In another life, Susan cleaned funeral homes and vacuumed around the dead. An unspoken element of respect existed within that job; as the intimate invitation into people’s lives is never taken lightly. Susan’s work has appeared in The Sun Magazine, Simply Haiku, elimae, .Cent Magazine, Rain Taxi Review of Books and Water~Stone Review. Her paintings have shown in the New England Review, Catamaran Literary Reader, Mud Season Review and The Hopper. The Pond (Green Writers Press 2019), a book of painted poetry, was done in collaboration with writer Richard Jarrette.
