Meet Susan Jean Ricci
Welcome and thanks for checking in! Kindly feed the fish while you're here. I'm a Pisces and those are my wee cousins!
Dinosaurs and Cherry Stems is making the rounds via Amazon, Smashwords, B&N, Kobo, ITunes, etc!! As for me, I'm furiously working on the sequel called, The Sugar Ticket. And if you click on my picture, I will whisk you straight over to Smashwords, where you can purchase my book!
Regarding the future, look for the first book in a children's series, Savannah Banana and the Puddle-Muddle, sometime this year. I have another adult novel in progress as well, Slick Trespass, a contemporary novel about a married couple's struggles with physical and mental illness, and I'm hoping to launch it in late 2013.
My commentaries have been published in local newspapers for many years and my nonfiction articles have found homes in Parenting Teens Magazine, AIM Intercultural Magazine, and Good Dog Magazine. Several of my short stories have also been published on the Internet.
The writing bug's been in my blood since I was twelve when I began the Hill Weekly, my neighborhood newspaper...it sold for a dime an issue. Little did I know a newspaper located just a bit east from here would steal my idea and become a nationally known gossip rag!I've won several awards for my writing via the Writer's Digest 78th Annual Writer's Contest and the Philadelphia Writer's Conference, June 2011.
Please feel free to share your comments here or on my blog page if the spirit moves you. I welcome any suggestions/advice you may have regarding my projects and please enjoy the video--Hold On Tight To Your Dreams!

Dinosaurs & Cherry Stems
A click up there ^^^^ will take you straight to Amazon land!
Twice divorced, cynical Cindy Layton feels like a relic with prehistoric baggage, and doubts she can muster the courage to establish a new relationship, even if it's on her own terms.
Her journey out of the Stone Age hits freaky, hilarious turbulence when she joins an Internet dating service. The scammers and weirdoes she meets in cyberspace make Cindy want to crawl back into her cave, until she receives an accidental email from Jay DeMatteo.
Jay has the dating blues, too, but after meeting Cindy, reconsiders his options. Now it's up to him to convince her it's never too late to pursue a meaningful relationship, even when there's baggage.
Can Cindy and Jay navigate the maze of midlife adolescence to reach each other's hearts?
The answers are revealed in Dinosaurs and Cherry Stems...so fasten your seat belts, there's a bumpy ride ahead!
