories of vampires and demons instead of triple homicide.
She grew up in a much quieter house with a mother who encouraged her love of books but totally skewed her view of reality by telling a convincing story of seeing a mermaid when she was a child. The story didn’t seem so far-fetched considering the numerous beach caves and underwater tunnels Suzette explored growing up. Now as an adult, she knows mermaids aren’t real and that she inherited her over-active imagination from her mother. But she will one day write a book about mermaids and make her mother proud.
Right now she likes writing erotic stories her mother does not read, but that are still inspired by her island home and the myriad of cultures which make up the Caribbean. Steeped in African, Spanish and French gothic mythology, these islands are often characters themselves in her paranormal stories. She has numerous shorts and books featuring the magic of the Caribbean under the name Garnell Wallace.
An island girl drawn to water, she fell in love with Venice and Poveglia and the haunted beauty of the macabre island. But she dreams about Tuscany and leaving the blues of her island for the green hills of the Florentine countryside and an old farmhouse with a good man, a dog and all the quiet a writer could ever hope for.
