Writing Experience:

In 1995 Susan began writing novels, short fiction, and poetry. Since then her work has been published in more than forty literary journals and anthologies. Her novel Southern Fried Lies was published in August 2012 by Archer Hill. It was funded in part by a grant from the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency. Her second book, A Closet Full of Masks, was published in 2015.

Prior to 1995, Susan wrote nonfiction articles (news stories, features, and interviews) for more than one hundred publications—state, regional, and national newspapers and magazines. She covered a broad range of topics from health and medicine to psychology and parenting.

Over the years, Susan has received seventeen honors and awards for her fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. She's especially proud of the prize she received for her interview with playwright Tennessee Williams, her first piece to be published in a national literary journal (New Orleans Review). For that interview Susan was awarded First Place Mark of Excellence from the national Society of Professional Journalists. "To this day I have no idea who submitted it to their contest!" Susan says.
