The writer and her dog giving themselves permission to be silly.

An answerer of calls, SL Sourwine has returned to Canada after 23 years away.  She's replanting herself on the edge of the Rocky Mountains and looking out on the Great Plains of her childhood.  


In 2019 she answered another call and moved to a sweet cottage on the edge of Loch Fyne in Scotland for three years.  It led to an unprecedented adventure in rewilding her own life and entering into a deep relationship with the landscape around her.   A book of her first year of Letters from The Gardeners Cottage is now available.  The land of that place had a lot of lessons and stories for her though and she's now trying to turn them into a work of fiction.   This involves lots of walking with her Old English Sheepdog companion Alfred who is so far enjoying emigration to Canada. 


Before Returning and Rewilding, SL Sourwine built a twenty-year career in international horse racing with only her passion for horses, the sport, and an English degree. Her experiences ranged from being the volunteer flower gardener at the tiniest of courses in Saskatchewan, Canada to being involved with a winner at Royal Ascot.  Going on to start her own consulting company, the freedom to work on innovative projects led her to founding a new technology company and to finally start to get some books out of her head and onto paper. 

Susie is passionate about shedding the internal systems that keep people from reaching for the life and work they want.  Her first book A Little Book of Permission and the short audio course on How to Give Yourself Permission is a simple way to get started on the journey to your dreams.  She also tackles bringing the concept of Permission and how to centre consent for those working as mentors and coaches.  These days Susie applies twenty years of marketing and strategic experience at the apex of one of the wealthiest industries in the world with her passion to help women succeed and impact the world in a positive way.
