Life on Earth is an amazing adventure.
It took me a long, long time to understand the value of creative play. I was lucky enough to have four children, so, for many years, I had a good excuse to play and experiment with all sorts of materials.
I kept coming back to the written word. My best medium.

A TALE OF TWO FUNERALS
Short story based on one of my memorable experiences as a hospice volunteer. Accepted as a contribution for the dia de las muertas celebration at Albuquerque's historic Fairviiew Cemetery. Now slated for inclusion in the NM Humanities Council's Cemetery Stories anthology
With a Master's Degree in Spiritual Psychology, and a Doctorate degree in Consciousness Studies, my writing interests are wide and varied.
In no particular order...
I have been writing forever. I remember creating books with my friends as a young child, writing and illustrating adventure stories.
I was once a featured poet at a local bookstore celebration of poetry month. I read my poems Shoes, and Hall Closet. Though this was many years ago--seems like an entirely different life--people still mention how those poems affected them. I am honored.
I was a childbirth and parenting educator for many years and had articles published in Peter's Path, a Journal of Parenting and Spirituality.
I have written several full-length manuscripts and ghost written one.
I have been mentioned in the acknowledgment in three separate books.
I don't know anyone who would not benefit from this book. It seems that very few understand how much power and control they have over their own happiness and attitudes. This book demonstrates ways to take control and be accountable for our own state of mind.
Sue lives her words. The light that follows her through life is truly remarkable. Read this book, do the exercises, and I dare you not to smile.
Quick read & life-changing. Easy to incorporate the exercises into your daily life.
Such a wonderful book! It is clear and concise. It is so sensible and easy to follow. When I am feeling low, I pick up this little gem and I am reminded how easy it is to choose happiness over sadness!!
I am so happy (pun intended) to have come across this book! It has truly helped me see what it means to sustain happiness.
