Susan Maki can be found these days reading books and working on a fiction manuscript between her home in Saint Paul, Minnesota and a newly decked out riverside “she shed” in Marquette, Michigan. Career writing took over the first four decades of life after acquiring a B.A. in Library Science. Writing for fun was always on the bucket list and began soon after retiring from a profession in Nonprofit Management in 2019. When not absorbed in creating stories, Susan runs, travels, indulges in home projects and spends time with eight grandchildren.
