Her short story Step on a Crack was a Finalist for Dialogue in the 2018 CRAFT Elements Contest. She also writes poems inspired by cocktails.
In 2016 Sue read a selection from Invisible Ink at Lit Crawl, a well-known writer’s event in San Francisco's Mission district. She’ll be reading again at Lit Crawl 2019, this time from her second novel, Badge In Here, about women in the tech industry.
"Some of the best things happened to me in San Francisco. Some of the worst things happened to me in San Francisco. I am a citizen of two places and a resident of one. I pledge allegiance - not to a queen, not to a flag - to a topography."
