About the Author

Ms. Morrell was raised in northeast Ohio, but has lived on both U.S. coasts and places in between. She attributes her gypsy spirit to her Hungarian and Bohemian bloodlines, "...with a little Italian passion thrown in to make life interesting." The oldest child in her family and extended family of cousins, Susan was comfortable playing alone and spent a lot of her time reading about "best friend" Nancy Drew's adventures as an amateur detective and imagining herself in a similar role when she grew up.

While she never became a detective, Ms. Morrell did assimilate some of Nancy's independent spirit. Her work experiences run the gamut from large corporations like Xerox, to small family-run businesses, banks, an advertising agency and even her own interior design and consulting firms.

Currently, Susan lives in Utah and has a motivational speaking/training business called Speaking of Enrichment, while also working at a ski resort year-round. In most of the jobs she's held, she's been involved with personnel training and employee publications, putting her writing and speaking skills to diversified use. Since settling in Park City in 2000, she's been a member of an improvisational comedy troupe and a lay minister at the Unity church, has produced a CD of guided meditations with a local musician and has conducted workshops on creativity and spirituality, often talking about her solitary experiences and how they've enhanced her life.

Ms. Morrell was married and divorced in her thirties and, while she didn't have children of her own, claims her brother Tony's children as her own. "My favorite role is being an aunt to my three 'kids' - nieces Christina and Rachel and nephew Michael. "Auntie" Mame Dennis is one of my inspiring role models, and I hope that I inspire these three young people in the same way by the life I live."
