About the Wild Child

Welcome to the Wild Ride!

Oversharing and having no shame is a great combination for some wild stories. Whether I’m making a scene or being told to THINK BIG inside my head, I blog about my wild life no matter how absurd it gets in Boulder, Colorado.

Whether I’m skiing,

mountain biking,

biking the boulder reservoir

or hiking in Colorado, I love exploring the wild outdoors.

My husband, Danny, thinks he’s the butt of my jokes and he’s right, especially when karma kicks mine.

Don’t worry. I laugh at myself too. I have an ridiculous sense of humor and have a tendency to go for it whether I’m heli-skiing in Canada or finding my badass self after knee surgery.

I graduated with a BS in Art, but found my true passion in writing. Now I paint scenes with words.

Sometimes I illustrate my posts like this one after NaNoWriMo.

I’ve also been known to take an icy plunge with polar bears and pick up random strangers to ski.

I am a breast cancer survivor and wrote humorous Boob Reports to chronicle my ridiculous journey to being cancer-free after double boobectomies. Boobs are pretty funny. I’m considering nipple tattoos for my bionic boobs. Someday, The Boob Report will transform from blog to book.

Heck yes, these boobs are fake t-shirt

My debut novel is a psychological thriller about a mysterious secret buried deep in the bowels of an old estate in the South of France. I threw in a little romance and humor because France and I’m all about humor. The ghostly apparitions and premonitions in my story are based on some of my own experiences. I know! Everything that happened at the Stanley Hotel that night is true.

I collaborated on an award-winning screenplay called Off Leash/Jennifer’s Gift, with Erik Wolter. We are currently “shopping it.” I also wrote a funny magical realism. Imagine Robert Downey Jr. as a spoiled college professor who needs to lose something in order to grow up.

My goal is to produce books and screenplays people will enjoy. In the meantime, I will continue to soak up writing advice like a sponge and take criticism as a challenge. I’m all about challenges. Bring it on!

  1. Your ‘Use me and abuse me party’ sounds like a brilliant idea (especially as I’m a brand new blogger and a bit short on for followers) – count me in! I may be a bit early/late though (depending on how you look at it) – I live in Australia, so the time zone’s pretty different.

  6. Hi Susie, I found your story inspiring. I have come across a lot of women who have similar problem. Some ran away from problem while some fight it like hell. I am going to have fun reading your posts. Thanks for inspiration.

  7. I am SUPER JEALOUS of your painting! OH GOD I want to learn but I am so afraid! Great post and very inspiring! WOW you replied to ALL THESE COMMENTS!


    • Fear is the hobgoblin of the creative paralysis monster. Banish both of them.
      Buy some pencils, paints and have at it! Do it for yourself and enjoy the process instead of creating for the end product. Enjoy!
      I do try to reply to the comments. You made the effort to converse, after all!

  8. not wild, and my blog is sort of like depressing quicksand, so ponder a bit before thinking about clicking to go there.

    however, i used to live (livid) in bolder! and things were (on the average) much more wilder than they’ve been since. i’ll wander back, and around your corner of the ‘net again, soon.

  10. Love the shirt’s message in your photo. I’ve lost several friends to BC and am lucky to still have survivors in my life. Saw your blog on Dream Big, Dream Often. Looking forward to your wild rides🙂 We both blog about recreation, leisure and the great outdoors, but yours sounds a little wilder. I share stories about windsurfing and lots of other fun things! I’m self-hosted now so my blog does not show up in the WP reader. Here is a post from last week you might like🙂 http://secondwindleisure.com/2016/04/21/wander-a-whole-summer-if-you-can/


    • Thanks for stopping by the Wild Ride! Danny is great about connecting bloggers. Nice to meet you!
      I’m so sorry to hear about your friends. I’m coming up on three years cancer free. Yay!
      I’ll check out your blog!

Thank you! “..The really ones tried to kill me!” HILARIOUS!! Your humor and irreverence are a breath of fresh air! Looking forward to reading more!🙂
