Hello Penny, welcome to the boards.

If you want to contact Sue then the best way to do so is to click on her name to send a direct message - that's the way contact is made, not by email. It's against Gene's terms & conditions to post email addresses (it's not a secure site) so it would be better if you edit your post to remove it.

Good luck with making contact.
