My name is Susan Rooke, and I live on a square of green, peaceful country outside of Thorndale, Texas, not too far from Austin. I write poetry and fiction, and you can find selections of my published writings, along with information about my two fantasy novels, on the “Works” page.
My husband Glen runs a small cattle operation on our place, and our favorite relaxation in the evenings is to sit outside watching them go about their cow business. They can be surprisingly hilarious.
I take way too many pictures of sunsets, sunrises, the moon, the scenery and our lake (see the “Photos” page), and have to replace too many exclamation points with periods. I value goofiness probably more than I should. Thanks to Jules Verne, since childhood I’ve had a deep-seated belief in Architeuthis dux, the Giant Squid. Proof was a long time coming, but the vindication is sweet! Still trying to dredge up proof of lake monsters, but so far I’ve caught only catfish. In the meantime I write fiction about angels and demons, monsters, faeries and dragons.
They’re as real as you want them to be.
