At four Susan May decided she was a writer. But for 46 years she suffered from a common writer’s disease—life-gets-in-the-way-osis. Discovering a cure in 2010, (write a page a day no matter what) she has since churned out multiple short stories—many becoming award winners and appearing in U.S, U.K. and Australian publications.
She lives in Perth, Western Australia, with her best first reader, her husband, and their two young boys. Her mind, however, ventures constantly into the dark crevices where all speculative writers create their strange worlds.
Enthralled with any form of storytelling, Susan scored the dream job as chief film reviewer for U.S. Suspense Magazine. You can find her many times a week in a darkened cinema with her hand in

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

I've read it so many times. Haven't read it for about a decade, so hopefully it will still stand up. I think so, though, for a mystery. It's really very clever. Great idea to ask a question on your friend send. Love it. xx
