About Susan Farris.

Thank you for wanting to learn more about me!

I’m a Southern author and poet with a passion for local stories and local voices. You will see many of my favorite places make appearances in my stories and poems.

In a previous life, I was a full-time marketing manager while working on my MFA in Creative Writing with Lindenwood University. I also have a background in editing and tutoring other writers. 

My debut work The Gravedigger’s Guild, a Southern Gothic novel, is now available online wherever books are sold. My first collection of poetry, Flooding the Delta, an experiments with the Thai Nirat, will be available soon. 

When I’m not wrangling words on the page, I can be found gardening, playing board games, or snuggled up with my three cats and two dogs appreciating my husband’s amazing cooking skills. #cheflevel
