About the Author
The story told in Another Place Called Home is real. Susan DuMond lived at the Susquehanna Valley Children's Home for six years. She arrived at age eleven and aged out at eighteen. Susan holds a BA in Liberal Arts/Theatre from Bennington College in Vermont and a PhD from the University of Oregon in Educational Policy and Management. As a technical writer and information designer, Susan has written, edited, published and collaborated on more than 25 books. Susan's poetry has appeared in a number of publications, most recently in Jefferson Journal. Published stories include "The Visit," one of the top-ten memoirs to appear in Fish Anthology 2013 (Fish Publishing, Ireland) and "Lucille's Shoes," a finalist in a WOW-WomenOnWriting flash fiction contest. Soon to be published is "Life Interrupted" in Fear and Courage (Exisle Publishing, New Zealand). The author was one of the fortunate foster care kids. She hopes her story will help increase awareness of foster care youth and their needs, particularly those who are aging out.
