ABOUT SUSAN WROBLE

  • Writing and volunteering are my two main passions. I started writing for the local newspaper in high school, and still have all the letters home from my first job, as a high school English, math and science teacher in Samoa with the Peace Corps. My jobs in engineering after my return from Samoa soon changed from straight engineering to technical writing, on subjects ranging from electro-magnetic storms in the skies to submarine sonar systems in the seas. 

    The writing and volunteering threads have continued through my life. Our family started raising service dogs, and then began volunteering with therapy dogs at Colorado Children’s Hospital. I have led a support group for parents and caregivers of Twice Exceptional students (highly gifted kids with learning differences) for the past 15 years. I volunteer at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and write for the Colorado Encyclopedia and the Denver Rose Society. Currently, I am serving as Co-Regional Advisor for the fabulous Rocky Mountain Chapter of SCBWI.  

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • Maybe it’s my background in engineering, but I love processes! I think in terms of flowcharts, when one things leads to another and then, hopefully, to a great outcome. That’s one of the reasons I am so drawn to nonfiction, especially when it illuminates a complex system and breaks it down into understanding parts.
