Suzanne is an experienced coach, author and publisher. She has a masters in adult education from the University of Calgary, and a bachelor in Journalism & Mass Communication from Kansas State University. She has written two non-fiction books to date, Through the Rear View Mirror: The ASL Paving Story; and Birth of a Boom: Lives & Legacies of Saskatchewan Entrepreneurs.
She founded Indie Ink Publishing in 2010 as a creative content services company and boutique non-fiction publisher. Though small, having produced fewer than 20 titles, Indie proved its passion for producing high quality books from authors with fresh voices. In the process, Indie won several international book awards for its titles, and has produced a Canadian best-seller. In 2016, FreshVoice purchased the assets of Indie Ink, as Suzanne moved from Canada to the Seattle area, where she now provides author coaching, online training and publishing services for her clients.
Along the way, Suzanne became one of the first publishers in Canada to experiment with crowdfunding for books and authors, and now serves the National Crowdfunding Association of Canada (NCFA) as an Ambassador. She blogs about crowdfunding, and delivers webinars and workshops in addition to her Crowdfunding for Authors & Publishers courses here on Teachable.
A Renaissance girl, Suzanne's 35-year career has included writing of nearly every kind, including two original albums of swing/jazz/pop music. She has won numerous writing and production awards from national and international organizations like CASE, PubWest, The Kansas Bar Association, The Great American Song Contest, the Song of the Year competition, and others.
She is founder of The Pink Notebook Project, a blog and research project that will culminate in a book and supporting online training in the next several years. She is also an active blogger for FreshVoice, Huffington Post, BookBaby and other blogs.
During her professional career, Suzanne worked in advertising and public relations in New York City, and was PR Director for two research-intensive Canadian universities over a period of 15 years.
