“…I’ve learned that oftentimes, secrets or untold truths can be the root of many great people’s demise.  By boldly living out individual authenticity and truth⁠—no matter how outrageous⁠—we defuse the ability for others to use our past against us.”  -Susan E Foster

Throughout her first two books, Susan reveals uncommon acts of kindness from strangers she refers to as Ordinary Angels. During her darkest moments of Domestic Abuse recovery and surviving the loss of her youngest son to suicide, these beings unexpectedly appear. A graduate of The University of Texas School of Journalism, Susan writes compelling narratives of hope from extraordinarily kind deeds of these ordinary people hoping readers discover the Ordinary Angels in their own lives.

Against very difficult odds, Susan and her three oldest children have pushed
through their greatest life challenges and hopelessness. You can too!

“To look only for Ordinary Angels, we can be blinded and abused by Charming Impossibles. To look only for Charming Impossibles, we can be blinded to the Ordinary Angels in our midst. A healthy life requires balance in what we are choosing and willing to see.   -Susan E Foster


Inside His locked Box tells the compelling Dream Life Cycle story. To dream is to take great risk because daring to dream takes us through the journey of a crash and most often, a series of crashes, before we arrive. And when we arrive, our Dream looks different than we first imagined.” – Susan E Foster

“Scars are but a memory without the feeling and shame attached. Scars remind us we learned something and had the courage to move on.  Our scars are what we use to encourage others. Embrace them.”  -Susan E Foster

Break Free From Narcissists and Domestic Abuse

Too many counselors and “experts” have no real knowledge of how neighborhood narcissists and sociopaths operate because narcissism and the tactics narcissists use are often not taught in psychology courses. Just because they have a license, a PhD, or a certain title does not mean a counselor has a clue about these people…Experience with an abuser can be radically unique from one person to the next, depending on how and why the web is spun.

“I call them ‘Charming Impossibles”—charming is their deceptive invisible mask and convincing lure. Impossible to satisfy is their secret weapon or intentional method of manipulation and control.”
