|| According to a high school vocation test, Susan Scott-Stevens was suited for work as a forest ranger, college professor, medium, or spy. Merging those career options, she became a cultural anthropologist, which unsurprisingly enough, led her to become a story teller. Her work as an anthropologist took her from Kalimantan in Indonesia to the uranium mines of Gallup, New Mexico. The Flute Player, her first novel, won an award at the Southwest Writer’s Conference in the category of historical fiction. She is also the author of an award-winning short story for ethnographic fiction, The Djinn Tree. Susan currently lives, writes and tells stories in Boulder, Colorado.
