About Susie Carter
Matchmaker and Magazine Publisher
Susie wasn’t always an editor and a publisher, but
she was always a matchmaker. As a child her school
friends relied on her help to pass love notes and
information to boys and girls who took a liking to each
other. Little did she know then that she would
eventually become famous for continuing to do the same
thing later in life.
After she was married and her own
family grew, she became a foster mother with a big heart
who could never turn away another homeless child. She
always had a houseful of her own children and up to 10
foster children along with them. She loved and
cared for everyone one of her many foster care charges
as if they were her own.
Work took her family to Alaska and the Alaska
Pipeline, and she opened a Day Care Center for pre-schoolers.
She soon found she had mostly single fathers bringing
their children for her care. Then Susie, started doing
what was natural to her, looking for wives for all those
One day she laughingly mentioned that she should make
a magazine for those single fathers like they do for
used cars, only having “slightly used men, with a lot of
tread left on them.” She found that there were lots of
men who wanted her help finding wives. The rest is
history, her first issue of lonely men launched her into
TV shows where she took her men along in hopes of
finding wives for them.
The magazine flourished, but then her own marriage
ended. Undaunted by it all, Susie found the best way to
make sure her ex-husband was happy, and that was to find him a
wife. With his permission, she put him on the cover of
her Magazine, and soon he was writing to women all over
the world and off the available list.
Several years later, Pat, her husband to be, came
into her office for a business appointment regarding her
website. Susie says,
“I didn’t believe it was possible, but as soon as I saw
him I knew he was the man I had been waiting for all my
life. Everyone always asks me if he was in the magazine!
And No, he wasn’t! When we met it changed both of our
lives. That’s exactly the kind of love that I want to
help others find.”
Now, Susie fills her time interviewing men nominated
from around the world to appear in AlaskaMen. She’s
always advising men and women and staying quite busy
working at her calling as a matchmaker. Through her
website she is able to expand her magazine’s reach
throughout the world and bring more couples together,
even faster. She takes groups of men around the world
appearing on TV and radio shows.
One of her favorite rewards is attending all of the
marriages she attends. She has helped bring about many
of those, and the romantic mother inside her loves to
hear about the new babies. She especially likes to hear
from the friends and relatives who nominate their single
men for future issues. She listens to them and promises
to help their nominee find their soulmate.
Susie is also now, and has been for some time, a
sought-after consultant for TV shows and magazines.
Besides writing the magazine and answering calls she is
writing a book about her life with AlaskaMen and her own
Her husband, Patrick is an Alaskan homesteader and
former dog musher. He originally went searching for
adventure in Alaska when he was 20 years old. His
dream was to live in the wilderness, mush dogs, and make
a home in the Last Frontier. He did it, and along the
way he finally found Susie, the woman of his dreams.
