Susan DeFreitas has never been able to choose between fantasy and reality, so she lives and writes in both. Born and raised in rural west Michigan, she spent fourteen years in the high country of Arizona before moving to Portland, Oregon, where she serves as an independent editor; her work has been featured in over 30 magazines, journals, and anthologies. She enjoys mysterious books, big trees, strange weather, unorthodox educational institutions, thinking machines, and sketchy characters.
Her fiction chapbook, Pyrophitic (ELJ Publications), is available in both print and digital format online. You can get it from the publisher as well as from Amazon. Please consider following her there as well as on Goodreads.
You’ll find her short work online at places like Quaint and Litreactor; recent stories in print are available from Weber–The Contemporary West and Clackamas Literary Review. She holds an MFA (from Pacific University), but hopes you won’t hold it against her.
