Stepping up to a Happy Stepfamily is the culmination of a heartfelt focus on the topic that has endured for many years. As a stepmother, therapist and researcher, Blythe has a profound understanding of the challenges stepfamilies face and she is determined to share her message of hope with people struggling with the demands of managing an “instant family.”

Blythe Ward, Author of Stepping up to a Happy Stepfamily

“As a first-time writer, it was a daunting task to have confidence in my abilities to communicate my ideas for a book. Once I had written my draft I was fortunate indeed to engage the services of Susan Crossman as my editor. She was much more than an editor as she took time both to meet with me, understand both my project and my communication style. She worked within that framework to provide ideas, edits and overall encouragement. The result – a published book.

If you’re looking for an editor who will meet with you, understand your project, provide ideas, professionally edit your work and encourage you throughout then Susan Crossman is your choice.”
