Living on Three Spoons

a memoir of a single parent 

Living on Three Spoons takes the reader on a journey through Susan's battles from a drug-infested, abusive childhood to her struggles to maintain emotional balance as a teenage single parent. Born in New York, Susan, a fiery Hispanic Brooklynite, chronicles the lessons she learned and applied to fight back against oppressive forces.

As a young teen mom, Susan leaves behind the father of her daughters and thrives as a hardworking single parent with the hope of changing the course of her life. Years later, she attempts marriage again and has two more children. Ultimately, single parenthood became a designed choice. With meager emotional and financial means, she faces defeat by using ingenuity and raw courage to forge a life for herself and her four children.

This riveting story carries the reader from Brooklyn, to Puerto Rico, to the cultural immersion of living in the Middle East, culminating in a return to New York City.
