Susan Abraham is an award-winning technical writer and in previous lives been an international recruiter, collections agent, teacher, seamstress, and farm hand. She has travelled to China, through Eastern Europe, experienced the shelling first hand of Nicaragua and a survivor of an underground train crash.
Susan Abraham undertakes her first published literary work recounting life as a single parent with a young child, penniless, under-employed and at risk of losing everything.
In her first book, she takes the reader from the point of desperation, digging her way out of massive debt using simple strategies and a tenacious attitude to finally reach financial freedom. Using wit and wisdom, she lays out a step-by-step BLUEPRINT that not only charts a way out of debt but shows the reader how to build a permanent safety net.
