Susan Casslan is a writer and nurse. Her writing touches on daily musings, current events and whatever else comes to mind. Casslan lived for a decade in the San Francisco Inner Mission District and she was greatly inspired by the Latinx culture of that neighborhood. The Inner Mission emerges in her books Conversations with Richard Purcell: The Adventures and Reflections of a Renegade San Francisco Priest and That Which Wavers with the Night, as well as in her chapbook 24th Street and Other Poems. Additionally, Casslan’s nonfiction articles have appeared in El Tecolote, an Inner Mission District newspaper.
