About Susan de la Vergne

I wrote my first short story when I was eight, a tale of cowboys and rustlers in the old west, of horse stealing and shoot-outs by the corral. I made copies and gave them to our neighbors who (very kindly) read it. My career as a self-publishing writer had begun.

Then I went on to do what writers do--read, write, and major in English in college, which led me to a long career in… information technology. But that's another story. Today, I'm a writer and an editor. I especially like to write about the workplace because there's so little fiction about work, and yet so much happens at work besides work!

Although I hover over a keyboard a lot, I also teach ESL, meditation, and modern Buddhism. I live in Los Angeles, which is my home town. I've always been grateful to this city because it's a place where people dream big, and when you're surrounded by dreams, you're more likely to have some of your own.

Review by: Lynn Johnson on July 25, 2017 : (no rating)
As a father of two young women who have been on their own for several years, and having been separated from them by continents for extended periods, I could relate easily. Susan’s book gave me some space to think about relationships and happiness. It did that without imposing a model and still providing real issues for reflection. Then, like other good novels, when I read the last page it left me wanting more. But I had to reflect only a minute before realizing that more will come from within. Thanks Susan, if we’re lucky you will choose to share your happiness with us again.
