About the Wild Child

top of the world helitrip 09 110

I will always be a kid at heart. Sometimes I jump in with both feet before considering the risk. That’s okay. I am an adrenaline junkie.

plunging 3a

After being raised in the land of happy people and cheese, otherwise known as Wisconsin, I transplanted to Boulder, Colorado which is home to the most active people in the country. My passions include family, skiing, tennis, writing, art, photography and anything that takes me outdoors to enjoy our 300 sunny days. Yep. There are 300 of them, every year.

I love writing about all kinds of adventures both real and imagined usually with a little twist and a sense of humor. Oh, and did I mention that I love to dance?

I host Use Me and Abuse Me Day virtual parties so bloggers can meet each other. Readers are welcome to post a link to their blog in my comment section and then “mingle” with the guests. It is a great place to meet up and “pick up” a few hot new subscribers! The next party will be held on Saturday, June 21st, so be ready to dance! See, I told you…

I finished my first novel. It’s a paranormal thriller with a little romance thrown in for fun. It takes place in the South of France, after all. The apparitions and premonitions in my story are based on some of my own experiences, like the night I spent at the Stanley Hotel. Creepy. I know!

After being diagnosed with breast cancer, I started writing The Boob Report. I can’t change the fact that I will always have breast cancer associated with my name, but I can try to change the way people think about the dreaded disease.I will occasionally add updates recounting my boobectomy and recovery. Boobs can be pretty funny.  Nothing could keep this Wild Rider down for long.

Be sure to friend request me on Facebook – Susie Lindau, follow me on Twitter – @susielindau, or email me at susielindau@gmail.com, especially if you need a columnist for your newspaper. A girl can dream, right?

I went heli-skiing in Canada and now you can’t keep me out of the trees on a champagne powder day!

Come for the ride. Stay for adventure. Woohoo!

It’s always a Wild Ride!

  2. The Hook sent me. It is a pleasure to meet you. I’m sure I’m going to like it here. It has a nice feel. Kind of like marshmallows, stars and a camp fire.

  3. Hi Susie,
    I found you over at The Hook’s place this morning. I absolutely love your spirit, your story and sense of humor. I get to work in Boulder every 4-6 weeks and just being in your great state makes me smile while my blood pressure drops to a happy chill.

    • Thanks so much, Michelle! I am glad to meet you too!
      Boulder is a welcome respite. We’ve been traveling a lot this summer and it’s always great to come home!

    Just FYI in case you are interseted in spreading the word
    “A demonstration protesting the government shutdown of Rocky Mountain National Park is being organized for tomorrow, Thursday, October 10.
    The blockade of our park is very wrong. It’s time for the people to show how they feel about this economy wrecking move by government.
    Please join us for a Peaceful March to protest the closure of RMNP.
    Meet at Beaver Meadows Visitors’ Center on Thursday, October 10, at 10 AM.
    We will walk from the visitors’ center to the barricaded Beaver Meadows entrance. The park belongs to the people.
    Please carry signs of protest.”

  15. Hi Susie, I wanted to comment on one of your boob related posts, but apparently, this work computer thinks that even the slightest mention of the word breast or boob or lump is naughty and filters it as sexual content. Anyway, I’m doing it here. I saw your blog mentioned by the fabulous Jules, Manieac and Renee a. S??whatever her whole name is and figured if these three women love you then you must be fabulous as well.

    I don’t have a happy, funny, cheery, inspiring, uplifting cancer related story to share with you. I’m lucky in that respect. I just wanted to commend you an attacking your “setback” with courage and comedy. Why let it change the wonderful person you are? Cancer blows, but with so many people rooting for you, even perfect strangers like me, you can’t help but beat its ass! Best wishes from Missouri to you, Susie! You go this!

    Great blog! I’m curious, how did you start your 100 word Flash-Fiction Fridays? I started my blog to [try to] keep up all the fiction writing I did in college and am always looking for cool ideas to try to write every day in between finishing up graduate school. Do you have rules for it when you write those pieces? If it’s easier to email, my email is on my ‘contact’ section of my page.

    You’re a great writer!

  78. I’ve nominated you for the Sunshine (blog) Award. Check out who else shares the panethenon with you. :)

  79. I have done a little bit of snooping around and fallen in love with your writing. I wish my life could be just as exciting as yours, thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my blog it meant a lot since you seem pretty established at this kind of thing. I’m still have a lot to learn.


    • Thank you so much Becca! I am so glad that you stopped by to read. I loved your piece about dreaming. I wrote one not too long ago. Love your site and your header is striking! I am sure you will be very successful here at WP!

    Hey, I’m looking forward to your paranormal fiction novel; I’m a fan of the genre (especially experience-based apparitions!). Let us know when it’s done :)

    • That is so great. I will. Thanks so much! I am trying to finish it and then I will be going through rewrites. I want to get it done and move on to a paranormal short story compilation in time for Halloween. If I just didn’t have to eat, sleep, live life, and blog I would be done. Hahaha!
      I am still waiting for a comment on my tattoo comment….lol!

      • Moment Matters

        HAHA I will do that. You know I get you, if we could just be robot for a while to use our sleeping time to write, that would be nice. I’m struggling with time since I’m also in my early stages of writing a fiction novel. You’ve been there, you know how exciting it gets so it takes your life away. Thanks for continually visiting my blog, appreciate it!

  83. Thank you, I shall be looking to your comments!

  84. Thank you for liking a couple of my posts. I like what you are doing with you r blog, and I will now start following you…

  85. Hi Susie,
    it just happened that, surfing in the net, i arrived here. I write from Rome, Italy, and I loved reading your posts. Congratulations! I have fun with horoscopes sometimes, but for the future previsions you should have your personal chart and see what planets move this yeas (or pass over) over your plantes at birth. I can’t do it, a friend explained to me how you make a personal horoscope and previsions for a year.
    I am a teacher and a writer, in Italy is very hard to get published although I have two novels out in the “field”, and recently opened my blog of science -fiction recipes. I find blogging very interesting, I personally cook all the recipes I post, write the posts in three languages, and make pictures- It’s a job, sometimes a funny one. So if you want just visit my blog, you’ll be very welcome!
    Have a great week, you have lots of snowin Colorado, it’s beautiful, we had snow too this year, and for Rome it’s exceptional!
    Claudia Marinelli.

  86. Never short of good stories are you? :)

  87. Susie, I had a wonderful, serendipitous moment with stumbling upon your blog. Just wanted to say hello and say I also live in Boulder and originally came from Wisconsin, as well. So funny how these things jumped out at me, and we have some things in common. I’ve got a WordPress blog, as well, and recently left teaching writing at CU-Boulder. Best of luck! I’ve enjoyed your blog. Take care.

      Thanks for stopping by to check out my Wild Ride!

  96. Nice! I am glad to meet you and hope you will stop by again!

  97. Like your bio. Love how you roll! I’m an outdoors person myself except I’m active in California. 360 sunny days :)

  98. Haha–yeah, I was just in Ireland and saw tons of those, with the requisite tapered legs and short length. (England and Ireland fashions usually filter over here 2-4 years later.) I’m over-tall so I spent my entire teenage life feeling like everything was too small. I do NOT want those pants to come back!

  99. Thanks for stopping by my blog and making yourself known! I’m impressed you’ve saved all that 80’s stuff. I couldn’t get rid of it fast enough. 90’s now? Way more my speed. :-)

    I’m dropping to let you know that I’ve presented you with the 7×7 Link award for your blog. Congratulations, I hope you enjoy this well-deserved award! ~ Julie :)

  104. A photo prompt? Sounds fun…. will definitely need to check it out. Good luck hosting your fiction group!

  105. Hey! I was just directed to your blog today and I must say, I love your layout! It looks great and that picture on your post “I dream of dreaming” is really striking! Looking forward to seeing what you write next :)

    • Thanks Jamie!
      I usually blog a funny post on Tuesdays and a 100 word Flash Fiction on Fridays. This week I am hosting the Fiction group since our leader is on vacation, so I will be posting a photo prompt tomorrow! It is a Wild Week~

  106. Susie, found you from Twitter. Your book sounds very interesting! Where did you transplant to CO from? I was born there. :)

  107. Half FULL!! Hahaha! My tennis season will be starting up soon too~
    Thanks for stopping by!

  108. Don’t know how you find all the time! Glad to hear at least that your coffee cup is half empty!

  109. Hello Susie, very interesting blog and website. I read a few of your posts and will be back for more. In the mean since your into adventure check out my adventure art blog at. http://www.adventureinart.wordpress.com Take care and keep blogging. -Carolina Mike

  110. Exactly Bob! I have done very little research, but I did learn through another blogger’s post that they are communicating too! I guess we are supposed to pay attention to the random thoughts that pop into our minds as we experience something.
    We have a very active house and I really don’t want to stir anything up so I have a tendency to accept them, but not encourage them.
    Thanks for stopping by. I will let you know when I get the book done and published!

  111. I noticed that you are writing about the paranormal and I would like to read that when you are ready to post it. I’ve had some curious experiences over the years and after much thought and consideration about those occurrences they seem to fall into that category. I’ve finally reached the point that I think the paranormal may really be just something normal and natural that we just don’t understand yet.


  112. Thanks Realsnowreport! I will stop by to read!

  113. Hi Susie enjoyed reading some of your stuff and I will be back to look at some more. In the meantime if you want to know how your coffee cup is actually full check out my wine glass in “Its Stopped Snowing” http://realsnowreport.wordpress.com/2011/12/22/its-stopped-snowing/

  114. Hi Susie, thanks for visiting my blog and pointing me in your direction, I will be following your adventures, they seem to be full of excitement and funny!

  115. Thanks so much! As soon as it snows, I’ll get back out there!

  116. I’m not much of a risk-taker/adventurer…so I can just read about your adventures! :-) Thanks for visiting Clip Snark!

  117. Thank you so much Michael! I will check it out. I was dreaming about the ending right before I woke up this morning; a great way to start 2012!!
    I hope you will stop by and read again soon!

  118. Good morning Miss Colorado transplant. You certainly seem to be a jolly active person.

    Quick point about your novel, though I am assuming that you don’t have a publisher. You could consider self-publishing it as an ebook. It’s completely free to do and I have done a few on Smashwords – http://www.smashwords.com

    They convert the book so it works on all ereaders and then push it out to other ebook shops like Barnes and Noble.

  119. I look forward to reading your work… Happy New Year!

  120. Happy New Year and all the very best for 2012
    Eric :-)

  121. Very cool! I will check it out. I am known to do a bit of drabbling on Fridays! Hahaha! I am a fan of music too.
    Happy New Year! I hope you will stop by to read again.

  122. Hi Susie
    Thanks for your Happy New comment on your visit today, do you count music as one of your hobbies?
    Am I right in thinking that a paragraph of 100 words is called a Drabble? The reason I ask is that there is an author on i tunes podcast who has recorded a Drabble novel, with every paragraph exactly 100 words long
    Happy new year to you and yours

  123. Shasta!!! Where’s the rip chord located on this thing…whoops…that was my last chest hair…

  124. Wonderful pictures! I love how active you are. Would you mind lending me some energy? ;)

  125. So glad Josh asked that question. Cold coffee, yuck. Unless it’s a coffee shake, then, good.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.
    I wish you a Merry Christmas

  126. Thanks Andy! I hope you will stop by again!

  127. Way to keep it all in balance Susie! And filling the rest of us in….Great blog!


  128. Thanks Josh! I am so glad you stopped by!
    I do drink cold coffee in the afternoon. A pretty sick habit I am sure! I just never look at it as half empty because I am a 300 sunny days girl!!!

  129. Thanks for visiting my blog, Susie. Looking forward to reading yours as well after a quick peak here. Just one question – If your coffee mug is always half full, don’t you wind up drinking a lot of cold coffee? ;)

  130. Hi Susie, hi there and thanks for dropping in to my blog you are always welcome and by the looks of things I shall enjoy looking around yours!

  131. What a great blog – and you are clearly an absolute inspiration to those like me who aren’t anywhere active enough!

  132. Hello, Susie – I see you stopped-by for a visit this morning…thank you for letting me know you were here! It appears that we have some things in common…family, outdoors, sports, photography, writing…. I think I’ll be visiting you often. Take care, Scott.

  133. Thank you Soma! I am relying on my own paranormal experiences and am weaving them into the plot. I hope to finish it soon.

  134. Loved the pics..wish you all the best for the book you are writing..my fav topic i must add…so am definitely rooting for it..

  135. Love your header and the snow shots – amazing! I love to cross country ski in neighboring fields, it’s so exhilarating. Thanks for checking out my website, and let us know more about your paranormal novel when you can. ;o)

  136. This blog is a great fun read. I see you’re writing a book about the paranormal; my own ghost story got published last year and has sold really well so good luck to you.
