Beta Reader Sue

This is Sue Fitzmaurice. Sue is a nomad (she lives in lots of places) but she is originally from New Zealand.

This is what Sue has to say about my newest release, The Conversation of Venusta:

"C. Joybell C's 'The Conversation of Venusta' follows on from the wisdom shared in her 2013 'The Conversation of Merachefet', and indeed tops that beautiful volume several-fold with page after page, sentence after sentence, of such beautiful and practical wisdom that almost everyone will think it was written just for them. Even the most die-hard of book conservationists will want to underline and make notes in the margins.

I will personally revel in the hard copy I will purchase of this book, and it will join the very small handful of books I recommend over and over and over to everyone I meet; books that resonate and vibrate with a pure Truth and Beauty that is every writer's dream but which only a few attain. You must add this to your bookshelf, and then you must take it down regularly and feed your soul."

And here is more information about Sue:

Sue Fitzmaurice is from New Zealand. She has been a nurse, a CEO, an executive business consultant and coach; she’s a mother of two young adults, a son and a daughter; she’s an author, and she has a large inspirational social media following.

Sue has an undergraduate degree in philosophy and political science, with a First Class Honours in international law and international relations; and she has a Masters in Business.

Sue had felt for a lot of years that she had a book in her and a few years ago wrote her novel “Angels in the Architecture”, inspired by her severely autistic nephew. The book began with the idea that there is more going on in the heads of autists than we generally think, and it grew into an historic tale, a discussion on prejudice, and an exploration of our beliefs about what is real and what can we know.

Sue has been a spiritual seeker since childhood; she has researched all of the world’s major religions and became a Baha’i at age 22, remaining a member of that Faith for 25 years, until her journey took her full circle to the challenges she experienced in joining an organised religion in the first place two and a half decades earlier.

Sue’s current journey has her helping others in their search for meaning and purpose, something she loves doing. She is naturally very inquisitive about others’ journeys and goals, and asks everyone she meets a lot of questions about themselves, and can offer both a very spiritually-oriented as well as a very practical approach to developing your personal and business goals. She has been described as having the thinking person’s inspirational Facebook page, and is known for her considerable humour and ability to laugh at herself, as much as for her more thoughtful offerings.

Sue has been open about her own clinical depression, which lasted 15 years following the birth of her daughter, and how she has slowly healed this. She has also talked about her own limitations in discovering and living her own purpose, including self-destructive behaviours and a habit of judging others as harshly as she judged herself.

In 2015 she released her first non-fiction offering, simply called “Purpose”. She offers courses online to assist with helping you find and live your purpose, as well as one-to-one and group coaching.

Sue is currently of “no fixed abode” and is travelling the world. Her daughter, an artist, is also traveling, following completion of high school; and her son, a comedian, has plans to take to the road too.

You can connect with Sue by visiting her website, linking with her on LinkedIn, and joining her on Facebook.

Sue is smart. Be like Sue. =)

The Conversation of Venusta is available on Amazon, at CreateSpace, and at many other online stores. If you would rather place an order of this book via your brick and mortar bookstore, simply order it at their front desk and it will arrive in two weeks, regardless of where you are in the world.
