Susie Salom is the new kid on the block, and she’s knockin’ on doors looking to make friends. A former educator, copy editor and columnist, Susie’s first-and-always love is words. They are a way to sponsor realities, to fire the inner actualizing mechanism she believes is standard-issue in the kit of every human being. She’s big on the muscular power of metaphor to engineer quirky bridges to illumination — foremost among them personal and group potential — and is stoked about the privilege of encouraging the upcoming generation and its devoted, sometimes unsung, educators in this capacity. Her message to potential hosts? Bring it. She’ll talk to anyone who will listen.
Kyle Finds Her Way, the story of a sixth-grade girl in a lucky blue fedora who learns by trial and considerable error to pull guidance and self-direction from her hat full of stars, is Susie's debut novel. For more information about the book, see the reviews from Kirkus Reviews and Publishers Weekly.
Susie currently lives in El Paso, Texas. She speaks fluent Spanish. Susie loves sunny, chirpy days, strawberry tamales and the color blue. She once purposely got on the wrong bus to keep talking to a new friend on her first day of sixth grade and has been following her adventuresome heart ever since.
