Susan grew up in the heart of Greenwich Village in NYC. As a kid she kept a piece of chalk in her pocket (for spontaneous hopscotch) and her skate key around her neck, ready for the next adventure. She found inspiration everywhere and loved to write all about it!
Now Susan lives by the sea in East Hampton, New York with her 3 children and their dog, Gizmo. She still finds inspiration everywhere and writes it all down!
In addition to writing books for kids she also teaches yoga and mindfulness to children of all ages. She is a yogi herself and is still working on her headstand.
Her award-winning stories ranging from museum visits and yoga to lifelong friendships and hope celebrate the unique voices and experiences of kids and inspire adults to let their own inner child out…maybe for a spontaneous game of hopscotch every now and then. Susan’ books have been translated into multiple languages.
