About the Author

An answerer of calls, SL Sourwine has returned to Canada after 23 years away.  She's replanting herself on the edge of the Rocky Mountains and looking out on the Great Plains of her childhood.   

In 2019 she answered a call and moved to a sweet cottage on the edge of Loch Fyne in Scotland for three years.  It led to an unprecedented adventure in rewilding her own life and entering into a deep relationship with the landscape around her.   A three book series of Letters from The Gardeners Cottage is now available.  The land of that place had a lot of lessons and stories for her though and she's now trying to turn them into a work of fiction and sharing the process here on Substack. Writing and creating for Susie involves lots of walking with her Old English Sheepdog companion Alfred who is so far enjoying emigration to Canada. 

Susie is passionate about shedding the internal systems (and acknowledging the external) that keep people from reaching for the life and work they want.  Her first book A Little Book of Permission and the short audio course on How to Give Yourself Permission is a simple way to get started on the journey to your dreams.  You can also work directly with her by booking a private Permission Session.  Subscribe to Permission Granted and get each post delivered directly to your inbox. I hope to help you know what you want, make decisions and take action towards your dreams.

Before writing, returning and rewilding, SL Sourwine built a twenty-year career in international horse racing with only her passion for horses, the sport, and an English degree. Her experiences ranged from being the volunteer flower gardener at the tiniest of courses in Saskatchewan, Canada to being involved with a winner at Royal Ascot.  Going on to start her own consulting company, the freedom to work on innovative projects led her to founding a new technology company and to finally start to get some books out of her head and onto paper.
