I owned a successful desktop publishing and printing business for twenty-three years that I sold in October, 2008. Since then I have been having a wonderful time expressing my creativity through writing and painting. I painted full-time from 2010-2014. In 2015, I turned my focus to my writing. My first e-book, Stop Dieting Forever! How I stopped counting calories, lost 100 pounds & kept it off, came out on Amazon in January, 2016.
I have wanted to be a writer since I was very young. Books kept me sane during my difficult childhood. Losing myself in books and their ability to make what was going on around me disappear, if even for a few hours, was a miraculous lifeline.
And, of course, my husband (Tom) and I have enjoyed traveling since our retirement. My favorite land trip of my life was my trip with our daughter to France. She had to attend a conference in Lyon, located in the south, and invited me to come along. Lyon is beautiful! When her conference was over, we took the train up to Paris where Tom (her father) joined us. We had such a good time exploring Paris with her before she had to go back home! Then Tom and I took the train down to Provence and stayed in the small walled town of Avignon. The French people, with the exception of one cab driver, were very friendly and most of them spoke enough English to get by.
My favorite water trip? Our two week cruise through the Panama Canal. We started in Miami and ended up in LA. In between we stopped in Columbia, Costa Rica and Panama City. If you get a chance, don’t miss it.
So, the website for my writing is SusanLStewart.com. Eventually, this site will move over there. Right now I’m trying to maintain five websites and I just can’t keep up! :) I think consolidating them is a good idea.
