I’m Susan Chernak McElroy, author of Animals as Teachers and Healers and a host of other books that explore our sacred and wonder-filled relationships with animals and nature. I write to entice people into an unexpectedly deeper relationship with all of our relations: Furred, winged, leafy, and all the rest. I blog with stories, tips, and projects for expressing that deeper relationship close to home. For the first time in my adult life, I now live close in, in a small 1930 mill house a few short blocks from the center of town.
