An As The Eraser Burns Goodbye to Susan Detwiler

Bummer news: The lovely Susan Detwiler is leaving our blogging team, sniff! With over ten years of volunteer work for our SCBWI MD/DE/WV planning committee and nearly two years with the blog, she has certainly been an amazing asset to our region as well as an inspiration to others. Those who attended our last Write-In/Sketch-In also know how dedicated Susan is to helping other aspiring writers and illustrators, seeing as how she spent the entire time sharing her knowledge with others. She will be dearly missed, but I’m also excited for what she has in store for the future, meaning more awesome books!

To celebrate her time here on As The Eraser Burns, here’s a collection of her best posts:

About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane still haunt her at night.) At the age of thirty, she pursued her dream of being a writer. Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
