Sue Knott is the doting mother of a teen son and the long-suffering wife of an equally long-suffering (but much crankier) husband. She has also been "mom" to a bunny (now deceased) and an extremely energetic pooch.She has had a varied and successful career as an advertising copywriter. She has lived in Pittsburgh, PA; NYC; LaCrosse, WI; Scranton, PA; and currently makes her home in upstate NY. Occasionally she tries her hand at stand-up comedy, though she is in complete and total terror whenever she takes the stage. Ms. Knott knows she must do some wild and whacky things to promote her books and is totally dreading putting herself "out there" in the public eye. She asks everyone to please try to overlook her bulges and wrinkles. (Sun damage from the '70s...who knew?)Sue is an avid gardener and wishes she had time to pursue craft projects (or even just to clean her house). She also desperately wishes for you to post reviews and tell all your friends about her book(s).Sue Knott sincerely hopes that the author of the book that inspired her parody does not in any way take personal offense. Sue offers her lampooning with great admiration for the empire said author has built and with the affection she believes is due every human being. (Truth be told, Sue's sarcastic wit is much sharper when wielded against her own husband and she hopes to stay in his good graces as well.)Sue has a sweet tooth. She wears a size 9 shoe. She collects art glass. She recycles. She sewed her own wedding gown (big mistake). She revels in the outdoors and longs to be on the beach. She prattles on at the keyboard. She is a safety nutcase. And she loves to Zumba.
