The Wolffe Brothers

In January 2009, fellow writer Susi Lovell approached me with the idea of exchanging our short stories or chapters on the 15th of every month.  For over three years (with a few breaks for holidays), Susi and I have shared our work for feedback, line edits, questions and encouragement.  Our long distance exchange has kept me motivated, opened a door to all manner of discussions and resources, and allowed me to maintain contact with a very dear and generous friend. 

Originally from England, Susi lived and worked in Austria, Colombia, South Africa, and Australia before settling first in first Toronto and then in Montréal, Canada with her husband Mark and daughter Rebecca.

Susi was Artistic Director and choreographer of Groupe impuDance, a mixed-media dance theater performance company, and taught physical theater and movement to adults and students in schools and community centers. She has an MA in Contemporary Dance from the Université du Québec à Montréal.

Since a stint of writing on dance for the Montreal Gazette, she has become as obsessive a writer as she was a dancer. Her short stories teeter between reality and the fantastic and have appeared or are forthcoming in Grain, Fiddlehead, Metal Scratches, CAA’s 2011 Montreal Writers Anthology, Fiction Brigade and Blue Lake Review.  You can read Susi’s story “The Wolffe Brothers” in the new online magazine, Kudzu Review.  (See: http://kudzureview.com/ Issue 1:1, page 18).

Susi is an earth pond and anti-gravity yoga enthusiast and general worrier. She prefers not to cook except in emergencies but loves eating and is currently evaluating Montreal’s croissants aux amandes.  (I haven’t seen Susi since January 2009 but hope I will be able to benefit from this evaluation in the near future!)  She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Lesley University, Cambridge, MA.
