Author Susan Meachan, who allegedly died by suicide in September 2020, returned to Facebook this week to reveal that she isn't actually dead. She started a Facebook group called The Ward, but it went silent after a September 2020 post written by her daughter announcing that she had died by suicide following bullying and harassment from members of the book community. 2 years later, Susan Meachen has revealed she is alive and returned to Facebook to reveal that she was never actually dead in the first place.
“I debated on how to do this a million times and still not sure if it’s right or not,” Meachen wrote in her back-from-the-dead return to the group on Jan. 2. “My family did what they thought was best for me and I can’t fault them for it. I almost died again at my own hand and they had to go through all that hell again. Returning to The Ward doesn’t mean much but I am in a good place now and I am hoping to write again. Let the fun begin.”
