Dr. Bell's adventure in forensic chemistry began a long time ago in a galaxy far to the west of West Virginia. She began with a BS with a double major in chemistry and police science(criminal justice)at Northern Arizona University. She then ventured to the University of New Haven in Connecticut and obtained an MS in forensic science . After working for the New Mexico State Police for several years, she ventured north to Los Alamos National Laboratory where she was an environmental analytical chemist. She returned to university at the ripe old age of 29 at New Mexico State where she obtained her PhD in chemistry working under Dr. Gary Eiceman. Incidentally, three of the four research schools she has been affiliated with have colors of blue and gold, as was her junior high school. This could be fate, it could be destiny, or it could be coincidence.

Suzanne's love of writing began about the time when she was at NMSU, where the pressures of the doctoral program forced her to seek an outlet. She is the author of much mediocre and unpublished fiction and the joy she found in the act of writing led her to test the non-fiction and textbook waters. Currently, she has two projects underway in various stages of completion in addition to the books seen here.
