Hi, I'm Susan. It's nice to meet you!
I write and I mom. I mom and I write.
I'm an autism mom, soccer mom, rugby mom, and stepmom and, when I'm not mom-ing, I'm writing. Mostly humor. I like to laugh but what I really like is making other people laugh!
So, where's my funny stuff?
You can find lots of my humor pieces right here on Medium, in publications like MuddyUm, Doctor Funny, and QuickTalk. If you're a humor writer, you need to connect with Susan Brearley, Michael Burg, and Kiki Walter, as they run those terrific publications. (Just tell 'em Suzy sent you!)
and Little Old Lady Comedy. It's also in a newsletter I publish twice a week called Susan's Funny Stuff.
Oh, and back in 2008 and 2011, I wrote two humorous memoirs: Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl and 500 Acres and No Place to Hide, More Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl.
Speaking of memoir
I still write some on occasion. If you're a memoir writer, you need to submit to The Memoirist. It is THE publication out here for memoirists.
When I'm not writing about my kids, my anxiety, my anxiety's anxiety, empty supermarket shelves, annoying emails from Amazon, and people who inadvertently make porn, I'm editing the magazines I'm responsible for, binge-watching far too many shows on Netflix, reading, and giving the occasional TEDx Talk.
Yes, my hair was a lot shorter then and no, my topic was not humor.
Thanks for reading and nice to meet you!
