ABOUT SUZANNE MORRIS
Sue Morris (me) is a retired social worker who worked with children. Currently, I review children’s book at Kid Lit Reviews and have for the past 8 years (5 at KLR). I also review children’s books for the New York Journal of Books and IndieBrag. Am a member of the National Book Critic’s Circle.I love reviewing kids books but would like to write my own. I’ve taken several writing courses most notably at the Institute of Children’s Literature. Working on a middle grade novel and tossing about ideas for a picture books.When not writing, I enjoy my three pets (2 spoiled cats–one who thinks he is a dog–and 1 grumpy rescue dog), and help at a local dog rescue. I like taking photographs, once actually making a living as a photographer. You’ll rarely see me in front of a camera, making photo requests quite difficult.Doodling is a fun activity, but I need some work. A long-standing goal is to learn how to use Photoshop and Illustrator, though I have no desire to illustrate books. I image you need to be a good artist to do this and I am not a good artist, just a “fun artist.”.I love puzzles–Sudoku, Logic, Cryptic, Anagrams–and would love to learn how to develop puzzles for kids.My second Twitter is for KLR: @kidlitreviews1
Currently, as an aspiring author, I am working on ideas for picture books and am writing a middle grade novel. I’ve certainly read enough books to get an idea of what works, but have not been able to attend any conferences due to location. I am hoping to make the ALA conference in Columbus, Ohio this year.
