Authoring Baby Boomer Fiction –
Where to start and how to finish!
Susan Santangelo has been a feature writer, drama critic, and editor for daily and weekly newspapers and magazines in the New York metropolitan area for over twenty years, including a stint at Cosmopolitan magazine. A public relations and marketing professional, Susan was president of her own special events agency, Events Unlimited, in Princeton, NJ. Diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998 and after treatment, she searched for a program which would provide information on survivor issues such as post-treatment diet, exercise and a wellness support group. Finding none, she began the Breast Cancer Survival Center (BCSC), an all-volunteer not-for- profit which provides free post-treatment education and support services to breast cancer survivors and their families. Susan began writing fiction to highlight the emotional challenges being faced by Boomers such as herself. She divides her time between the Connecticut shoreline and Cape Cod, MA, sharing her life with husband Joe, and three English cocker spaniels. To learn more about Susan, visit her website.
