Sue McGarry is an author - slash - user experience designer. Originally from Canada, she moved to San Francisco in 1995 to escape winter and work at Apple Computer. The City wakened her creative muse. She recently completed a novel, Invisible Ink, set in a near-future San Francisco where the Golden Gate Bridge no longer exists.
She also writes short stories based on her experiences working in the tech industry, and poems inspired by cocktails.
Sue is a member of the Alabama Street Writing Group, a weekly writing workshop, and read a selection from her book at the ever-popular Lit Crawl event in San Francisco's Mission district, in 2016.
"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."
