Welcome to the Wild Ride!

If you’re looking for inspiration, travel tips or entertaining posts about life’s misadventures, you’ve come to the right place!

Oversharing and having no shame is a great combination for some wild adventures. 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 a 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 wrote an open letter to them and they responded. Someday, The Boob Report will transform from blog to book.

Heck yes, these boobs are fake t-shirt

Along with non-fiction, I write thrillers. My debut novel takes place in a Gothic estate in the South of France. The apparitions and premonitions in my story are based on some of my own experiences. I know! Everything that happened to me at the Stanley Hotel is true.

I also write screenplays and collaborated on one with Erik Wolter. We are currently shopping it. I also wrote a funny magical realism. I’m a busy girl.

After blogging for almost seven years, I love to share what I know while building my blogging community!

  1. Hey, Susie! Just wanted to give you a heads-up that Sherlock, by tiebreaker, made it on to the semifinals of the Fictional Hunger Games. His opponent, starting Friday, will be River. Feel free to make a short statement why you think he would beat her. Good luck!


        1. The economy has bounced back a bit since then. I think that was our worst year. Steamboat is beautiful and I am sure you are taking advantage of the visits! They got a bunch of snow last weekend!
          Thanks for coming by!


  2. HI Wild One, I just dropped by to let you know I was stealing one of your great ideas. I told my readers I would. It was send me link to your favorite post idea. Also, I wanted to let you know I nominated you for an(other) award. If you want to play check out http://ourlifein3d.com/2012/12/11/this-is-so-crazy/ if you chose to play don’t do what I did.

    1. What a nice note to find on my computer! Thanks Subhan! Ironically, I thought about you yesterday after seeing your avatar on a friend’s blog post.
      Happy New Year to you too! I wish you all the best of 2013 and hope all your hopes and dreams come true! Wouldn’t that be amazing?? It could happen!
      I will look forward to reading your posts in the coming year. 🙂


  4. I found you through Denise’s Inspired2ignite blog. She had you on a short list of blogging friends in honor of her 1st anniversary of blogging, and since I adore Denise, I had to visit your blog.

    And, wow, you are quite a gal! I love your hooya spirit. I’m excited to follow your journey!

  5. Hi, Susie. Just wanted you to know that I really like your blog and nominated it for the Sisterhood of the World award. No worries if you don’t do awards, but I wanted to give your blog a shout-out for my readers since your writing and sense of humor keep me motivated to continue working on my novel. Thank you.

    Here’s the link to the post, if you’d like to read more: http://craftycooknook.wordpress.com/2013/05/29/high-fives-for-the-sisterhood-of-the-world-blog-award/

  6. 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!

  7. Susie. Don’t know if you’ve seen Pied Type’s post/ news on ch 7
    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.”

  9. 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.
