A Note From Susan

My latest book, YOUR VOICE MATTERS: STAND UP, SPEAK OUT, shines a light on the hopes, concerns, passions, and all-too-rare honesty of some of the leading young voices of our time. It also features contemporary leaders offering "find your voice" guidance, such as Michelle Obama, Oprah, Princes William and Harry, Stephen Colbert, and more.

What if we listened to the next generation and really focused on what they have to say? Or saw through their eyes what they experience each day? After capturing stories and opinions from dozens of young people around the world the past year, I am convinced of one thing: their wisdom--far beyond their years--will light the path to a better world.

Come listen to them. Let their brave voices inspire yours. And if you're in the next generation, I hope this book helps you speak your own truth, stand up for yourself, and advocate for causes close to your heart. Your voice can make all the difference. This is your time to rise up, say what you have to say, spark change, right wrongs, and protect the planet!

Welcome!


I'm an author, speaker, and freelance journalist. My latest book, YOUR VOICE MATTERS: STAND UP, SPEAK OUT, amplifies some of today's leading young voices speaking out about gun control, climate change, bullying, immigration, racism, activism, LGBTQ rights, and the right to be their authentic selves.  

I felt compelled to write this young adult book to help you speak your own truth with greater power, confidence, and impact, whether you advocate for yourself, others, or a larger cause. It also includes inspiration and guidance from sage voices, like Michelle Obama, Princes Harry and William, Oprah Winfrey, and many others.    

I hope this book helps you find and use your own voice with great confidence, power, and impact. I can’t wait to hear what you have to say!

Warmly, Susan
