Suzan B Thompson
Ever since I’ve known myself, I have loved to read and write. I was blessed to grow up in a text-rich environment, in which I was never without books. I was into writing books even as a teenager. I wrote my first series of unpublished stories, “Kenridge City,” when I was in the 7th grade. It was my pleasure to distribute these stories to my teenage friends at the time. Eventually, I did write my first published novel, You Can Begin Again: One Woman’s Journey from the Abyss to the Promise, in 2016. I remember my 9th-grade teacher telling me that I had a knack for editing—this notion stayed with me for years. Being an English Major in college and then going on to become a certified English teacher in the public schools and online for a cumulative 17 years, have only increased my love for writing.
For the past seven years, I have focused mainly on teaching online and coaching students; in fact, I manage a writing club made up of both adults and teenagers, who share a passion for writing. Additionally, I’ve been a freelance editor, helping writers bring clarity to their work for several years. Currently, I am finishing up my doctoral studies, which has given me greater insight into the doctoral dissertation process. Beyond my accomplishments, my greatest loves are my husband and three sons who keep me motivated to do what I do. I wear many hats, but amidst all that I do, it is my great honor to be able to help to guide others through their writing, wherever they are on their journey.
