Krypton Radio Staff Writer Susan Macdonald has been invited to be a guest panelist at MidSouthCon 36. MidSouthCon is the largest and oldest science fiction convention in the tri-state area of western Tennessee, northern Mississippi, and eastern Arkansas. It all happens in Memphis, March 9, 10, and 11, 2018, at the Memphis Hilton Hotel. It is the Mid-South’s “longest-running annual fan-run, all-volunteer multi-genre science fiction convention.”
Susan Macdonald has written over 100 articles for Krypton Radio, as well as being the author of more than a dozen published works of short fiction, mostly fantasy, but also some SF and horror, as well as one romance story and two children’s stories. One of the works she’s most proud of, however, is her alphabet book, R is for Renaissance Faire, which gives kids and adults alike a fun introduction to a fantasy event that has now become practically a national institution.
In her secret identity as a mild-manner suburban soccer mom, she is a substitute teacher and a freelance proofreader/copy editor. She was also an extra in the 1908 county fair scene in the time travel movie Time Boys, which will be released summer of 2018.
At MidSouthCon, Susan Macdonald will be on two panels, “Fantasy Fiction: Past, Present, and Future” and “Epic Women in Epic Literature.” She will also be on Pro Row Saturday afternoon, offering copies of both Alternative Truths and R is for Renaissance Faire for sale to attendees.
