Susan Culver-Graybeal is a news reporter from Colorado. She is also the founder and editor of Lily: A Monthly Online Literary Review.

Lily was born in 2003 from Susan's desire to share the beauty of poetry, fiction and photography in a free and easily accessible way. Thanks in large part to a dedicated editorial staff and the literary and photographic contributions, from many talented individuals through the years, the journal was published monthly until October, 2007.

After a three and a half year hiatus, and with the input and encouragement of Indigo Moor, Susan began publishing Lily again in May, 2011. She had never stopped missing the love and work that went into the journal. She continues to be amazed by the beauty of the words and images that the contributors bring to it every month.
