After a lifetime as musician, teacher, and musical theater director, Susan Moore Jordan wrote her first novel, How I Grew Up, in 2013. Two additional novels followed: Eli’s Heart in 2014 and You Are My Song in 2015, completing “The Carousel Trilogy.”
Jordan attended the College-Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati and earned her bachelor of arts degree from Thomas Edison University some years later, after a hiatus to raise three children and a move from Cincinnati to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania with her late husband Sam, a tenor. All of her novels are drawn from her life experiences as a voice teacher and stage director and are inspired by real people she has encountered.
In 2015 she retired from over thirty years as director of musical theater productions and wrote about her adventures in More Fog, Please: Thirty-One Years Directing Community and High School Musicals, released in November, 2016.
