Susan Rukeyser had laser tattoo removal and, yes, it’s that bad. Her current home is the American South but she’s only half-American and not particularly Southern. She earned her MA in Creative Writing from Lancaster University, UK. She’s the author of the as-yet-unpublished novel Not On Fire, Only Dying. Her short work appears in PANK, Eclectic Flash, Short, Fast and Deadly, Ink, Sweat and Tears and others. She does her best to explain herself at susanrukeyser.com.
