Arrgh, Mateys!

Avast, me hearties, I wish I could speak pirate, or at least Air Pirate like my friend Adam Heine. I did "go pirate" once on Facebook, but had to switch back when I couldn't quite bring myself to "Blabber to yer mates."


While I may be FAIL at pillaging and burning, I do spend a lot of time writing about adventures, mostly for middle grade (ages 8-12) and young adult (ages 13-99) readers. My first novel, Life, Liberty, and Pursuit, is a teen love story that was published this year by Omnific Publishing, a small publisher. I'm getting ready to push my middle grade dystopian science fiction novel out of the nest and have a few more stories in the docks.

I'm excited to join the crew here at Scribbler's Cove, and will post somewhat randomly about the craft of writing, adventures in publishing, and anything science-fictiony that catches my eye. Also, probably cats and steampunk. I hear we have a cabin girl, so there may be snacks as well ...

I'm on a wee blog-cation until September, but I look forward to seeing what my crew-mates are up to then!

p.s. it's not too early to plan for Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept. 19th, 2010).


  1. Ahoy, Sue! Great to hear from you. We'll be lookin' forward to swappin' tales with ye.

  2. Shiver me timbers, Susan, I'll have to brush up on me Pirate accent. Congratulations on yer book! We'll be watchin' fer more from ye.

  3. Ahoy! I need to automate my pirate-ness, so I can get these comments in a timely manner, aye! :)


What be on yer mind?
