Susan is a semi-retired graphic designer with a life-long love of art, painting, literature, and fiction—reading and writing.
She wrote her first chapter book at 10 years old (called Mopsy and Me) which her grandmother typed up and submitted to Highlights Magazine, garnering Susan’s very first rejection letter.
As an adult, Susan took quite a few evening classes and seminars at the Stanford Continuing Studies Creative Writing program, where she learned from fantastic writers including Ryan Harty, Julie Orringer, Eric Puchner, Adam Johnson and many others. She was also accepted into the UC Davis-sponsored Writers Workshop at Tomales Bay, and had encouragement from Glimmertrain Press by making their Top 25 list of 2008’s Spring Fiction Open, and the Top 50 of their 2009 Best Start.
She has one unpublished novel and many short stories under her belt, with another novel underway.
