One of Susan’s favorite beach activities is scavenging for beach glass. Beach glass is created when broken shards of glass become smooth, frosted, and precious, transformed by the gentle lapping of water and the persistent rubbing of sand. Typically, she finds brown, white, and sometimes green beach glass but rarely blue. Blue glass is a rare find indeed! For her, finding blue beach glass is like discovering the extraordinary in the everyday joys and difficulties of life. Her hope for her readers is that they will find glimpses of the unique person they are within and the story that is unfolding for them; that they will heal the rough edges that long to be smoothed out; and that her readers will discover or rediscover that wisdom from within that is available to all of us. 

Susan is looking forward to the book launch/book talk at the Confederation Centre Public Library in October where she will be focusing her talk on discovering our hidden parts of self and how the gifts they offer us can be uncovered in the ordinary circumstances of life.

Susan returned to graduate school after a long and varied career in technology, management and education. She holds a MEd in Counselling from Acadia University and is a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
