Susan Ideus    
I've been a SCN member since January 2006—one of the best New Years' resolutions I've made! I've been fortunate enough to attend two SCN national conferences and several weekend retreats, and I facilitate online writing group #3. I contribute to SC Book Reviews and have had several pieces of my writing included in SCN publications. I just recently retired from the business world, an event which also coincided with a move back to my beloved New Mexico. I'm discovering just how much I love having time, precious unfettered time, to spend on my passions of writing and reading, and devoting serious time to my memoir. I also enjoy cooking, yarn crafts and needlework. I'm living in Las Cruces with hubby of 40+ years, Harold, and our adorable little Cairn terror, MacDuff. We have two grown daughters and a wonderful son-in-law. Visit my blog, Being Me: Beliefs, Blessings and Blunders.
