Suzanne Lahna
Founder, Editor, and Formatter

Suzanne founded the Quick Fox to meet the needs of those that were desperately underserved: the LGBTQ and neurodiverse writing communities. Skilled and schooled in all aspects of the editing process (including both Chicago and AP style), Suzanne is able to take on projects for every stage of editing, and any genre (no book too dark, no scene too spicy.) There are few calls more important to our founder than showing the ropes to new voices in publishing – first time writers are their specialty (though Suzanne is no stranger to picking up projects mid-series either.) They have six years experience as an editor, working with publishing houses, NYT bestselling authors, and companies of all sizes. Armed with a B.A. in English and a long history of employment throughout the publishing landscape, Suzanne is here to make your next book your best book. Suzanne is currently taking on new clients; their next availability is May 2022. They are a proud member of the EFA.

Suzanne resides in a historic apartment in Worcester, MA. An advocate for all things chronic illness, Suzanne lives with chronic migraines, which cause both depression and anxiety, and has also been recently diagnosed with ADHD. They have begun blogging on the unique experience of balancing chronic migraines with a publishing career; you can read all about it an

A proud member of the ace spectrum community, Suzanne also identifies as androgynous, going by they/them pronouns. They are also the author of the Bulletproof Spy, an LGBT Cold War era paranormal espionage series. For more information about Suzanne’s self-published work, visit
