Susan's most recent book, 'Good Morning Diego Garcia' is available for just 99c/99p in eBook format!
You're young, living comfortably in southern California. You're financially secure, though you don't know why or how. Your husband simply ignores you when you ask too many questions. He's hoping for another job overseas, doing something. You're not sure what, but you suspect it's not what he says.
Your marriage is shaky. You survived a war in Cyprus together, and lost everything. Now you're basically biding time.
A letter arrives from friends you knew in Cyprus. They're sailing a new yacht from Taiwan to Europe for a Swedish millionaire. You're invited to join them in Sri Lanka, as crew. Neither of you knows boats, but you'll learn -- it will be the trip of a lifetime, cruising the Indian Ocean in a pleasure yacht!
And, it turns out, in monsoon season. With no charts. And an emotionally unstable crew mate. What could possibly go wrong?

One woman’s story: a child lost at birth, war, betrayal, travel, dreams, and art.
In a hospital in a foreign land, a young American woman gives birth. Her son, one hope of saving her troubled marriage to a mysterious man, is born dead. Soon after, while she still grieves, Susan's island paradise in Cyprus collapses into a war zone, and she finds herself trapped in fierce fighting between defending Greek and Turkish forces. Evacuated by the British Navy, she starts putting pieces back together in England. Then she learns that her husband had something to do with the war. And in lucid dreams, she sees that he is also cheating on her. She confronts him, and he responds with a too-professional chokehold that threatens her life. Stunned, she finds herself penniless in the streets of Brussels. But friends, dreams, and creativity push her forward as she discovers that her "ticking clock" is not the need to produce a child, but her need to create a life that reflects her true expressive self.
"This twelve-year memoir of profound personal transformation and friendships is a true page-turner. Again and again, you will ask yourself "what could possibly happen next?"
