About

susany (Tucson, Arizona, United States)

I was born Susan Araki in Seattle, WA, and grew up in the South Park district of Seattle. Almost two years old when Executive Order 9066 was enacted, my family and I were incarcerated in Camp Harmony and Camp Minidoka for about three and a half years. A free, PDF download of my memories of that time may be accessed at the link given in my bio.

I graduated from the University of Washington, Seattle and worked in computer programming at several companies, including the Boeing Company in Seattle. I retired many years ago from computer systems and network administration at the University of Arizona. Now I am a clay and watercolor artist and love to write both fiction and nonfiction.
