|| As a writer, teacher and boating enthusiast for over 30 years, Ms. Artof writes from personal experience and passion, filling her books with warmth, wit and information. She holds a Masters degree in psychology from CSUN and achieved an Ab.D. (all but dissertation) in Education from UCLA. Both experiences gave her the tools to teach psychology at Santa Monica College for 23 years before she turned full time to writing. Dr. Knoh is Ms. Artof's alter ego complete with a Ph.D. (Piled Higher and Deeper) degree and a fresh approach into the crazy world of psychology. Her more serious side is experienced in her well received Writing For Pleasure book that has been used in psychology classes as the basis of developing a more personal understanding of how we can achieve personal growth through writing.
Ms. Artof’s newest title is Running On Empty – Walking On Fire: Sketches of Contemporary Life. This book of essays and stories explores the world and community with wisdom and irony with an eye towards the need for passion in one’s personal life.
Known within the national boating world as an active contributor to junior sailing and yacht club management, Susan has led seminars and classes beyond the college classroom. Her books on boating, including Sailing: A Parent’s Guide To Junior Sailing have been adopted by sailing programs throughout the country. The best selling Boat Naming Made Simple has made Susan the boat naming expert wherever she travels. Both books capture the warmth and dedication of her writing style.
Ms. Artof is currently working on three new projects including an update to her classic Boat Naming Made Simple: The Complete Book and her unique Writing For Pleasure. These books are expected to be published next year.
