Besides being a freelance writer, I am also a paralegal and a notary public. I have worked for many years as a paralegal investigating cases, making sense of facts, and writing a plethora of legal documents for attorneys. My paralegal career has helped me to hone my analytical and writing skills.
Stroking the pen is my first love. In the nineties, I published poetry in small press magazines and won first place and honorable mentions in short story contests. Before home computers were commonplace, I designed and wrote a church newsletter.
In the recent past, I have engaged in freelance content writing and wrote for the REAP Record, a newsletter for paralegals, for two years. One of my legal articles has also been published in the Bar Journal, a publication for attorneys.
My short stories have been published in four anthologies and one magazine. I am also working on two psychological thriller novels, and I plan on compiling a short story collection of my published and unpublished stories.
Besides writing, I enjoy creating digital artwork, acrylic painting, reading, gardening, and spending time with my husband and our dog and cat. I have also been working on my family history for several years. I got married in 2019, so most of my writings at this website are under my former name, Susan Littlefield.
