When Suzanne Williams was a child, she wanted to be an artist, but her drawings always told stories. As an adult, she became a teacher. Williams learned to observe her students, assess their needs, and respect their individuality. Twenty-five years later, Suzanne is an author of twelve published books, fiction and nonfiction, for ages eight and up. Her novel Bull Rider won the Western Heritage Award from the National Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, and was nominated for several state award lists. She loves researching and writing, as well as connecting and sharing with students, writers, teachers, and book lovers. Everyone has a story to tell. She hopes participants leave her workshops excited to write and confident that they have something important to share.
Williams has presented to large groups and led small workshops at schools and libraries in twenty plus states. She has facilitated writers' sessions for veterans, seniors, professional groups and conferences. Williams has a B.A. from University of California, Davis, and an M.Ed. from College of Notre Dame.
