ALTHOUGH James Patterson is a popular author who has sold millions of books, he is not the only author in the family.
Much like her famous husband, Susan Patterson is a bestselling author herself.
Who is James Patterson’s wife Susan?
Sometime in 1997, James Patterson and Susan Olie tied the knot.
James and Susan began dating after meeting while working at the now-renamed advertising firm J Walter Thompson.
In 1979, before joining JWT, she received her art degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
Susan is an author who has published novels spanning a variety of genres such as gardening, lifestyle, health, and fiction.
Some of her most notable books are:
- Build your own pharmacy: 51 medicinal plants and how to use them
- Musings With a Cuppa – The Poetry of Tea
- Inflammation Erased: Naturally fight and reverse the harmful effects of inflammation in your body
- Tom and Irma: Memories of the 1950s
- Heart to Heart – Thoughtful moods for tea time
- unnoticed moments
In addition to their own separate works, Susan and James have also written many novels together.
On September 4, 2017, the author couple released their first in a series of children’s books entitled Big Words for Little Geniuses.
To promote the sequel to the aforementioned children’s novel, the couple stopped by The Today Show.
While discussing her trial with Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, Susan said, “It really wasn’t work, it was so much fun.”
“It was always my dream to write a children’s book since college, but I ended up going into advertising. Then luckily I met Jim.”
She continued, “I used to say to Jim, ‘You write for so many other age groups, why don’t you write for kids at a really young age?’ It was total collaboration.”
“It was a marriage of many things that I already love. It should also be fun for the person reading it with you.”
Do James and Susan have children?
In 1998, James and Susan welcomed their first and only child, a son named Jack.
Jack Patterson followed in his parents’ footsteps and became a writer too.
On May 1, 2017, the father-son duo released their first published work together, a children’s book titled Penguins of America.
In 2020, Jack graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in economics.
He is currently employed at Barclay’s Investment Bank as a Banking Analyst.
