Texas native Susan Mary Malone has published two novels, co-authored four nonfiction books, and sold more short stories than she can count, including her recent award-winning short-story collection. Her happiness is fiction, wine, and Labrador Retrievers, the latter of which she raises, trains, and shows, and of course, reading famous Texas authors (and the not-so famous too!).

In her own words, Susan’s Mission is to always live a blessed life in this world of words, sharing my love of writing and literature, my belief in women and their abounding strength, and encouraging readers to follow their passion and purpose, while introducing them to the best Texas female authors, who exemplify all of the above.  

And, her Vision is to pursue the ideas and projects that encourage personal and community success, with an earnest commitment to building bridges that keep women connected and following their dreams. I believe to the depth of my bones in peace through culture, which is often found in the best books about Texas.
