Susan Gabriel grew up in the archetypal American South, playing in the shade of mimosa trees and catching lightning bugs as the heat waned on long summer evenings. If given a choice, she would have lived on banana popsicles and when not in school, spent most days exploring the woods around her home.
Later in life Susan became a professional musician and played many venues in Charleston, SC, including Piccolo Spoleto and one gig that took place on a 300 ft. sailboat where she was situated below in the hold. She has yet to get her sea legs back.
She became a licensed marriage and family therapist, in part to understand the strange array of characters in her Appalachian gene pool. Yet ultimately closed her successful counseling practice, and moved with her two daughters to Asheville, NC where she did dream work with a Jungian analyst and began to write poetry, paint with acrylics and found her true love of writing fiction.
With her daughters launched into the world, Susan moved to Colorado for three years, where she explored the wild mysticism of the Rocky Mountain landscape before returning to the South with renewed appreciation. She lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.
