Sue Glasco lives on a small lake in Southern Illinois and writes about rural life, grandchildren, local history, and retirement.


Background Information

Sue Glasco has always felt a need to express what she experiences.  She used to want artistic talent to paint or draw when she felt overwhelmed by beauty around her.  Lacking that gift, she began using words to process the world  instead.

As a young mother in the 1960s living on the farm that she and her husband bought, she freelanced and also wrote a weekly column about their family.  Wanting to share those columns with her four adult children and her eleven grandchildren, she published the columns with 2005 comments added in a book called:  Down on the Farm:  One American Family's Dream.

After what she calls a haphazard and often part-time career in education (substituting in K through 12;  teaching English, journalism, and speech on the secondary level; teaching speech and English in area community colleges; and finally working for six-and-a-half years in family literacy), Sue retired in July 1998 and resumed her original career as a housewife.

After a year of catching up with friends and family, she began writing childhood memories for familly history purposes. In the year 2001 she was busy with her husband planning and moving from their farm house of 38 years over to a retirement home built on the lake her husband had built for that purpose.  Thus, that year her resumed part-time writing career was interrupted again.

Sue is now researching the Trail of Tears through Southern Illinois in hopes of writing a children’s book on the legend of Priscilla, the Hollyhock girl, who was freed from slavery off the Trail by Brazilla Silkwood of Mulkeytown.
