Author Bio
Susie Duncan Sexton
Susie Duncan Sexton grew up in a very small town, Columbia City, Indiana. After graduating twelfth in her
class at Ball State University (winning the first ever John R. Emens award for "most outstanding senior"),
she returned to her hometown where she has worked as a teacher, a publicist and a health lecturer. She
currently writes a weekly column for a popular local blog, "Talk of the Town".Describing her column,
Susie says, "I willingly share nostalgic trips to the past as I have now achieved such an old age that no
one remains who can question the authenticity of my memory of places, people and events that were very
much never what they were cracked up to be."Always an observer of events and human traits, Susie
Duncan Sexton offers without apology her thoughts and observations as they are and once were, and
fitting her persona into pigeonholes is impossible. "I have searched for the "We of Me" since toddler days
and have always come up wanting," she says, "though I trust that in my next life I shall finally have
figured out how to make this world a better place full of tolerance and inclusiveness and understanding for
all forms of life."
