Susan York, Author

While living on a houseboat in Northern California, Susan became so inspired by Meggie’s joyful, loving spirit, the magical qualities of the docks and their extraordinary setting that she completed her first children’s picture book and series. Susan continues to be inspired by the beauty and everyday magic that surrounds her. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. A Big Day for a Little Dog received the 2019 Beverly Hills Book Finalist Award in both picture book and pets/animals categories.
