Sue Peterson grew up in a small town on the banks of the Fox River in Wisconsin. After graduating from college and graduate school, she spent over 3 decades teaching K-12, college, and adult students in regular and special education, ESL, and gifted/talented programs both in the US and at international schools in Korea and Poland.
Now, teaching in the graduate education department of a local college for their add-on gifted/talented teaching licensure, Sue is also a freelance writer and editor. She has authored her own educational products: 450 leveled books, about 50 original plays, and an elementary language arts series. Of all the types of writing Sue does, she enjoys writing for children and creative writing the most.
Now retired, Sue spends much of her time at the family cottage in northern Wisconsin. If she is not sailing, you might find her thinking of that next children’s story as she rests on the hammock under the century-old fir trees or walks the trails with her beloved Westie, Kenya.
