Susan was four when she decided writing would be her life, packed a bag and marched down the road looking for school. But for forty-six years she suffered from life-gets-in-the-way-osis, until 2010 when she decided to write a page a day. This discipline grew into an addictive habit that has since borne international best-selling novels, and dozens of International award winning short stories and novellas.

Her childhood reading diet consisted of Edgar Allen Poe, O'Henry, and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, plus horror comics like Tales From the Crypt. Anything out of this world like The Twilight Zone and Outer Limits had her glued to the television much to the concern of her parents. Inspired by these classics, she pens tales that are simply about the story and the characters.
