Susan has loved reading for as long as she can remember. It didn’t take long for her to realize that she also enjoyed creating her own stories as much as reading the creations of others. She loved to daydream as a child, and sometimes claimed her “characters” as actual friends if it meant getting her way with her parents. Her family always encouraged her to write, but she didn’t think she would ever be good enough. Still, when facing high stress times, she found herself in front of the computer creating exciting new realities. Unfortunately, life always got in the way, and she didn’t finish any of her stories until recently. She now finds herself with a very rough draft of a novel and the unnerving task of editing it into something she wouldn’t be horrified to have anyone read. As she attacks this project, she is amazed at how much she loves some of her story, but wonders when the second-grader snuck in and wrote other parts.
With the encouragement and support of her amazing family, Susan has been given the opportunity to write full-time. While the idea of being a full-time writer is daunting, she is embracing the opportunity. Along with her writing buddy Karen DeLabar, she is riding a rollercoaster of emotions from excitement to sheer terror and back several times a day, but is committed to her new profession.
Susan is the loving wife of Pookie, the greatest husband in the world, who not only allows her to stay home and write all day, he encourages it. She also has an adorable shi-tzu/poodle pup named Cami who seems to think she is a little person, and has just about mastered walking on only her two back legs.
When not writing or spending time with Pookie, Susan can be found with family and friends, at a community theatre rehearsal, or relaxing with a cup of coffee or a glass of scotch and a great book.
