About Me:

Hi, I’m Susan and I’m a writer.

I have been scribbling novels, poetry, and ranting essays since I was in middle school. Why stop now?

My goal for 2022 is to be prolific, so here you will find poems and short stories as I try to prove Ray Bradbury wrong. He said you can’t write 52 bad stories. Challenge accepted! Many of my stories are my way of world-building for my YA novels, The Time Ranger Trilogy. So stay tuned if apprehending rogue time travelers is your jam.

(Yes, that is a stock photo. That is not my arm. And I only drink my coffee black. )

The best hygiene for beginning writers or intermediate writers is to write a hell of a lot of short stories. If you can write one short story a week—it doesn’t matter what the quality is to start, but at least you’re practicing, and at the end of the year you have 52 short stories, and I defy you to write 52 bad ones. Can’t be done. At the end of 30 weeks or 40 weeks or at the end of the year, all of a sudden a story will come that’s just wonderful.
