Susannah Charleson is the author of the New York Times bestseller Scent of the Missing and The Possibility Dogs. A flight instructor, service dog trainer, and canine search-and-rescue team member, Charleson began a non-profit organization called The Possibility Dogs, which rescues, trains, and places dogs with people suffering “unseen” disabilities. She lives in Texas with her ever-growing brood of animals, canine, feline, anything that needs rescuing.
Her next book, Where the Lost Dogs Go: A Story of Love, Search, and the Power of Reunion, will be published by Houghton Mifflin in June 2019.
As a radio producer and media liaison for her unit, Charleson has written magazine and newsletter articles, multimedia productions, news stories, and features for commercial radio, radio theatre and parody, catalogue copy for a vintage jewelry store, and serial fiction on AOL. Her research interests include air-ground search procedure, the behavior of Alzheimers walkaways, and wildlife behavior in the presence of human distress and death.
