Susan Warren Utley
Author of Leaving Lucy
Co-founder & Editor of Haunted Waters Press

Susan is an author, wife and mother living and writing in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. She is currently editing one of five novels and working on a short story anthology. Her prose and poetry appear in various print publications including The Untidy Season, An Anthology of Nebraska Women Poets from Backwaters Press, Introduction to Quincouplet from Diamond Point Press, and Daily Flash and Daily Frights from Pill Hill Press. When not writing, she enjoys working with textiles, photography, traveling, and spending time with her family and her muse, a feisty Jack Russell Terrier who occasionally answers to the name of Lucy. 

“Much to my parent’s dismay, I grew up telling everyone who would listen that I was adopted or switched at birth, neither of which was true. When asked why I made up such a story, I respond, “Maybe I just wanted a life less ordinary.” Or maybe it was just a sign that I would grow up to become a storyteller.

Sometime around the age of eight, I started writing. It began with a short essay about my true encounters with two houseflies by the names of Charlie and Freckles and continued with stories about an invisible blind cat who ran into furniture and a giant talking turtle who stalked me in the basement; all characters in my life less ordinary.

Now that I'm all grown up, my roles as daughter, sister, wife and mother have taught me that the unexpected twists and turns of real life are at the heart of every good story. Still, the child within embraces the origins of my writing and I never underestimate the power of a talking turtle.”
