Dreams really do come true. Keep dreaming!

About the Author

Hi! My name is Susan Spence Daniel and I have lived in the Midwestern United States my entire life. I was born the 8th child in a family of 11 children, and love to write stories about my experiences growing up in a large family in a small town in Central Wisconsin, as well as about any other random thought that comes to my mind.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater, with a degree in Elementary Education and an emphasis in Art. I had worked full-time as an executive assistant in a consumer goods company until my retirement in 2017. My dream had been to someday write and illustrate full time.

I write everyday, keeping both a daily gratitude journal, as well as a daily journal. People often ask me if I’m working on my next book. The answer is, I’m always working on my next book or story or blog post. Stay tuned.

I love to travel and keep my suitcase partially packed at all times. Some of my hobbies include cooking, riding bike, getting lost in a great book, and watching movies. Corresponding with loved ones is a favorite pasttime and I enjoy making many of the cards I send out. I also decorate the envelopes with markers, stickers, and washi paper tape, and try to affix matching postage stamps as often as possible. I love collecting postage stamps too, although I am very behind in doing something with all the stamps in my collection. A great day is when my mailbox contains some hug mail – a letter or card with my name on it. I’m a super creative person who just naturally brainstorms, and my love language is words of affirmation.

Savoring the magic in everyday moments and cherishing time with family and friends are both passions of mine.

Being a published author and illustrator was something I dreamed about when I was young, and although I have written many stories, The House that Wanted a Family is my first one to be published. I was thrilled to be able to illustrate it too. I recently moved from Wisconsin to Minnesota, and now make my home in Minneapolis. I’m the mother of one amazing adult daughter and grandmother to one sweet and irresistible baby boy.

    Hi my name is Alice Cutter. My mother is Bernadette McCarthy from Ireland, great friend of your aunt Sally Doran. My mother said she got a nice letter/card from you telling her that your publishing dream came true at last. So congratulations from both of us. I will download your book to my iPad and read it. I enjoyed reading your blog about your daughter going to college. Brought back memories for me.

      Hello Alice, how wonderful to hear from you! Your mother is such a lovely lady and I have such fond memories of times with both her and your father. I’m glad to meet you, if only over the Internet. I so appreciate both of your good wishes. Thank you for taking the time to write and for your support of my book. All the very best to you, your mom and dad, and the rest of your family.
