About the Author

Writing has been Susan’s profession and hobby for many years, since she began as a reporter for The Macon News, writing both news stories and features.
Since childhood, her writing has won awards—for an essay in grammar school, for poetry in college and for nonfiction, fiction and poetry at writers’ conferences.
Professional memberships include the Southeastern Writers Association, the South Carolina Writers Workshop, the Atlanta Writers Club and the Georgia Writers Association.
Susan has written a variety of articles that have been published in such magazines as The Georgia Journal, the Georgia Forestry magazine, Georgia Wildlife (of the Georgia Wildlife Federation), the national magazine Deerhunters United, and anthologies such as the Petigru Review, Catfish Stew and Milledgeville Tapestry.
While at MIT, she edited the first research papers on telemetry and lasers. At the CDC, she wrote the guidebook used to eradicate smallpox worldwide, edited research articles written for medical journals, prepared writing guidelines for both professional and secretarial employees at the Centers for Disease Control, and wrote guidebooks that have been used internationally.
Daughter of college professors, she was born in Milledgeville, Georgia, in 1936. Home was 3,000 acres and a plantation house that survived a visit by Sherman’s army. Cattle rustling, moonshining and murder provide the background for her nonfiction as well as fiction.
