About the Author

Susie Duncan Sexton grew up in a very small town, Columbia City, Indiana. After graduating twelfth in her class at Ball State University (winning the first ever John R. Emens award for "most outstanding senior"), she returned to her hometown where she has worked as a teacher, a publicist, a museum curator, and a health lecturer.

She currently writes monthly columns "Old Type Writer" for a popular local blog Talk of the Town and "Homeward Angle" for the Columbia City Post and Mail newspaper. She has been a frequent contributor to the literary journal "Moronic Ox," and her poetry was selected by poet Charles Michael Madigan and by Wayne State professor M.L. Liebler to be featured in "Poetic Resonance Imaging: Behind the Door." She also has been featured in Our USA, Writing Raw, Where Writers Write, and InD'tale magazines. Her first book Secrets of an Old Typewriter is currently available as a paperback (as well as download formats) at,, and The follow-up Misunderstood Gargoyles & Overrated Angels will be released October 31. More information about the book including an excerpt and pre-orders is available at and

Describing her work, Susie says, "I willingly share nostalgic trips to the past as I have now achieved such an old age that no one remains who can question the authenticity of my memory of places, people and events that were very much never what they were cracked up to be."

Always an observer of events and human traits, Susie Duncan Sexton offers without apology her thoughts and observations as they are and once were, and fitting her persona into pigeonholes is impossible. "I have searched for the "We of Me" since toddler days and have always come up wanting," she says, "though I trust that in my next life I shall finally have figured out how to make this world a better place full of tolerance and inclusiveness and understanding for all forms of life."

Excellent 2nd book - a humorous, thoughtful look at growing up in a small town in the 1950s and1960s and how those experiences shaped the author's view of the 21st century. A wonderful ride - highly recommended.
