Hi there, it's Susan Gast non-fiction author here!

Since 2010, I've been glued to my chair, staring at various computer screens, and gone almost cross-eyed in the process.

Why? Well, first of all, I love to write. And to be honest, it all started with my desire to have my own website!

My host is the best. SoloBuild It. (Formerly named SBI). I love the thrill of setting websites up. Then comes the hard work. Making them viable!  Also, since 2010, I've been creating books. Lots of them. Did I say I enjoy creating things?

This website is dedicated to the books (not all!) that I have available for sale on Amazon.com under Author Susan Gast.

You can read more about me HERE but I'm hoping you'll find my books, below, far more interesting!

While living in the United Kingdom, my dad was an avid recycler. Not just plastic bottles and glass jars. Nope. His forte was demolishing old factories, and tearing up old railway lines and 'sleepers.'

It was hard work, and he loved it. He decided to "write what he knows" and "A Fortune in Scrap" was born. I'm so happy to have published that book for him.

Wanna know what it's like "Living on Acreage"? My hubby tried his hand at penning a book. From the trials and tribulations of cutting grass, and filling potholes in the driveway, to chasing bulls, his book details our adventure of living "in the sticks."

I am VERY proud of my Sobriety books. I quit the booze over 25 years ago ~ and it was one of the best decisions ever (well, that and marrying my hubby!) There are four "quit-boozing books" shown below.

Sobriety books

Get Help with Your Alcohol Addiction.

Food + Diet Related

I'm also a "professional dieter," having been on lots of diets in my life, and the diet that actually worked? It was Finally Keto! So I brag about that too (and created a site just about it: finallyketo.com

My book and website journey all started with my desire to teach people how to Dehydrate Food. Hence the "birth" of "Easy Food Dehydrating" which is still running strong (since 2010!)

Food + Diet-Related books

Food and Diet Stuff for Humans and Dogs!

With the rising popularity of Audio Books, I had to "have a go." After setting up a recording booth (see info. below), I narrated two Audio Books: "You Can Quit Drinking," and "Easy Food Dehydrating."

Audio Books

You Can Quit Drinking... if you want to on Audible

I'm very proud to announce my very first audiobook. It's called, "You Can Quit Drinking... if you want to" and yes, it's about quitting the booze.

My habit lasted a little over two decades but you don't have to wait that long to quit drinking!

I haven't touched a drop since January 17, 1998, and this audiobook (and related eBooks and Paperbacks in the 'Sobriety Help menu) covers the topic in detail. I'm here for you!

Easy Food Dehydrating Audio Book

This is my second audiobook.

If you'd like to know how to safely store and dehydrate fresh or frozen foods, please check out this audiobook:
Easy Food Dehydrating and Safe Food Storage

and it's available HERE!

Ever Wondered HOW to Narrate Your Own Books?

I had a total blast making the audiobook. If it's something you think you'd like to tackle too, then please consider taking Derek Doepker's course called Audiobooks Made Easy or click HERE to read more about it!

It's actually the first course I've ever TOTALLY finished!

For a limited time, Derek's offering 20% off the entire course... here's your link to go check it out. Of course, I'm an affiliate! This program helped me produce my first 6-hour and 28-minute audiobook right FIRST TIME OUT THE GATE!

Without Derek's course, I would have been clueless as to what settings to use while recording, how to set up a recording booth, and how and where to sell the finished product.
