Susan Abel



SUSAN ABEL has had a passion for writing, second only to her passion for horses, since she was a child growing up in the Detroit area. With writing assignments becoming her favorite projects in school, she completed her first novel at the age of seventeen, a story about a girl and a horse, of course.

Following a twenty-plus-year career as a professional horse trainer and riding instructor in the mid-West, Rockies and Southeast, Susan returned to school to earn a degree in journalism at the age of forty as a single mom with two girls. Following graduation, she worked several years as a beat reporter and feature writer for various newspapers as well as for a private university group. Once her girls were grown, she returned to her passions: instructing with her own riding school again while writing “Through the Mist.” Ten years later, she is retired from riding instruction and training and is focusing on her writing.

With “Through the Mist” and “Into the Fire,” the first two books of her Two Ponies Trilogy completed, Susan is currently working on the third book of the series, “From the Darkness,” due out by the end of 2020.

Having lived a diverse and well-traveled life, Susan has a broad expanse of life experiences to draw from, enabling her to flesh out characters, describe locations and understand the human condition in such a way her stories come to life in the imaginations of her readers. She loves to read, draw, ride and show her horses, travel on adventures with her husband and go on long hikes with their dogs.
