We'd like to welcome our newest author from Saskatchewan, Susan Hathiramani! We are working with Susan to produce a colouring book and future books for her children's book, "The Wizard of Hawarden." You can find Susan's other works on Amazon. Welcome Susan! Susan is also on Facebook.
Bio: Susan grew up on a farm near the Boreal Forest in Saskatchewan. At an early age, she developed a love for drawing, gymnastics, horses, and being outdoors with nature. After graduating from Business College, she moved to the North West Territories and worked as Travel Agent at Northland Travel. After a year passed by, she missed her family and living on the prairies. Then she decided to move back to rural Saskatchewan in 1990.
At the age of twenty-six, she met her future husband, John Ewert, who was the owner of a kitchen manufacturing company in Alvena, Saskatchewan. After a few conversations, she discovered they had both worked as Visual Merchandisers for the Eaton’s Department store in the 1980s. Then after having a cup of coffee with John, she discovered they had both shared the same Supervisor, Al Dyck, even though they had both worked in different cities. She was delighted to find out he was the display person who had set up the ‘Once Upon a Christmas’ display at the Eaton’s store in Saskatoon. In addition, John worked on the display until it was dismantled, and moved to a museum in Saskatoon. You can see the display during the Christmas season at the “Western Development Museum" in Saskatoon.
After they moved to Saskatoon, they met each once again and began dating. Then after two years passed by, they decided to make it official and were married on October 28, 1991. Throughout their years of marriage, they enjoyed sharing many common threads with each other. They both had a passion for owning small businesses. In addition, during their marriage, they enjoyed creating art, gardening, nature hikes, politics, photography and renovating old houses.
In 2004, they moved to Hawarden after a series of financial setbacks. Their friend, Gordo Pederson found them a 1906 church that was for sale. Then they sold their home in Saskatoon and purchased the former United Church of Hawarden and an Eaton's catalogue house. Together they renovated both places. After three years of living in the village of Hawarden, John decided to retire from making cabinets when his contract with ‘Pleasure-Way Industries’ was finished.
During his retirement years, he began to design a small compact wind turbine engine. He was not able to finish this project since his health began to decline. After two years of health problems, he was finally, diagnosed with terminal cancer. John lost his battle with cancer on October 24, 2007, when he passed from this world to the next, leaving, only his memories and recollections in all of our hearts.
Susan decided to have her stories illustrated, and through the internet, she found Karen Zvorc Illustration Inc. Karen agreed to illustrate the short stories, and she has magically created all of the lovely illustrations in this storybook.
