I’m Susan and I live with my husband, daughter, son, and overly licky dog in North Carolina. I worked in the public schools for several years as a speech-language pathologist but have since shifted my focus to writing and editing. I love character-driven stories for children and adults that have a lot of heart. I nurture the moss around our house, and I’m hoping that in the epic battle of moss vs. grass in our yard the moss will ultimately triumph.
This is me reading, age nine. I often sat in front of our refrigerator on cold winter mornings because it was a gas refrigerator and quite a bit of heat came out of the bottom! I was lucky to grow up in a house with a lot of books, in a town with a small but wonderful library. The library was located in a historic house, and has since been converted into a museum. But it still smells exactly as it did throughout my childhood.
