Scott Sussman

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

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.
