Susan Imhoff Bird
Susan Imhoff Bird spent her formative years in a Park City, Utah. She later earned her BS and MSW from the University of Utah. Travels in Asia, South America and Europe have exposed her to many different cultures and religions, and have resulted in an award-winning short story, and a book about humanitarian work in Nepal, The Constant Possibility of Grace: A Story of Love, Loss and Tools to End Poverty. Her newest book, Howl: Of Woman and Wolf, will be released in October, 2015. Howl explores the controversy over our commitment to allowing wolves--after nearly a century of absence--to return to the landscape, and our relationship to wildness, all as experienced by a woman searching for her own truth, her own wildness, her own voice . . . her own right to be part of the landscape. When she's not writing she can be found on her bicycle, where her favorite route winds up a canyon filled with wildlife, from owls, hawks and songbirds, to moose, deer, porcupines, and the occasional coyote.
