Hello there, everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by.
Formally, I’m a blogger/freelance writer/social media consultant. Informally, I’m a procrastinator/coffee lover/amateur photographer/runner/world traveler (I wish). And most importantly, I’m a woman, a mom, and a believer.
Zealous Mom posts have been featured on Parenting Magazine’s website and Disney’s Spoonful website. I have also guest blogged for Mom it Forward, Go Grow Go , and If Only They’d Told Me.
As a writer, contributions include monthly columns/articles in WNC Parent, Asheville Citizen-Times, and The Mountaineer Newspaper. I work with a number of web design firms to write web copy, newsletters, blog posts and manage social media. One of my favorite gigs at the moment is my personal column in Smoky Mountain News.
I was honored to speak about freelance writing at the annual Type-A blog conference in Atlanta last year and guest appear on WSPA Your Carolina out of Greenville, SC. Most recently, I recorded a video piece for Today Parenting.

My family loves to hike, dine outside, and trot the globe (as much as we can with two little ones). I love being a mom and am interested in all things parent-related.
I hope you enjoy this blog. My goal is to entertain, inspire, and connect with moms, dads, grandparents, guardians, teachers, and any other adults fortunate enough to have a child in their lives. If you want to contact me personally, shoot me an email at [email protected]

Hey Susanna! It’s Tiffany (Hensley) Edwards! Hope you are doing well! I stumbled across your blog on Pinterest and thought I’d say hello! Your babies are adorable! Look forward to seeing more posts!
Hi! I tried to find you on FB but to no avail. Are you on there? Nonetheless, I hope your little one is doing well. She’s over a year old now, isn’t she? That’s crazy. It’s good to hear from you.
Sorry, I don’t have a FB account. Yes our little girl is 15 months old! I love being a mommy and I’m ready for another baby! It’s crazy how time flies! We should get with some friends and have a playdate sometime! Take care!
Hey, Susanna! This is Deborah, from way back in the day at Stoney Knob! I saw your article about fall in WNC and loved it- it’s my favorite season too! Your family is beautiful and I would love to reconnect! We live in Black Mountain now and have 3 children and I just started homeschooling my oldest, which is exciting. I’ll look for you on FB- love the blog!
Hello there, pretty lady! It is so wonderful to hear from you and to hear that you are doing so well. I would also love to reconnect. I’m on all social media sites, so we’ll find one another somehow. Black Mountain is a beautiful place to raise a family. Hope to talk to you soon!
