The author has worked in public school libraries for over thirty years, most recently in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Ms. Kite has been married to the love of her life, Daniel, for over 35 years. They have two children and seven grandchildren and are owned by a bossy cat and an opinionated chiweenie-terrier.
Susan Kite is an Army brat; which means she grew up everywhere. She didn't begin to settle down until her dad did. She earned two degrees at Utah State University, and began dabbling in writing. However, she didn't get serious until her children were grown. Now it is a contagious disease and she doesn't want to be cured!
Her first novel, My House of Dreams was written after several visits to the Mission San Luis Rey. A fantasy short story was included in an anthology published in 2013 called aMUSEing Tales. Another short story won second place in an online contest. A science-fiction novel, The Mendel Experiment, was published in April, 2015 by World Castle Publishing.

I will be in Oklahoma and Utah for two weeks next month. One of those days includes a book signing in Salt Lake City. This will be the evening of October 10th in Wellers' Books at Trolley Square. I am extremely excited about this. I went to Sam Weller's often during my Utah days (in their old State St. location). They are a very old and established new and used book firm (almost 100 years) and I was thrilled when they extended the invite.
So that is the reason I will not be at the October meeting. See y'all in November! By then I'll know how my novels did in the Flordia Writers Association Royal Palm Literary award competition.
My aplogies for the lateness of the notice, but this interview will be available to listen to online later. I will be interviewed with another author tonight (Friday, Sept. 15th) at 6. I have done this once before and S. Evan Townsend is a wonderful host. I hope you can listen in sometime.
Have a great weekend!
Retirement isn't the only happy news in my life. My new book is coming out next month. The Power Stone of Alogol is the third installment in the Mendel Experiment series. In this one Corree must once again leave her home planet, Mendel. Her creator's nephew is not only trying to interfere on Mendel again, but has created chaos in the Federation itself. Only by infiltrating Jayson Windemere's inner circle disguised as Corin, the elder Windemere's clone, would she be able to figure out what was going on. Her journey takes her not only to Jayson's headquarters but a planet that the renegade scientist and his partners would like nothing better than to destroy along with every other non-human in the Federation. The power stone she found on Alogol will be tested to the limit of her and its abilities.
