Susan B doesn't just have experience writing about crafts; she's done the crafts about which she most frequently writes. She and her husband started a cottage business making soy candles with all natural ingredients. Their small business has shipped candles to both ends of the country.
In addition to making candles, Susan spent many years doing calligraphy and learning the about the craft as ancient and Medieval scribes did. She has also learned to make her own inks, using the outer skin of black walnuts and other natural ingredients.
