Quotes from readers:
from Vickie Paget - Time 4 U magazine:
"When I walked out into the busy embrace of the bracing fresh air outside Belfast's Europa Hotel, I felt decidedly odd...
But in a good way. A wee bit dizzy and dazed. A little bit shaky and light-footed. I feel a bit silly admitting this, but it was as if someone had tickled my heartstrings with soft, glittery fingertips.
'That's not something that happens every day!' I hear you cry, dear reader, and you're absolutely right - because it's not every day that you meet Susan Phoenix.
Spirit and Destiny Magasine journalist.
"......Finished the book yesterday. It's such an incredible, intense and beautiful
ending. Wow! A highly enjoyable book you've written there, and I think an
important one because it's accessible to all and totally brings that whole
magical world nicely down to earth. Well done."-
".......just wanted to say that I read your book - Out of the Shadows - in two
days. It was a wonderful experience, a heart warming and mind-opening read."
She Co Authored Phoenix, Policing the Shadows before Out of the Shadows, A Journey Back from Grief. The first best selling book published by Hodder and Stoughton in collaboration with Jack Holland was her husband's life story, a controversial look at the RUC and Counter terrorist work in Northern Ireland entwined with a very human love story. It sold over 80,000 copies in hard and paperback. She was thanked for sharing a real policeman's life story with truth and humour. It now sells on Kindle and fan mail continues to praise a book that is 17 years old.
Phoenix was called the most well balanced story to come from the Northern Ireland Troubles at that time. But controversy continued . See links to websites clearly illustrating cover ups at high ranking levels around the Ministry of Defence. Is military flying safer now or not?
Buy it on Kindle, the controversial new bonus chapter in the second kindle edition of Phoenix, Policing the Shadows,references reports that raise discussion as to the real cause of the Chinook crash that killed her husband on the Mull of Kintyre in 1994. The fact that the pilots were rightly cleared after a 17 year battle by committed supporters was overshadowed for many by the fact that lack of decisions by RAF and MoD senior officers contributed to un airworthy aircraft being released to service. This Final Chapter suggests that over 60 deaths could have been caused by faults within a weak system of management.
She was an experienced psychologist for the deaf community in Ireland and Europe and worked with teenagers and pre-school children in Northern Ireland for many years. Her introduction to formal writing developed as she wrote many unique reports and surveys about the deaf population, their education and their families.
Susan's early background in military nursing, youth work, academia, researching and helping deaf children and living a rural lifestyle with chickens, goats and ducks etc whilst rearing a family and supporting a husband in a dangerous world of IRA shopotings and bombings is fascinating. She did not realise just how odd her life had seemed until the press became amazed when she said that she had slept with a gun under her pillow for many years whilst living in Northern Ireland.
The traumatic and much publicised death of her husband and both parents, within months of each other, became a catalyst for her to research complimentary therapies for the treatment of depression across the world. By using ancient healing techniques and the power of mind, body and soul over personal growth she became committed to sharing the non-chemical path to wholeness and renewed happiness. Her dislike of long term tranquilising drugs in everyday life committed her to help those in grief find the natural way to cope with life's varied traumas. She questions the indiscriminate use of chemotherapy after watching her sister suffer unnecessarily in her final journey.
A lover of team work- she has collaborated with other professionals to motivate and inspire in meditation workshops and personal development groups to help grief and loss in general.
She writes and travels worldwide from her home in Spain, to visit her children and four grandchildren whilst raising awareness of the individual soul's healing powers. Her interest in scientific research where physicists consider world consciousness, it's energy field and how it is affected by the individual's energy from the mind/body/soul interaction has shaped her clinical work and her personal writings.

She has hosted workshops in ITALY, IRELAND, SPAIN and FRANCE.
