Susan Thatcher was born in New Hampshire and raised in Vermont, graduating from the University of Vermont (including a stint in Salisbury, South Australia as an exchange student starting in January 1982. She hates winter that much). She contributed occasional articles to UVM’s newspaper, the Vermont Cynic. Susan has also contributed to Morning Edition on NPR (they read her letter on the air.), the Boca Raton News and http://www.dognewsteam.com, a news parody website. Susan also earned a Juris Doctor from Franklin Pierce Law Center.
She wrote “These Foolish Things” because she wanted to see stories about people older than their twenties having lives and dealing with realistic issues. Liz Gardner and Ty Hadley (named for two towns in Massachusetts) could be your next door neighbors. Or Liz and her friend Millie could be your new best friends.
She is adding to the story of “These Foolish Things” and “At Last”. And writing other stuff. Other kinds of stuff.
