About the author
Suzanne was born in Eau Claire, WI. She practiced law for a decade in New York and Chicago. Following the death of her first husband, she changed careers to help people navigate through complex health care needs. Born with a chronic illness, Suzanne was unable to be active like other kids. She often felt 'different,' and spent a lot of time alone. She has always loved animals, and as a child she imagined a horse living in her backyard. At age 50, Suzanne bought a foal named Hercules (a/k/a/ Li'L Herc), to "take back her childhood." What she found was just that – the more time she spent with the horse, the more she discovered the happy little girl who had waited a lifetime to emerge. Through this relationship, she experienced emotional growth and the healing of her inner child. Suzanne had early goals of becoming a teacher because of her love of children, although not having had any of her own due to her illness. Li'L Herc has allowed Suzanne to combine her love of horses and children through the books that she will publish. Her goal of taking Li'L Herc from pasture to paper is to bring joy, learning and healing to people of all ages.
