Susan J. Lundy has written two books. Home on the Strange: Chronicles of Motherhood, Mayhem and Matters of the Heart, published by Heritage House, is a collection of humour stories pulled from years of column-writing for magazines and newspapers. Heritage Apples: A New Sensation, is a journey of heritage apple discovery, published in 2013. After spending 25 years as a journalist and newspaper editor, Susan is currently managing editor of the Boulevard Magazine Group. She also oversees a number of smaller regional magazines, including Oak Bay’s Tweed magazine and the Saanich Peninsula’s Pearl magazine. Susan has won more than two dozen feature writing awards from Canadian and regional newspaper associations, as well as the International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors. She is a two-time recipient of the prestigious Jack Webster Award. In her travel and lifestyle articles, she has written about her experiences in places from Jamaica to New York City, and closer to home on Salt Spring island.

Home on the Strange: Chronicles of Motherhood, Mayhem, and Matters of the Heart is Susan’s second book. “Her passion for writing—mostly humour, travel and creative non-fiction these days—merges with her love of family in this collection of humourous and touching stories. Of Home on the Strange, Susan says: “My life is peppered with amusing experiences that beg to be put into stories. I’ve also experienced some trauma, including my daughter’s cycling accident and my husband’s heart attack. These are the types of slice-of-life situations—some poignant, most amusing—that are compiled in this book. It is a true labour of love.”
