From another Midwest town, Milwaukee, with all of its values and normalcy, Susan went on to fame and fortune in Hollywood, writing for a Minneapolis woman, Mary Tyler Moore.She then re- invented herself in various prominent arenas in New York. Along the way, she wrote the "Search for Mr. Adequate" her well received dating column, and had many romantic adventures, loves and loss and she's "still here." Though her story is unique, her life is relatable to all women, Baby Boomers dealing with divorce, elderly parents, or young women of today still fighting their way to be accepted in a man's world.
