About Susan

Trained as a journalist, Susan Skog is an author, writer, and advocate for developing world women and girls. Susan's first book, Embracing Our Essence: Spiritual Conversations with Prominent Women, helped spark the women's spirituality movement and led to conferences and engagements with women across the country. Susan's written for AARP, Science, Family Circle, Utne Reader, Prevention, Huffington Post, A Path Appears, and other top media.

Her books have been featured by Forbes, Associated Press, Newsday, Woman's Day, Publisher's Weekly, Travelocity, and others. They've been supported by Thich Nhat Hanh's community, the Jane Goodall Institute, Brookings, and the late Howard Zinn and Yolanda King, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s daughter.

Embracing Our Essence and Radical Acts of Love were national book club selections. The Jane Goodall's Institute's Roots & Shoots youth program selected The Give-Back Solution as a "Book of the Month."

To rally support for girls' education, safe water, maternal health, and poverty relief, Susan's worked with dozens of nonprofits to gather untold stories, from Asia to Africa, that have appeared on NBC, ABC, CNN, and in The NY Times, LA Times, People, Reader's Digest, AARP, and other top media outlets.

Susan is based in Fort Collins, Colorado.
