20 Questions with Susan McCauley
As avid readers, we at Cursed Dragon Ship Publishing have grown bored with the questions in “respectable” interviews. What about the really important ones, like what is their least favorite chore or their favorite flavor of ice cream? This week we’ve booked Susan McCauley.
Susan McCauley is an award-winning writer / producer of paranormal, fantasy, and horror films and fiction for adults, young adults, and middle grade audiences and readers. Susan fell in love with writing, theater, and film when she was eight-years-old. That passion inspired her to receive a B.A. in Radio-Television with a minor in Theater from the University of Houston, an M.F.A. in Professional Writing from the University of Southern California (USC), and a M.A. in Text & Performance from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and King’s College in London. Susan also studied acting at Playhouse West with Robert Carnegie and Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day) in Los Angeles.
Susan has several short stories published, one of which, “The Cask”, was made into an award winning short film. “The Cask” was published in the Camden Park Press anthology Quoth the Raven, which won Best Anthology of 2018 in multiple reader polls. In addition to her short stories, Susan has one novella and four novels in print, as well as a feature length film in development. When asked why she writes spooky stories, Susan gives credit to her parents: “When I was three-years-old, my mom and dad took me on Disney’s Haunted Mansion ride. I was terrified. Then, as soon as we got off, I begged them to take me again and again!”
Susan loves travel, animals, movies, theatre, taekwondo, and books (of course!) She lives in Houston, Texas with her husband, son, and three crazy cats.
