Susan Adger, M.Ed, is a mother, former social worker, web designer, and fifth generation Floridian.  She’s the author of two humorous books about 1930s Florida, drawn from stories told by her grandma, including her debut novel, Seashells, Gator Bones, and the Church of Everlasting Liability. She also cowrote the memoir A Quiet Voice about Vietnam veteran Eugene Hairston and his struggle to overcome addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder, and homelessness.

In a few of her personal adventures, Susan has found fossils in the Peace River in Florida and on Rainbow Mountain in Alaska, tramped for two days through a Philippine jungle to get medical supplies to the natives, and gone zip-lining through the jungle canopy in Costa Rica. She’s sipped high tea at the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong, trekked to the remains of an ancient castle in the Czech Republic, and gone skydiving. She currently resides in Dunedin, Florida with her two cats, Jasper and Killer Girl.
