SUSAN SUSSMAN began her writing career freelancing articles, features and columns for Chicago newspapers and national publications. She gradually shifted to books and currently writes books of fiction and non-fiction for all ages. Her adult best-seller THE DIETER was selected as the first hard-cover ever published by Pocket Books. Her classic children's book THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A CHANUKAH BUSH, SANDY GOLDSTEIN won numerous awards. Sussman won an EMMY for her film adaptation of CHANUKAH BUSH. Twenty-six books later, Sussman has published both fiction and non-fiction for ages pre-school through adult.

Sussman's works have been translated into many languages. She just completed a children's book to be published by Albert Whitman next year, and is working on two adult novels: MIAMI PUMPED a light mystery (which follows MIAMI ICED in the Miami Maven series), and MAMA SELMA'S WALK, a story of an old woman who has lost too many loved ones to war.

Sussman now lives in Miami.
