You probably think you know me. I have one of those very familiar faces, the kind that compels strangers to approach me and ask, “Don’t I know you from somewhere?” Other people will scrunch up their foreheads, squint and say, “I’m sure we’ve met before.” I’ve encountered some very interesting people because they’ve thought I was someone else.

Check out my bio to decide if you know me for real. If you do, get in touch by hitting my contact button; I’d love to hear from you.

If you’re someone I don’t know yet, likewise, feel free to drop my a line to say hello or to book me for a school visit, workshop, or other presentation.

And, if you’re too shy to talk or write to a “famous” author, join me on social media by clicking on the cute icons below because, you know, I’m a little shy myself.

To the Post Office with Mama

A daily walk to the post office in a small town is always fun, but it’s especially delightful when Mama isn’t in a hurry.

To the Pool with Mama

Going to the swimming pool is an adventure, especially when you are small enough to fit in the lockers and stand beneath the hair dryer.

Lacey Little Bird is a 12-year-old girl from the Siksika First Nation in Alberta, who likes to spend time with her grandmother.

Sue held a writers’ workshop for our Junior High Students, and she did a fabulous job! For nearly an hour, students were engaged in the writing process. Many students were beyond excited to share their stories with me during and after the workshop. Sue was really able to beat the ‘writers block,’ through use of effective writing prompts that complement the English class perfectly I would highly recommend Sue for any literacy program.
