Susan hails from the great volunteer state of Tennessee, USA. After having worked in many interesting areas such as automotive technology, manufacturing, and management she earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Austin Peay State University.
Computers became an interest in 1992 with the purchase of a Tandy 2000. Years later, her interest in Linux was sparked by failed attempts to secure and stabilize Windows. After a few false starts, success and conversion was achieved in 2000 with Mandrake Linux 7.2. She never looked back. She tested many versions of Linux over the next few years and began writing about her experiences. Later she began writing professionally for popular Linux Websites and publications. Her hobbies include computer hardware, movies, and Linux gaming.
