Susan Winlaw was born and raised in Southern Ontario, Canada. She went to College Avenue Secondary School and then attended the University of Guelph where she received a BASc in Home Economics/Textiles.
After graduation Susan started a long career at Sears Canada Inc. covering a variety of management roles - Textiles Lab Technician, Retail Department Manager, National Management/Buying positions and IT Project Manager.
Susan is married to Alex Law and joined him as an automotive journalist in 1993. Susan has provided articles to newspapers and on line publications regarding safety in and around the car. In fall of 2008, they published Car Advice For Women (and Smart Men) to help people with the single biggest purchase in their lives outside of a house and its renovation.
All of this meant a lot of away from home with many movies to watch in the air and in hotels. This added to the love of watching and commenting on movies with Alex at home. Susan provides a completely different perspective than Alex in the types of movies enjoyed. Together they cover a broad spectrum of interests.
Susan is a member of WEN (Writers and Editors Network), eWomenNetwork, WINGS and other professional and social groups.
Susan speaks to women's groups, libraries and schools about safety and security around cars as well as the writing/editing/ publishing experience. And although this is all wonderful, she’d rather be crocheting, sewing and of course watching and talking about movies with friends and family.
Depressing as it is to think about bad things (such as death or disfigurement) happening to you, the truth is that if you take certain steps you can maybe avoid those things. Which is what How To Avoid Deadly Everyday Dangers: The Women’s Safety Guide wants to help you with. We put into focus many of the scary things that are out there and suggest ways you can avoid them, in a $3.99 e-book.
Women want to watch movies that appeal to their sensibilities. This book helps find movies that will deliver. There aren't enough movies about women/women's issues coming out of Hollywood and even fewer feature films directed by women. But there are quite a few available if you look beyond the current fare in the theaters. Find entertaining films and support women directors with this book.
