About Susan Gunter
I earned my Ph.D. at the University of South Carolina in 1986, and in 1988 I started teaching at Westminster. During these years I have managed to raise two sons; publish poems, articles, and three books (one on-line); earn grants from the National Endowment from the Humanities and a merit award from the Utah Humanities Council; and work as a Senior Fulbright Lecturer at Sofia University in Bulgaria. Currently I am at work on a biography of Alice Howe James, William James's wife and Henry James's sister-in-law. I think she was the "engine" who pulled her husband's train, as well as a dynamic and strong-willed individual in her own right.
My hobbies include downhill skiing, snowshoeing, weight training, water aerobics, knitting, camping, and gardening. Occasionally I also find time to play the piano.
