Susan Hanafee is an award-winning former journalist whose career as a reporter for The Indianapolis Star spanned three decades. She formerly headed corporate communications for IPALCO Enterprises and Cummins Inc.
Hanafee sometimes writes under the pen name of E. C. Thomas. She describes him as a former newspaperman who quit his job 20 years ago to look for a spot where happiness and peace prevail. Finding no such place, Thomas ended up living in a beach community where he dusted off his old laptop and begin writing.
