Susan Stocker


Writing since I was a child growing up in Long Beach, California, I’ve always enjoyed making people laugh. I heard “you should be a writer” starting in grade school. Many careers later, which included graphic design, photography and social work, I have finally come full circle back to the writer phase and I love it.
I live in Claremont, California with my partner Jan, and a variety of pets on our one third acre.
We enjoy frequent international travel and are both avid photographers. We volunteer at Crossroads which is a program for woman coming out of prison. I lead a therapeutic writing group and Jan is a cooking coach.
