Susan is a native of Atlanta having grown up in Sandy Springs. Her banking career spans over 40 years and includes retail, mortgage, private, and business banking. She currently works with State Bank & Trust in Buckhead.
She began writing her first novel about three years ago. She completed “A Season For Living” in 2010 and self-published with iUniverse. The novel’s genre is Romantic Historical Fiction and follows the lives of four very strong women from the late 1940’s to 2000 in Atlanta. You will take a walk back to the Atlanta that we remember so fondly. Each of the women has her own struggles, but the bond of family and friendship provides the love and support they all need to survive and triumph over tragedy and hardship. Susan’s love for interior design is evident in the book with detailed descriptions of the homes they lived in and the places they visited. Many of the homes and places in the book are historic homes and places in Atlanta, Roswell, Charleston, Charlottesville, Williamsburg and Kennebunkport. The book is available at Barnes & Noble on line, Amazon, and iUniverse.
Because of the wonderful responses she has received from her readers and the encouragement they provided, she is currently writing a sequel to “A Season for Living.” This book continues to follow the lives of these strong women and you will meet new people who will add to the inspirational story.
Susan has five children and six grandchildren. She lives in a North Atlanta suburb with her husband, Don. She is a member of Johns Creek Baptist Church in Alpharetta where she is an ordained deacon and has taught adult Sunday School for over twenty years.
