by Designer Susana Maria Rosende
Welcome to Write Way Designs by Susana Maria Rosende.
The creative force behind Write Way Designs is Susana Maria Rosende, a Cuban-American who resides in Orlando, Florida with her two talented sons, five rambunctious dogs, two mellow cats, two complacent fish, one singing parakeet, and a good sense of humor.
Susana's wacky sense of humor is evident when she uses the photographs she took during Hurricane Charley to sell her Cafe Press products. (See Hurricane Charley). Susana explains, "The insurance didn't cover all the damage Hurricane Charley did to my home. If I can use Hurricane Charley to earn the money I need to fix the damage and remodel, it will not only be ironic, but poetic justice." Pensively, she adds, "You know, when life offers you lemons, you have no choice but to make lemonade."
Susana knows about survival in the face of adversity. Her role models were her parents, who left Cuba in 1962, with two babies and only one suitcase of clothing. Susana was one of those babies.
"My parents were determined to start over in the United States," she reminices, adding that 1962 was the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis, a difficult time for Cuban-Americans trying to find work. "At the age of 35, my father was an educated, bilingual college graduate and a civil engineer with 12 years experience. But, despite the posted job ads and his credentials, nobody would hire him. Like many educated immigrants before him, he started over, as a land surveyor, to provide for his family until he eventually found an engineering job."
A graduate of the University of Central Florida (UCF) with a degree in English/Technical Writing and a minor in Visual Arts, Susana Maria Rosende is a technical writer, web author, and artist. She has over two decades of experience in the technical writing field and is a Senior Member of the Society for Technical Communication (STC - Orlando Chapter), and the IEEE Professional Communications Society (PCS).

Away from the confines of her day job as a Technical Writer in the corporate environment, Susana feels she can truly be creative and innovative through her communications company, Write Way Designs, which in addition to technical writing, includes copy writing, photography, photojournalism, creative writing, technical translation (English/Spanish, English/Mandarin, English/French), cartooning, illustration, website design and programming, software engineering, music composition, film scoring, and more, in addition to T-shirt design.

When asked if she plans to grow her freelance business into a full-time venture, she smiles and replies, "One can always dream!"
The folks at Cafe Press believe this talented and determined single mother will make her dreams come true!
