This time on the podcast, a special conversation with former RMFW Writer of the Year Susan Spann—currently immersed in a non-fiction project in Japan.

Susan is in the middle of a personal journey, one she is documenting for a book based on her ascents up the 100 highest summits in the land of rising sun.

The adventure is based, in Susan’s own words, on the desire to stop doing what was safe and what was expected of her.

Well, mission accomplished.

But the planning and work to move from California to Japan hit a major hurdle when Susan was diagnosed with cancer. Undaunted, Susan forged through months of cancer treatments and even visa issues and today is travelling all over Japan conquering summits and recording her climbs for the book.

Work on the non-fiction book is also helping with her fiction—Susan’s award-winning mystery series features sixteenth-century ninja detective Hiro Hattori and Portuguese Jesuit Father Mateo.

One quick note: at about three-minutes into this interview we lost a few words from Susan due to the Skype connection or something but stay with it, you should be able to piece together what Susan is saying.
