Joey needing attention_edited.jpg

Susan Wingate writes about big trouble in small towns. She lives with her husband on an island off the coast of Washington State where, against State laws, she feeds the wildlife because she wants them to follow her. Her ukulele playing is, "Coming along," as her Sitto used to say. 


Susan's eight-time award-winning novel, How the Deer Moon Hungers was chosen by The International Pulpwood Queens and Timber Guys Book Club as their October 2022 Official Book Selection of the Month. 

Susan has an insatiable appetite for online word games and puzzles. She thinks it might be obsessive-compulsive but is fine with that.

This is Joey, Susan's new dog. He's a rescue with great reading skills.

Susan’s poetry, short stories, and essays have been published in journals such as the Virginia Quarterly Review, the Superstition Review, and Suspense Magazine, as well as several others.


Susan is represented by Chip MacGregor.


She is also a proud member of PENAmerica, Int'l Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and Women's Fiction Writers Association
