Susan Spillman, a former staff writer and columnist with the Life section of USA Today, these days shares a home office with her son, Jordan, 15, and daughter, Lily, 10. While that means she doesn't get much writing done after 3 p.m. or on weekends, the set-up does keep her up on the latest from the trenches of both elementary and high school.
A journalism graduate of Pepperdine University back in the day when big cities had two thriving newspapers, Susan's work has appeared in dozens of publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, TV Guide, Smart Money, The New York Daily News, People and Cosmopolitan.
Married for 19 years to media executive Jeff Rowe, Susan enjoys chronicling her weekly observations of life in the burbs, realizing that "these days are precious and fleeting fast."
