My name is Susann Stjernborg, born in Sweden during late 50's.
I am in the IT business and spend far too many hours in front
of a computer. IT is en ever challenging adventure, new stuff
to learn every day, you never get bored. And the pay is good
As a 21 year
old who knew nothing of life, I very stupidly got married.
It is the height of luxuary, to live alone. You decide what to do, when to do it and if you want to do it at all. Selfish you will say; yes, I probably am but at least I admit it and can say "I am doing it my way".
To be single
is a blessing, but then I am not totally alone.
Work, dogs and of course Internet, takes most of my time, but there is often time for a good sf book as well. Socialising is mostly done in cyber space, not so much in Real Life. Working full time, taking care of dogs and yourself does not leave that much of Real Life left anyway.
From May until
October most weekends and vacation time (we do have a lot of
vacation time in Sweden, 25 days by law for everyone) are spent
in my summer cottage on an island in the Stockholm archipelago.
My life changed
in 1988 when my first Borzoi came to live with me, an old retired
Borzoi lady, S Ch Shamaanin Marfa. To stop myself from being
tempted to breed, I've kept only Borzoi males since Marfa.
During spring 2001 I will embark on a new adventure, start another epoch of my life and become a Breeder. And to be the first breeder in Europe of Silken Windhounds, a rare breed, in a country that do not even accept the concept of rare breeds - that is a challenge indeed!
