About Susan


I’m a Christian woman with an exciting life’s journey.  Through the challenges of my life, I’ve developed strength, wisdom, and a deep faith that inspires others. I enjoy writing and speaking to audiences of all ages, sharing my story of resilience and overcoming life’s challenges. I love finding inspiring wisdom in every day life.

A new expanded edition of my memoir A Search for Purple Cows is now available from Guidepost Books. For those who know my story, it was a much anticipated release.  For those who haven’t yet heard my remarkable journey, it is one that will both inspire and stir your spirit. It will challenge you to shift your life’s focus, to seek forgiveness, and to find hope – no matter how difficult life has been or is now. Named as the grand prize winner of Inspiring Voices Book Publishing Contest, A Search for Purple Cows is a story of betrayal, abuse, finding faith, the power of forgiveness, and the joy of redemption.

I hold a Masters in Science Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Eastern Nazarene College in Massachusetts, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Computer Science from Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania. I have studied in Sweden at Vilundaskolan and Uppsala University and speak conversational Swedish.

When I’m not sharing my story, I enjoy pursuing my hobby of photography. It is a pastime that enables me to slow down and appreciate the people and places that are part of my journey. I’m a very proud mother of my two children, wife and step-mother.

  1. Hi Susan
    This is Ceal. I met you at Ladies Day Apart in Derry, NH in April. My friend Jackie and I sat with you and purchased your book “A Search for Purple Cows”. Thanks for sharing your story. I found it fascinating to read. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to meet you that day.
    You found Jesus on Christian Radio and I found Him at a movie by Billy Graham in the 70s called “Time to Run”I wasn’t looking for Jesus but he was looking for me as it was with you.
    We were drawn to same preachers. You attended Charles Stanley’s Church in Ga. and I have been listening to him for years on radio and TV.
    I admire your faith in God, trusting him through your life’s journey to keep your family safe walking by faith moment through some difficult times of your life. Thanks for sharing the blessings as well as the trials.
    Life is hard but God is good all the time and he always keeps his promises. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil. 1:13.

    Keep me posted on your journey.
    God Bless You

    • Ceal,

      So good to hear from you! It was great to meet you back in April! Glad you were able to get a copy of A Search for Purple Cows. Yes, life can be difficult, but God is absolutely faithful. It doesn’t mean He answers every prayer the way we wish He would, but He is faithful to give us strength for the journey! If you’re on Facebook, please feel free to join me there. It’s a great way to keep in the loop with what God is doing through my story. I’m at http://www.facebook.com/AuthorSusanCall.

      God bless,

  2. Hello, I am going to get your book. Can’t wait to read it. Through the little bit I’ve seen it mirrors my own experience. I am most interested in how you published your story. I have written my story in with a 12 step book for women dealing with abuse. I have tried many publishers, yet haven’t found my niche yet. I’d love to hear your story of how it went for you and if you have any advice for me. Thanks Meghan

    • Meghan, Good for you on writing your book too! If you aren’t in a writer’s group, I would recommend finding one. It’s valueable to get feedback from other writers. I also highly recommend writer’s conferences.There you can often gain feedback from agents and publishers in addition to making connections. I entered my manuscript in a contest that eventually resulted in a contract with a publishing house. The best thing you can do is continue to get feedback on your manuscript and fine tune it until you are able to publish. Good luck! Susan
