Coming Soon!
The Portuguese Camino…


In April 2024, I set out on a Camino with old friends and new. This was on the Portuguese Camino, and we did a different take on it, as we moved from one path to another. As we plunge ahead, it is the human spirit to ignore disasters and say the life goes on..after all, only in this generation have we been gifted with unprecedented health and material wealth. And also with unprecedented power for good or evil. That’s sobering.
Walking The Camino is a privilege, and walking it with friends is a different kind of magic. The Camino Portuguese was busier, more challenging and more adventurous than expected – so I know this book will give readers something new to read about the Camino.

The full name is not decided yet. Why not? Because I have no idea how it will turn out..will be a guide book, a memoir, a combination or some new kind of book? I’ve no idea, but I do know the readers are waiting, and indeed my camino companions gave a deadline that I have already missed. Sigh, I’m glad my readers are not so demanding as some of my friends! Please join my early reader’s team, as I need your help and support!

The camino, the trails, and the mountains are not going anywhere, but we humans are fragile, and I am happy to report that my winter camino with friends was hard, challenging and utterly gorgeous. In hard times, let’s pray for the courage to go on, and by the end, to leave some legacy of our fleeting time on this fragile, one-of-a-kind creation.

What is new with me, is that you can now work with me to write your own non-fiction book. In 2022, everyone who worked with me, had at least one bestselling book – and some of them had two. Like Rebecca, Roy, Drew, Adam, Mary or Meera – This could be you in 2024.

As a bestselling author and author mentor, my technical expertise supercharges my passion for storytelling. The Camino, a significant chapter in my life, taught me that monumental journeys are not just about the destination but every single step along the way. It’s this philosophy I infuse into my books and mentorship, guiding aspiring authors to find their path, one word at a time.

Join me in discovering that every change, every challenge, every adventure is an opportunity to create a story worth telling. Join the tribe to stay in touch, learn about new adventures, or just to say hello. You can usually find me in on various social media, that is when I am not writing another book. Or you can connect with me directly.



Hello, Hola, Namaste


It’s Susan here. Thrilled to meet you.

As a writer, I feel close to the hikers who read my books, and follow the trails, so my books get updated regularly. A new book is on its way – about the Portuguese Camino, that I walked in April 2024, with friends old and new.

Adventures that anyone can do are my passion. I love challenges – especially busting myths and records and my own fears. And this year we have all faced challenges of a different kind. What are yours? As a technical writer, I’ve navigated the intricate world of technology, authoring over 50 manuals that illuminate complex systems with clarity. My life, an adventurous odyssey since childhood, has been shaped by constantly changing landscapes. From a childhood where change was constant (I was a military brat) to the majestic trails of the Himalayas and Camino, each step has been a testament to the power of change and the beauty of the journey.



Readers like You Say

Being from Galicia myself, I was struck by how authentic Susan’s book is.

It helped me walk this route, and I especially like that Susan encourages pilgrims to learn a little Spanish to enjoy the Camino more.

A comprehensive guide

To this centuries old, lesser known route, it takes you from Ferrol to Santiago de Compostela. For those people unable to garner the month often needed for the Camino Frances, or those not sure of their physical capability, the Camino Ingles is a brilliant answer.

Susan Jagannath’s book is the ideal companion.

I liked the way she began each chapter with an apt quotation. Essential reading for the prospective pilgrim!

Sanjiva, Professor and Adventurer

I want to walk these trails

Susan’s adventures are so authentic, they leave me longing to go. It’s so good to read of this adventure, you feel as if you were there with her, a great escape for these times when many of us cannot travel to far off, or even near destinations.

Where myth and geography meet

Both a practical guide and dream guide for armchair travelers, Susan Jagannath’s account of 4 Indian women following in the footsteps of British mountaineer Frank Smythe is at once entertaining and inspirational. I loved her inside look at trekking and pilgrimage, chai stops, pilgrim huts and intimate reflections.

Daian H.

Full of practical hints and detailed information, delivered with a lightness of touch that draws the reader in. Barriers, obstacles are lowered. The reader reassured, encouraged that this route is both achievable and immensely rewarding. To walk any Camino route changes one, bringing treasured memories. So, thank you, Susan, for bringing information on the beauty of this route to so many of us.
