Suzan Crane Freelance writer, nomad

In March 2003, former music industry PR executive Suzan Crane took a leap of faith that irrevocably changed her life when she traded in her Hollywood Hills home and lifestyle for a backpack and one-way ticket. Her nomadic journey has spanned six continents -- taking her from the jungles of Borneo to the Ecuadorian Amazon, from the Australian outback to the grasslands of Inner Mongolia, from living with the Bedouins in Jordan to shacking up with a former sadhu in India.

Although temporarily based in Costa Rica where she designs an internationally-inspired line of handcrafted jewelryand continues a freelance writing career, she insists that no permanent address figures into her immediate or not so immediate future, the Global Gypsy lifestyle suiting her just fine, thank you.
