About Susan

Susan Ewing has been in love with the quirky side of nature from the day she discovered doodlebugs as a little girl in her Kentucky front yard. Years and miles later, when she came across the story of the prehistoric buzz-saw shark Helicoprion, she was captivated by its weirdness, dazzled by its extraordinary evolutionary experiment, and smitten by the stories of all the people who helped puzzle out its paleontology.

Succumbing to the lure of an unusual tale waiting to be told, Ewing dug in. Her new book Resurrecting the Shark: A Scientific Obsession and the Mavericks Who Solved the Mystery of a 27-Million-Year-Old Fossil, traces the story of Helicoprion and opens a portal into the murky, little known world of Paleozoic chondrichthyans. For this shark story, you donít even have to go near the water. . .
