Sue Rovens


I am an indie suspense/horror writer with two novels out in the world. Badfish, my first novel published in 2015, was joined by Track 9, recently published in April, 2017. I also have an anthology of short horror stories, In a Corner, Darkly: Volume 1, which is available on Amazon, and will soon be joined by a revised edition of Volume 2.

When I’m not writing, I’m either running, watching weird movies, lifting weights, herding Bella and Noodle around the house (2 poofy cats), or hanging out with Charlie, my “partner in crime”.
