Susan J. Morris

Susan J. Morris is a fantasy editor and author, best known for her work editing Forgotten Realms novels, designing D&D for kids, and her work in the Practical Guide series.

Susan J. Morris has edited Forgotten Realms novels for twelve years now (half those years in house, the other half freelance), and she was delighted to be a 2012 Industry Insider Guest of Honor at Gen Con. In addition to editing, she designed D&D for kids, wrote a few books (including A Practical Guide to Wizardry and A Practical Guide to Dragon Magic), and wrote a critically acclaimed writing advice column for Amazon's Omnivoracious blog called "Writers Don't Cry."

When not reading, editing, or writing, Susan enjoys drinking ungodly amounts of coffee, dancing, playing video games, and working on her German language skills. She lives in rainy Seattle with her wonderful husband in a beautiful, strange house filled with plants. She has one cat (Nox), but her favorite animal has always been the jellyfish, and she holds a special fondness for all the ugliest creatures of the sea, like sea cucumbers.
