Susan has used Cover&Layout to produce the cover and interior layout for the new edition of her bestselling young adult novel Not Yet Summer as well as her previous books Hey, Chicken Man!, Something's Fishy at Ash Lake, co-written with Anne Stephenson, and Dragons of Desert and Dust.
Fantasy and adventure! Writer, teacher, gardener, traveler and border collie wrangler, Susan Brown started writing in high school, imagining what might be happening in the big wide world and other possible places. Eventually she began publishing her stories with Scholastic and Atheneum, even turning one into a short-lived TV show.
Susan Brown writes a mix of YA fantasy (dragons and mythological beings straying into ordinary life) and realistic fiction about the problems real kids deal with.
The day to day part of Susan Brown’s life involves teaching high school, writing whenever she can, supervising three grown daughters, assorted sons-in-law and spoiling two amazing grandsons. Some of Susan’s books use her own home as the background for her imaginary characters – characters that have come to seem so real to her, that she feels like they are living there too!
