Suzanne Grosser


The only thing I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a writer. (Except for a brief period when I was three years old and decided I would be a fire fighter because I really wanted to drive that fire engine.)

When I was five, I was so obsessed with reading and writing, that I was even willing to give up my play time to go to school. Once I could read and write, I could learn anything I needed to know. I would not even have to go to school anymore!

That is when I learned that life does not always work out the way you have it planned.

When I faced some serious challenges in my life, I did what writers do. I wrote about it. I figured the things I learned from that experience might be useful to other people. If my words could help another person recover faster or avoid some pitfalls, I wanted to share them. That writing morphed into a website and continues to grow as new information about PTSD becomes available. My first eBook, "Stay or Go", was born to address the biggest issue facing people who have a loved one suffering with post traumatic stress.

The biggest mistake I have ever made was not trusting myself.

The smartest thing I have ever done remains to be seen.

Smashwords book reviews by Suzanne Grosser

  • PTSD: A Fifteen Minute Guide to Combat Related Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder on Oct. 27, 2012
    (no rating)
    The book provides a good overview of PTSD, including treatments. The chapter on how PTSD affects the brain was new material to me and very interesting. The list of resources at the end is a great starting point for finding the help you need.
  • Tailwinds: Adventures of a Young Aviator on Nov. 18, 2012

    If you are interested in flying, this book is packed with historical information you will enjoy. It is a ficitonalized account of one exceptional character, Rusty Martin, whose adventures highlight an exciting time in aviation history. The story often reads more like nonfiction. But the facts are so engaging that it kept my interest. A quick read with lots of great links to more information.
  • Pumped: Great Words to Keep You Going When Hope Is Hard To Come By on Nov. 21, 2012

    Plenty of good quotes and stories to inspire anyone who needs to persist in a difficult situation.
