Suzanne is the award-winning author of more than 100 children's books,

an adoptive mother, and a mechanical engineer who worked on rockets.

She often writes about STEM women (A. Comstock, K. Johnson, J. Almeida),

her hometown Chicago heroes (G. Brooks, J. Addams, H. Globetrotters),

Wonderful Educators & Librarians: You are incredible! I applaud your

herculean efforts during this difficult time. As a small thank you, I created a few videos to share with students whenever you wish!
