Of Golems, Short Stories, and a Mini-Memoir
"Humannequin & Other Writings": Popular Birmingham author releases third book.
The short story "Humannequin"
"The creepy mannequins and overall eerie ambience of the abandoned building was the inspiration for Humannequin,"
Other highlights include "The Woods of Io" which explores a cat's take on the intricacies of this world and details her experiences in the afterlife. In another direction, "Belles Lettres to my Damn-Self" is an abbreviated memoir recounting the author's insights and experiences from pre-birth to her late 20s.
"It was tough to write," Susan Marie says. "Many times, I decided this little memoir was a bad idea. Digging around in my psyche was painful but I'm glad I stuck with it. Aside from being personally cathartic, maybe my numerous misadventures can help someone else."
Susan Marie Shuman is also the author of "Gutter Ball: A Collection of Short Stories," and "Eddie's Underwear & Other Shorts". Her books are available in paperback and Kindle formats through Amazon.com.
