About Me




Susan writes second chance romances with a touch of magic as Susan B. James and children’s books as Susan J. Berger. She writes older heroines because she is chronologically gifted and enjoys creating characters who remember that change is only on the outside. Inside our older shells is a much younger psyche.
In her debut romance, Time and Forever, two women in their sixties inadvertently travel back to London in 1969. Maybe This Time, is the companion book. Her third book, will debut in 2019
 Susan’s other career is acting. In 2016, among other things, she killed Kathy Bates on American Horror Story- Roanoke. In 2017, among other things, she got stabbed by a pen on Future Man and played the victim on Major Crimes. Karma? So far in 2018 she’s been a babysitter on Lucifer, a bar-fly on Shameless, A tattoo addict on Mom, and she died in the yet-to-be-released movie, Looks that kill. More to come.

I feel so lucky because so many of my dreams have come true.

I fell in love and got married.

I got to be on Broadway in a musical. I never dreamed of having children, but my sons turned out to be my best dreams of all.

Christmas 1982
I had a taste of what it was like to get famous when my husband, Barry Corbin, was one of the stars of Northern Exposure. Watching that cast handle sudden fame was an education.



Barry and I are no longer married, but we still are good friends.


My first book, Jamie’s Dream, written with my younger son, Christopher when he was ten, was accepted for publication and published on Chris’s 25th birthday. Since then I’ve had two other children’s books published. 
In 2011, I signed a contract with Beach Lane Books, Allyn Johnston’s imprint at Simon and Schuster, for my Great American Novel, Log on Log. (My Great American Novel is sixty five words long. Big change from romance writing.)

I got my first television series at age sixty six. Warren The Ape. I didn’t run long, but the rush of being informed I was a regular is indescribable. In the past couple of years I've done a lot more TV work.

In 2013 I celebrated my 70th birthday with a trip to Ireland and Scotland with my sister and brother in law. Not only did I have a wonderful time, but I got a setting and plot for my next romance. The adventures just keep coming.

My Hobbies include reading (Duh!) Beach walks and movies and doing jigsaw puzzles.

Right now my other prime obsession is improvisation. My son Chris decided we need to be the first mother/son improv team.  He says in ten years we will be good. I like long term goals.
