Susannah Appelbaum is the author of the renowned young-adult trilogy, The Poisons of Caux. DIVAH is her fourth book.

Susannah comes from a family of doctors and philosophers. She worked for many years in magazine publishing, and now lives with her family in New York’s Hudson Valley and in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, where her garden prefers to grow weeds.

…Appelbaum’s fluent prose shimmers with magical threads, like the tapestry into which one of her characters disappears. —Chronogram
