Susan Orlins

Award-winning journalist Susan Orlins is author of the recently published memoir, Confessions of a Worrywart: Husbands, Lovers, Mothers, and Others, a deeply personal story, told with comical sensibility by a quirky, startlingly honest mother, daughter, ex-wife, inveterate therapy patient, and dog lover, who—à la Nora Ephron—will feel like a dear friend. A divorced mother of three grown daughters, Orlins lives in Washington, D.C., where she conducts a writing workshop for the homeless. Learn more at
