A note from Lisa, Two Roads Publisher

It was an absolute privilege to meet Susan and work with her on her amazing book. She was one of the most joyful and honest people I have ever met, with an enormous sense of fun and an utterly beautiful smile.

Susan was completely thrilled by what was happening with her book worldwide and so interested in

We are proud to announce a new acquisition for our spring list, UNTIL I SAY GOODBYE: My Year of Living With Joy by Susan Spencer-Wendel with Bret Witter.

Susan Spencer-Wendel, mango party, BREATHE DEEPLY

Susan and her husband John during a 'mango party' at their Florida home

Diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in 2011, journalist and mother of three, Susan Spencer-Wendel was determined to make every day count with her friends and family. And, as a writer, her response is to write about it, with the support of Bret Witter, of DEWEY fame.

Described as THE LAST LECTURE for women, UNTIL I SAY GOODBYE is both the story of Susan’s determination to make the most of these final days and a series of inspirational reflections. Her end-of-life bucket list has taken her, so far, to the Yukon to see the northern lights; Northern

California to see her birth mother; Budapest, where she and her husband spent the first two years of their marriage; Cyprus, to connect with her birth father’s family; and New York with her 14-year-old daughter to visit a bridal shop . . . for a future moment she can never share.

Lisa met Susan when she was in London, recently, and listened to Susan’s husband, John, reading out a moving extract from the book. Because of the progression of her illness, Susan’s now writing it all on her iPhone. But her skills as a writer are unimpaired, and her spirit, feisty humour and love of life shine through on every page.

This is a very special project – moving and inspirational – and we’re thrilled to be Susan’s publisher, along with seventeen other publishers around the world. Like THE LAST LECTURE and TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, UNTIL I SAY GOODBYE is sure to touch people and remind them what matters in life, however long or short the time we have.

‘I’m glad people are moved. I’m happy {to} have stumbled, accidently, on something that crystallizes what it means to be a family, to grow up, to dream, to die, but more importantly to live fully and joyfully.’ Susan Spencer-Wendel
