Author Sue Cooper was born in Liverpool, England in 1960.While raising her two children, Nicola and Matthew, she launched a successful career in horticulture and garden design. Fate soon played its hand when her husband, Michael, suffered a heart attack. His time in the hospital, observing Sue in the role of care giver, prompted him to nudge her back into nursing, a career she had given up when her children were born. She currently works as an Intensive Care nurse, and is also a spiritual healer, drawing from yogic healing techniques. In 2003 Sue and her husband were drawn to move to the Isle of Man, a small island in the middle of the Irish Sea, with an ancient spiritual legacy left by the Celts and Druids. She has recently, by popular demand, begun a Raja Yoga meditation group on the island. Inspired by teachings Paramhansa Yogananda, and the writings of several of his disciples including Swami Kriyananda, she began chronicling her own spiritual experiences in the form of poetry. Touching Soul is her first book.
