Susan Marlene Writes
Timeless Significance For Every Day
Inspire, Refresh, and Renew...
Published in Splickety Love magazine 1.2, "The Novice", and a couple of newspapers, I thoroughly enjoy writing devotions. My love for reading and writing both contemporary and historical fiction leads me on adventures, which cause my pen to keep scratching out pages of pure imagination. Believing there were ‘kindred spirits’ close at hand, I became a co-founder of Pens of Praise Christian Writers. I enjoy membership with American Christian Fiction Writers, Pens of Praise, and Lighthouse Christian Writers and formerly with Jerry Jenkins Writers Guild. I am privileged to be a wife, mother, grandmother, and an At-Risk Teacher’s Aide. A Boxer named Cricket and a cat of unmistakable royal origin curl at my feet or spur me on to chase ideas or tennis balls or falling objects. Depending on who wants attention more the dog or the cat. (Our Leonberger, Porschea, passed away last spring. (2018) So far, any photos of a Leonberger on my web page are from our sweet girl. And if your lucky you can catch a photo of her with my runaway slippers.)
My desire and joy is to inspire and refresh, hoping that dreams and purpose will be renewed for you!
Write along with me by following our Pens of Praise prompts and lessons here on my Writers & Pens page or on my blog inkyquillbysuzie.blogspot.com
Get ready and start you writing and chasing your dreams. Let me know how that goes for you!
