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
