“If you’d like to get unstuck in your life and enjoy a greater flow of creativity, read Susan Borkin’s books. Gently and wisely the exercises and commentary facilitate your self-awareness and growth. Inspiring!”

--Marcia Yudkin, author Persuading on Paper and 10 other books.

What readers of When Your Heart Speaks are saying:

"Susan Borkin has written a wonderful book on healing oneself through writing. The 70 exercises are clear and concise. I have shared this book with a number of women in my creative women's group as well as women I do a writing workshop with and they are as enthusiastic as I am. I am ordering 2 more copies today for a friend that wants to give them as gifts to her daughter and sister."

--Susan Shumaker, Hingham, MA

"With wit and a delightful sense of humor, Ms. Borkin takes you on a journey to a better "you" though stories, exercises and powerful information. She has a way of cutting deftly to the heart of your own human frailty and yet leaves you entirely in control of your journey to health and a more fulfilling life. I know I'll go back to this book again and again."
