Susan theorizes that if her family didn't evolve straight out of the red clay of Warren County, then they came over on the Mayflower, hiked straight there, and haven't left since. Either way, her family--on both sides--have lived in this beautiful rural area of North Carolina until her parents' generation. Thus she's related to just about the whole county--many in more ways than one.
Perhaps craving something a wee bit different, Susan married a Turkish doctoral student and moved to Turkey for a few years. Now back in North Carolina, Susan, her husband and two kids still live in the country where the deer and the squirrels play...though not Warren County.
Susan is published in both fiction and non-fiction through novels, short stories, and essays. Her next release--Helen Leoda and the Scepter of Isis, novel one in the Helen Leoda fantasy series--will be out in the fall of 2005 from Wizarding World Press.
