Coffee, cappuccino, lattes, Americanos, and even straight-up espresso, Susi has an addiction to all things coffee.  Add in hot and iced tea, and Susi may have a problem–but figures there are worse things she could do that have a little too much caffeine. 😉


The coziest place on the planet, at least in Susi's mind, is a blanket on the beach on a warm day with a great book and hot cup of coffee or an ice-cold sangria.

The coziest place on earth–a blanket on the beach on a warm day with a great book.

Susi loves life’s coziest aspects-big comfy chairs that engulf you when you sit down, yummy comfort foods, and homey small towns filled with quirky characters–something reflected in her writing.

Snuggled into her office with a giant cup of coffee, Susi finds the creativity flows. Whether she is writing a new article, coming up with an eccentric new character, or adding an artistic flair to a client’s website, some of Susi’s happiest moments happen when she is hard at work.

And more…

susi-profile-1-2017Susi has been married almost fifteen years.  Hubby is her biggest cheerleader and willing taste tester. Over the years, the recipes Susi tries became more adventurous, but he always eats whatever she puts in front of him–even on the rare occasions where it is horrible. Even better, he always finds something he likes about every dish, even when she can’t.  How’s that for support? 😉


Susi and Hubby have an adorable little fur-bimg_0587aby who would be happiest if Susi would spend less time working and more time dedicated to puppy snuggles. You can follow along with Cami’s adventures on Instagram, where Susi tends to post way to many puppy pics.

She loves cooking and baking.  New recipes, old recipes, or putting her own twist on a classic, Susi finds quality time in the kitchen to be both relaxing and invigorating. The daughter of a foodie father, she will try just about anything once.


When not in the kitchen, Susi is an avid reader. She is also an avid sports fans, following the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Boston Red Sox, Duke and Notre Dame football and basketball, and the Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders.

Susi loves spending time with family and friends, but, at the end of the day, there is nothing she loves more than curling up on the sofa in front of Hulu or Netflix. 😉
