In attempt to meet deadlines and get more books written, I have purposefully made myself difficult to reach. It’s nothing personal — y’all know I love you. I just reached a point a few years ago where I spent more time answering emails than I did doing…well, anything else.

So if you want to ask a question or just want to let me know something, then go ahead and send your message to susan [at] I cannot guarantee I will answer in a timely manner, though.

For other types of requests (subsidiary rights, events, etc.), see the below contact addresses. And of course, never dismiss the power of handwritten snail mail. Nothing makes me happier. ❤️
