One Writer’s Journey

About SueBE

I am a writer living and working in St. Louis, Missouri.  My work has appeared in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, READ, Ladybug, Children’s Writer newsletter, the Children’s Writer’s and Illustrator’s Market, The Gaited Horse Journal, and Young Equestrian Magazine. 

I owe much of my success to the generous writers I met through the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.  To thank them for their generosity, I try to help other writers as much as possible.  

If you have a question about some aspect of writing, feel free to e-mail me and I’ll do my best to come up with an answer or a solution.

  4. Hi SueBe,
    Thanks so much for your kind words about my Timeless Thomas trailer. It was a lot of fun to make – plus my son enjoyed starring in it.

  5. SueBe I am very familiar with you from SCBWI. Just wanted to say hello, and ask if you had the time, I did see the post you did on Ripple Grove Press, I did submit to them, but I would love if someone in the profession could give me some feedback, as their reply time is 3 months.

  6. Just read and enjoyed your article in the 2013 CWI Market on illustrators and authors. Thank you. You answered so many of my questions about writing without being the illustrator.
