SUSAN BOWMAN PROFILE A native of Petersburg, Virginia, I now reside near Albany, NY and enjoy working from home as a freelance writer/editor, graphics designer, inspirational speaker, and home-based travel agent. My passions are writing, traveling, and “people,” and my goals are to publish my writing, travel and write about the places I visit, and meet and work with as many people as I can along the way. I have achieved two of those goals with my published memoir entitled “Lady Father” and more from all over the world - from Australia to India and LA to New York City, even South Africa. My business is called SB Unlimited because what I can do and love to do knows no bounds! I have written numerous eBooks, articles, and website copy, as well as created graphics presentations for my many clients. My memoir was published in May, 2011. EXPERIENCE Freelance Virtual Assistant 2006 – Present As a self-employed Virtual Assistant, I contract through oDesk.com with clients all over the world. Duties include: scheduling, correspondence, record-keeping, creating forms, graphics presentations, writing/editing letters and other copy, maintaining business details, and emailing. Senior Staff Writer, Our Heritage Magazine, San Antonio, TX 2010-Present As the Senior Editor of Our Heritage Magazine from May 2010-April 2011, I built the magazine’s web site twice, wrote feature articles, recurring columns, lead stories and edited all copy. Re-hired as a Senior Staff Writer in February 2012, I now write lead stories, emails, newsletters, feature articles from personal interviews, and letters for the publisher. Freelance Writer/Editor, Self-Employed - SB Unlimited, Delmar NY 2006-Present As a self-employed freelance writer, I write e-books, books, articles, and web copy. I proofread, edit, re-write essays, books, articles, etc, prepare business reports with formatting, and develop training courses (on-site and online) for businesses. I write articles about the many places to which I have travelled from tiny Willsboro Bay on Lake Champlain to Rome, South Africa, and Jerusalem. My most recent trip of note was to South Africa and I am preparing a series of articles based on that magical experience - I met an elephant up close and personal and soared through the air in a Microlight (a cross between a 3-wheeled motorcycle and a parasail) over the Western Province of South Africa. I have a long list of places I have visited and places I want to visit so that I can write about this great world. Travel Specialist, AAA Hudson Valley, Albany, NY 2007-2010 As a Travel Specialist I prepared TripTiks for members, helped them plan vacations, road trips, and tours. I booked flights, hotels, and rental cars and helped them through the pages of the Tour Books, showing them how to find a highly rated hotel or an attraction that offered a AAA discount on tickets. My many return customers loved my thorough search for just the right places for them to visit and my determination to ensure that they had the best trip possible. I also wrote articles for the Going Places magazine of our club.

I started singing when I was around 5 years old. Singing in churches and meeting other female singers led to forming a quartet in my late teen years. I also wrote lots of poetry growing up which led to writing songs many years later. Eventually, all of this singing and songwriting culminated when my husband and I formed Soul SisterSally around 2008. We released our first full length album, Ready To Go, in late 2011. Most of the songs I have written over the years have been with SSS in mind due to the jazzy/funky/r&b nature of our band. These are my genres of choice. However, I have written and enjoy writing other types of songs when I feel so inspired or when an opportunity presents itself. I love being challenged and constantly trying to be a better writer and vocalist. I prefer to write songs that uplift and encourage and offer hope to those who are hurting. I love God, my family, and others. My 37 years may have brought hope, hurt, joy, pain, and every imaginable emotion - but with each circumstance - good or bad - has come a lesson I refuse to keep to myself.
