Nora Fussner has a BA from Sarah Lawrence College and an MFA from CUNY Brooklyn College. Prior to moving to western Pennsylvania, she lived in Brooklyn and taught for eight years for CUNY Start, an intensive developmental reading and writing program at Kingsborough Community College. Since moving to Pittsburgh in 2018, she has taught for the University of Pittsburgh.
The Invisible World was partially inspired by a freelance job she held while pursuing her MFA, working as a logger on several reality shows including “The Haunted” on Animal Planet and “Psychic Kids” on A&E.
Nora grew up in a 200+ year old house but, sadly, never found evidence of a haunting.
She lives in Pittsburgh with her husband and their senior dog, Karly.
Nora is represented by Aimee Ashcraft, Brower Literary & Management.
