Susannah Noel grew up in central Vermont, between Montpelier and Woodbury. She lived on an old farm with her mom and dad, three older siblings, two cats, two dogs, a horse, some chickens, a lizard, and a mynah bird. Although she loved exploring the woods behind her house and playing in the countryside, when she moved to Burlington to go to UVM, she got a taste of the urban lifestyle–and she loved it. After college she moved to Boston, and she spent ten happy years exploring Harvard Square and the other squares in Cambridge and Somerville. But when she and her husband were expecting their first child, they decided to move back home to be near her family. Now she has two children–two crazy boys–and she feels settled in Vermont again.
Susannah has been a copyeditor and proofreader of books and journals for over 15 years. She is a certified word, grammar, and punctuation junkie. (Yes, you can get certified in this.) It is one of her goals at CPA Site Solutions to fix any errors she finds without annoying her coworkers.
