Her first novel, Faces of Courage, is in revision. Susan is the author of California Homeschool Manual, was the assistant director of the SoCal Christian Writers’ Conference, and is the president of her local ACFW-OC Chapter. She is a professional writer/journalist. Susan is proof you can begin a writing career after age seventy.
