Susan is a proud Manitoban with two Bachelors of Education degrees, majoring in Speech Pathology, Audiology & Elementary Education.
Great Plains Publications has published two of her teen novels. She loves talking to kids and adults about writing and was recently invited to speak at the Writer’s Festival, Word on the Water in Kenora Ontario (October 2011). She writes in a variety of genres, but prefers writing for kids.
Her novels, Withershins and Spirit Quest were both set in Manitoba and explored the question, what would happen if a modern teen was transported to the mid-eighteen hundreds? Her extensive research was presented in an informative yet entertaining manner, with the hopes of sparking a love of local history in her readership.
She has been a Writer’s Guild member for more than 15 years and belongs to the eclectic writer’s group Off The Wall.
