The amazing SUSAN SPROULL aka sueswan From Ontario!

Updated on March 23, 2013

Our Natural Susan

I am from Fort William(now Thunder Bay) Ontario.

I have been living in Toronto since 1976. Hated it at first but now I would not live anywhere else. Well, except for New York City and San Francisco.

When I first met Susan at the Hub she was one of the nicest and most encouraging hubbers.

Always a kind word and very loving!

Thunder Bay

This is Thunder Bay where Susan lives.

Now admit it everyone, how many want to get together and go visit Susan and see Thunder Bay? What a beautiful city.


Susan, enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She is a big Elvis fan and attends many Elvis Tribute Festivals


This is Memphis, TN, Beal Street and Main.

Susan, do you know I live here in Memphis? Wow girlfriend. You have to come back so we can go to Graceland and Beal street together.

Debbie: At a cocktail party, I am the wallflower, but if there is music I am the first one on the dance floor. :-)

Susan, we can dance together.. I love love love to dance.. You sound like me!

I am pleased to have recently publish my first book, "Poetry From My Heart."

Susan, where do you live?

Debbie: I am from Thunder Bay, Ontario. I live in Toronto, Ontario

Susan, how long have you been writing on the hub?

Debbie: I have been writing on hub pages for 16 months.

Susan, where do you find your inspiration?

Debbie: I find inspiration from life experiences including mine and others. Family, friends and fellow hubbers also inspire me. I am also inspired by fantasy and how I would like things to be such as love.

Susan, who are your favorite writers?

Debbie: Most of the reading I do is on hub pages so my fellow hubbers are my favorite authors.

Susan, what do you like to write the most?

Debbie: I love to write poems that are positive, and inspirational. I love writing Haiku's because I can say so much in three lines and 17 syllables.

Susan, I have to admit you write some of the best Haiku’s. Tell me about your book!

Debbie: I recently republished my first book of poetry,

“Poetry From My Heart.” as I was not happy with the original layout and design. It is a collection of some of my favorite poems and is available at

Susan, I have your book of poetry and I have to admit it is some of the best poetry I have ever read.

Susan, what makes you laugh?

Debbie: I like reading poetry, inspirational hubs, and hubs that make me laugh.

Susan, are you working on any new projects?

Debbie: I am currently not working on any new projects. I am thinking of publishing a second book of poetry.

Susan, that excites me I want the first copy of your new book of poetry! Tell me about your writing style!

Debbie: I would call my writing style, simple. My poems are short but pack lots of meaning in a few words.

Susan, what would you say to new writers on the hub!

Debbie: Have passion for what you are doing. Keep writing and don’t give up on your dreams. Also, do not be afraid to ask for constructive criticism.

Susan, tell me about your family.

Debbie: My family consists of my mom, Sister Joan, Brother David and my four legged nephew, Beauregard. My brother just got married September 12th. He is the first one in our immediate family to get married. We are all happy and excited for David and Rebecca. When my dad was alive, he and I would meet for lunch on Saturday’s. I have continued that tradition with my mom. She is 80 years old and is still going strong.

Susan, that is wonderful…. I saw your poem on Rebecca and David. Just wonderful! Tell me about what kind of music you like.

Elvis, Suspicious Minds

Debbie: I enjoy listening to a variety of music from Rock ‘n Roll to the classics. I love Elvis Presley and attend many tribute shows with my mom who is also a big fan.

Susan, what is your favorite thing to do?

Debbie: I love to dance.

Susan, I have to say that is my favorite thing to do to, and plus it keeps us in shape.

Susan, what a wonderful interview this has been you are a wonderful person and I have enjoyed interviewing you.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for allowing this interview with you!

      A fellow Canadian and poet. I've driven through Thunder Bay more times than I can count:-) It is a pretty town as is most of Northern Ontario. The Superior route on 17 highways is awesome, scenic and spectacular. This was a lovely interview with Susan and with your words I was able to get to know Susan a little bit better. I to am an Elvis fan and always have been. I did my share of dancing and its a wonderful outlet to get up and shake that booty. Sue is a fine poet and I have read her work as she has mine. We both have shared comments on each others work and I respect her dedication to her craft. Well done Deborah, voted up and shared.
