Suzi Wizowaty at play in Vermont

Suzi Wizowaty lives in Burlington, Vermont, with her partner of thirty-five years, a dog and two cats. She writes novels for adults and children, leads occasional book-and-writing programs in prisons for the Vermont Humanities Council and teaches writing part-time at St. Michael's College. In 2008, she was elected to the Vermont House of Representatives, where she especially loved serving on the judiciary committee. In 2014 she decided not to run again in order to focus on the non-profit she founded in 2013, Vermonters for Criminal Justice Reform. Her latest novel, THE RETURN OF JASON GREEN, will come out from Fomite Press in Oct., 2014.
