I want to lie within the embrace of bygone days, of memories bittersweet, too gentle to let go, yet rise with the sunlit morning for I know not what the future holds. Susan Cobb Beck


Background Information

About the Author:

I grew up amid a family descended from a long line of storytellers on both the maternal and paternal sides of my family. I could sit for hours a listening to those stories told at night after all the chores were finished and supper was over, and whilst I was listening, I would be concocting my own stories and journeys of these mysterious people. My ancestors of whom I had never met, those that died many, many years before my birth, but somehow, I felt as though I had known them personally, sat and talked with each of them about their life; each given a personality and a face, from the descriptive storytelling ability of the storyteller who sat before me.
My name is Susan Cobb Beck, and I am a storyteller too. One who prefers to tell her stories written in ink and printed upon the pages of a manuscript to share with all of those around me; those who enjoy journeying into another world; a world that makes us forget about our troubles, a mysterious world that lies between the pages of a book.
Journey with me every chance you get. I know that you will enjoy the vacation from the everday hustle and bustle that abounds in our everyday lives.

 

 

Susan C Beck (born: April, 1955 in Mobile Co, Alabama as Susan Pauline Cobb, daughter of Harold L Cobb and Audrey Powell Cobb) an American novelist, essayist, poet, storyteller & family historian. Most of her work is fiction, based around historical events, she sometimes reaches back through the years, to pluck one of her colorful ancestors, to use as a basis for her books, which are usually fact based, laced with a vivid imagination. She grew up in the small flower nursery town of Semmes, AL. Located just outside the Mobile city limits. She attended Semmes elementary and middle schools, Mary G Montgomery, High School. She has an Associates degree, from Capps College and graduated as a Registered Medical Assistant. She worked as a medical assistant and as a phlebotomist. In 1995, She retired to care for her ailing widowed mother, who passed away in 2005. Since then she spends most of her time writing. One of her greatest influences was her maternal grandmother Mae Powell, a family historian and storyteller, whom, with elbows propped, she would sit and listen for hours, as her grandmother told her stories from her childhood, and all the stories she had heard of their ancestors. She also had an uncle, Leonard Cobb; who was also family historian, and avid storyteller. She credits those early years, for her love of reading and of writing. She is married to Ronnie Beck. She has three children and 3 grandchildren.
