Susan Rogers lives in St. Pete Beach, Florida, retired from a Social Work career in Massachusetts. Retirement was a catalyst for beginning her life-long ambition to write. A genealogist with forty years’ experience and a practicing psychic, she often twists these themes into her writing. She has previously published articles, newsletters and anthologies related to genealogy and family history research. In 2018, she self-published her first book related to her own psychic experiences. In 2020, she began her professional writing career with publication of short stories and poetry in several anthologies as well as short fiction published in online and print literary and genre magazines.
