Scott Sussman

I was born in Fountain Valley, California in 1971.

I hold a degree in creative writing from the University of California, Long Beach. My picture book FRED AND THE MONSTER won an Independent Publisher Award in 2015. I have self-published eight children’s books, another of which (SILLY THE SEED) was featured on the hit TV show Total Bellas. I was a faculty speaker at SCBWI’s 2019 Summer Conference and am also an active member. I have done thousands of presentations at schools, libraries, and bookstores from Los Angeles to New York and also internationally.

In addition to reading, writing, and playing the harmonica, I tame tornadoes, chase (and catch) dreams, and train my pet cat in the art of pillow fighting.

I am currently seeking representation to spearhead my new picture book and MG novels to the traditional market.
