About 

  • Susan Scutti is an Atlanta-based writer who covers daily medical and science news for CNN Health. She has also reported more extensively on privacy, genetics and mental health.

    Yet, infectious disease (beware mosquitoes and ticks!) and environmental catastrophe don't occupy all the neurons in her brain. Her poetry has been anthologized in Aloud: Voices from Nuyorican Poets Cafe and The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry. Journals and reviews publishing her poems and short stories include New York Quarterly, Tin House blog, 2 Bridges Review, Oxford Quarterly and The Christian Science Monitor. Her most recent novel is "Fence Sickness."
