Suzanne Poulter Harris
Suzanne grew up in Northern Ireland where she taught high school Geography for five years. While enjoying a Mediterranean cruise one summer, she fell in love with an officer and a gentleman from the United States of America. Since then, she has travelled the world experiencing countries and cultures firsthand. Her year in a penthouse in Rome was by far the most exciting place to call home!
Suzanne has worked as a middle school special education teacher in Massachusetts; an independent book consultant for Usborne Books in Alabama; and an English communication teacher near Stuttgart, Germany. But it was teaching first graders to read in Colorado that re-ignited her love of picture books. While raising her own two daughters to be readers, she decided to pursue a career in writing. Suzanne loves the fact that no matter where she moves, she can take her story ideas with her.
A member of SCBWI, Julie Hedlund’s 12x12 picture book challenge, and a couple of international critique groups, Suzanne currently resides in south west Texas. A strong supporter of daily reading to children, she is passionate about creating books to be enjoyed by both children and their parents. Suzanne gravitates towards quirky, clever stories with layers.
