Susan Shell Winston

Susan Shell Winston lives in a small Texas town, just west of Houston and two stars east of the moon. Trained in Anthropology and in medieval French and English literature, she lived for four years under a Celtic hillfort in the forests of Germany where the Brothers Grimm once walked. As neighbors bought their teas and medicines in local hexestuben (witch’s huts) and carted their morning milk cans into quaint half-timbered towns, her fantasy world on the planet Colonium sprang to life around her.  Her novel, Singer of Norgondy, is available at Amazon. A companion pamphlet, CrossJacks!,  describing the cutthroat betting game her characters play, is also available. A member of the first Odyssey Workshop for Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Writers, and chosen by her class to lead its first TNEO workshop for returning grads, Susan is now busy preparing her other novels in the Colonium series for publication, and, oh yes, collecting and reproducing medieval and Renaissance puppet plays.  For more about her fantasy world, visit
