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 in 2019 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 March 2022, Highlights Magazine published my story, “Where’s Your Hair, Bear?”

I write for children because anything is possible in the mind of a child. Tables can walk and talk. French fries can refuse to be eaten. Your socks can complain that your feet stink.
