Meet Susan

Hi, I’m Susan Leighton.  So I turned 50 this year and lost my mind!  Mid-life crisis alert, but not in the way you might think.  Of course, mine doesn’t include hot, younger guys or a fabulous Aston Martin DB9 convertible. I quit my job and embarked on reinventing myself as a writer. Hopefully, this blog will serve as an inspiration to all those who wish to escape the 9 to 5 grind.

Check out my inaugural post, “Escape from the Bored Room.”  It will give you insight into how the Woman on the Ledge was born.

You are never too old to reinvent yourself.  Just look at Madonna.  Well, I am not exactly Madonna, but you get the picture.  One more thing, if you have any comments or if you just want to say hey, go ahead and reach out to me at  I’d love to hear from you!
