Her books, “Defending Our Lives” and “Moving Out, Moving On” are considered the bibles of how to make the move away from abuse and deal with the many confusing situations surrounding a break-up or divorce. She has two new books scheduled for release in 2009, “Time’s Up” and “Holding My Hand Through Hell.” Susan is an adult survivor of her parents’ violent marriage. Her father, a Chicago Violent Crimes Detective, murdered her mother and then took his own life after the couple separated.
