Writer Profile: The Retro Housewife
The Retro Housewife was born Sue Ann Marie Barbara Jean Wilson on August 14, 1941 in Casper, Wyoming. The daughter of a ruggedly masculine sheriff and her demurely erudite husband, The Retro Housewife took an early and girlishly appropriate interest in those aspects of American art and culture which are so comfortably reminiscent of 18th century thought and tradition. A voracious reader of books, the young Housewife took a special liking to the tragically romantic works of the Frenchman Victor Hugo, most notably his seminal novel "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," from whose dog-eared pages she would later would take her inspiration when selecting a mate.
After earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from We-Read-Good College, The Retro Housewife found herself still without a bread-winning spouse. Wisely hedging her bets, she took refuge in post-graduate education, where she is currently spouse-hunting while enrolled as a graduate student in Communication. Unfortunately for The Retro Housewife and her spousal pursuits, The Retro Housewife is an intellectual genius and a brilliant writer, but as we all know, a thinking woman doesn’t attract real men! The Retro Housewife’s star sign is Leo. She likes movies, Infusium 23 shampoo, postmodernist interpretive dance, and playing second fiddle to any man who’s brave enough to play first.
