For every woman with a big-haired lady buried inside them, it's time to live large and unleash the authentic person God created you to be. Sue Buchanan, everybody's favorite cheerleader, tells it like it is as she exhorts her beloved readers to look at their life story through a new and different viewfinder, come to grips with the past that has shaped them, and then, with God's help, move on to live a more enriched life. Sue can relate to women who deal with the difficulties of daily life (nasty people, weight and image concerns, aging, God issues, and parenting) as well as the bigger crises of life (hers was surviving breast cancer). And yet, in the midst of it all, Sue reminds readers to take hold of their thinking and give themselves permission to laugh and unleash the cute, witty, delightful, intelligent, passionate, authentic, interesting, life-of-the-party person they always dreamed they would be!
Sue Buchanan prefers to call herself a cheerleader and in that role has been sponsored by such groups as The Susan G. Komen Foundation, The American Cancer Society, and a number of top pharmaceutical companies. A popular speaker, Sue's message is of hope and survival, and of God's faithfulness, even when she feels her prayers aren't getting any higher than the ceiling fan. Former vice president of Dynamic Media, Inc., she has worked with a number of fortune 500 companies. Sue is author of I'm Alive and the Doctor's Dead, Duh-votions!, Girls Gotta Have Fun, A Party Begins in the Heart, and Friends Through Thick and Thin, coauthored with Gloria Gaither, Peggy Benson and Joy MacKenzie, as well as two bestselling children's books: I Love You This Much (with Lynn Hodges), winner of the Children's Choice Award and finalist for the Gold Medallion Award; and Mud Pie Annie (with daughter Dana Shafer), winner of a silver award from Excellence in Media. She lives with her husband, Wayne, in Tennessee. They have two grown daughters, a great son-in-law, and a big gray cat.
