Professional Writer & Editor
As editor of RLife Magazine,
I utilized a small stable of
reliable, quality writers that I
knew I could rely on to produce

Some writers are naturals,
and that's how I saw Susan
when she wrote feature
articles for Nevada Home
Magazine. Her style
flows, her prose captures,

extra. When I was the editor
for Nevada Home, I looked
forward to Susan's articles.
She made my job easy. I
still look forward to
reading her prose, just for
the enjoyment of it.
