A California native, Suzanne served in the Peace Corps in Colombia before moving to Santiago, Chile in 1972 to marry her boyfriend, Santiago. She explores how this experience has shaped her life in her memoir Marrying Santiago. She admits to being a tree-hugger, avid reader, nature writer, talker to stray dogs and cats, gardener, CNN news junkie, bird watcher, lover of storms and laughter and doting granny. Before turning to writing, she worked as a teacher of learning disabled children. A member of Santiago writers, her essays have been published in The Christian Science Monitor, California Magazine, the Marin Independent Journal, Nature Writing and Persimmon Tree.
