About the author

Susan Barclay Nichols is a family support worker living and working in the Fraser Valley, B.C., Canada.  She stumbled upon a recipe for bath bombs and became obsessed with creating bath and body products. This is when her extreme interest in chemistry began. 

In 2009, she started Point of Interest, a bath and body products blog to share her love of creating products, and it somehow turned into a series of four e-books she wrote to raise money for the youth groups she and her husband run at their local libraries.

Her favorite hobbies – other than creating bath and body products – include sewing, trivia, criticizing and correcting people’s grammar and spelling, and striving to achieve expert status on bass in Rock Band 3. She lives with her wonderful husband, Raymond and their adorable dog, Sasja.
