“There are about a million things I want to be when I grow up,” Suzanne Reisman wrote in a semi-autobiographical story when she was in fourth or fifth grade. “First of all, I want to be an author, second an advertiser, and third a baseball umpire.” Making good on her first interest, Suzanne earned an MFA in creative writing from the New School.
When not writing, Suzanne is neither an advertiser nor a baseball umpire. Instead, she puts her Master’s in Public Administration/Public Policy to good use by working with non-profit organizations in New York City. She enjoys Yiddish humor, House Hunters International, eating, wandering around cities, and sleeping.
Suzanne spent her formative years in a comfortable house across from the Edens Expressway in the Chicago suburbs, but now lives in Manhattan with her husband, her teddy bear, and the ghost of her 13 lb. pet rabbit. Unwilling to fully abandon her roots, she insists on calling soda “pop,” and sneakers “gym shoes.” A recovered Cubs fan, she now roots for the New York Mets.
