Susan Sofayov is a Pittsburgh based writer. She’s married to a wonderful, but completely unsupportive husband who feels she should focus less on writing and more time on her “real job” running the family real estate management company. She has three out-of-the-nest children and an aging small white dog.
She has a BA in English Literature and Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh and an MA in Teaching from Chatham University.
Her debut novel DEFECTIVE chronicles a young woman’s battle to live an ordinary life while struggling with undiagnosed bipolar 2 disorder. Her newest work THE KIDDUSH LADIES explores friendship, forgiveness and self-destruction. It was released by Black Opal Books in December. Her work in progress takes the reader from Thailand to Israel, and she has no ideas whatsoever for a title.
She loves meeting new people by attending book group meetings. Offer her a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and she’ll be happy to talk about either book with your Pittsburgh area group. If your group is outside of Pittsburgh, she’ll pour her own cup of coffee and meet you via Skype. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, Susan suffers from an acute fear of commas and is dependent on a cadre of writing friends to help her put them in their proper place. None of those friends previewed this blog—forgive the comma errors.
