A Flexitarian Journey MeSuzanne Goulden is a Canadian author who writes middle grade and young adult novels.

Her first raw and edgy young adult novel, Empty Cup, was published by Rebelight Publishing Inc in 2014, under the pen name Suzanne Costigan. It received excellent recognition and more details can be found here. Unfortunately, Rebelight shut down in 2017 and the novel is not available in stores at this time. (Print copies are available. Please contact Suzanne directly to make arrangements.)

She is currently working on a middle grade fantasy adventure novel set in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta.

If you live in or near Winnipeg, and you’re a writer of middle grade or young adult fiction, you may be interested in her YA Book Club for Writers. Check out the blog for book reviews of middle grade and young adult books.

She lives a short drive from Winnipeg, Manitoba, on an acreage in the country, surrounded by trees and quiet. She is a proud mom of her two adult children, Shelby and Matt. She and her husband, James, foster high-risk children in their home. They also enjoy their beloved furry mix of adorable little dogs and aging tired cats.

Her personal interests are writing, reading, crocheting sci-fi and fantasy characters (link to take a peek), CrossFit, yoga, painting with acrylics, and photography (visit our photography site). She is a student of holistic nutrition and lives a healthy lifestyle with a flexitarian diet, which you can read more about at her other blog, A Flexitarian Journey. She believes in dreaming big.
