Susan Delaney started life in the Midwest but moved east in early adulthood, first to Bucks County, Pennsylvania and then across the Delaware River to New Jersey. She has a passion for many things, including art (her degree is in Art History), travel (at least *being* in new places, rather than the flying involved in getting to them), ice hockey (lately just watching, but once also playing--though never very well), listening to music (folk, classical, and many other genres), and meeting interesting people (and most people are interesting once you get them telling their own personal stories). She has had a number of jobs, including strange ones in her youth - like ice painting and pickle-packing - and some less fascinating ones involving editing and proofreading and even typing (with two fingers - the way she has written her novels).
