Susan King, née Longhi (b. 1951 in New York, USA) is an American writer of historical romance novels as Susan King, Sarah Gabriel and Susan Fraser King. King's work has been translated into five languages, and she has received awards from Romantic Times Magazine as well as a RITA Award nomination from the Romance Writers of America.



Susan Longhi born on 1951 in upstate New York, United States, and she raised there. She attended the University of Maryland, where she earned a B.A. in Studio Art and an M.A. in Art History.[1] After completing her studies, King lectured in art history and art theory and pursued a doctoral degree in medieval art history, again at the University of Maryland. Following her M.A., King wrote her first novel, The Black Thorne's Rose, which was published by Penguin/Topaz in September 1994.[1] Many of her novels, which have been published in several foreign languages,[1] feature Celtic legends and myths. Her passion for art and history lend her books a high level of historical accuracy and detail that set King's work apart from many others in the genre.

King has been nominated for the Romance Writers of America RITA Award for Best Long Historical.[1] She has been the recipient of the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Medieval Novel and the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award for Career Achievement in Medieval Historical Romance.[2] She is a member of the Romance Writers of America and Novelists, Inc, and has served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Washington Romance Writers. King currently resides in Maryland.
