Suzanne Simonovich was born in Chicago Illinois where she attended parochial schools and once had the inclination to become a Nun! Lucky for her husband of 42  years, six children and eight grandchildren she chose a more spontaneous lifestyle. The museums on Lake Shore Drive offered an educational playground; but the architectural beauty of the city‚ and its churches are what still amaze her today.

“I feel a call to educate, inspire, and amuse, or encourage a tear of compassion; to leave a legacy of love and spirituality for myself and for my mother who made an unselfish career choice of motherhood in lieu of journalism. In retrospect, I believe I can keep her memory alive by writing.” 

While working on that premise, she also finds delightful companionship as a member of an intensive writing group. She has a shared obsession to distinguish truth and fiction, finding intrigue in those that have the uncanny ability to amalgamate the two, into fascinating prose.  

Currently she pursues a persistent desire to publish works from fellow writers, particularly those who need to tell their story about how God has made a definite impact on their lives. Their is an urgent need for readers to hear these amazing, relate-able stories and find comfort in them. Suzanne continues to write and help others publish their works and projects dear to her  heart.” You can find her book "Forty Poems for Restless Nights" on Amazon.com. Two of Suzanne’s favorite quotes from the Bible:

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13

“He who returns an honest answer plants a kiss on the lips.” Proverbs 24:26


 

"As an editor I have worked with dozens of writers, many of whom have been published for their short stories, articles and even books. I have worked as an independent contractor in editing for over 15 years with authors from all over the country. 

As a writing teacher I have been teaching at Universities, colleges and independently for 20 years! In teaching, my goal is to take students from the fear of writing they hold (lack of confidence when they enter my classroom) to the empowerment of knowing they can master writing and have something to share with the world.

I run my own blogs and social media marketing. I saw a need in my community for comprehensive information and began writing my personal thoughts and experiences on my blog Living the Life: Kenosha Style on Facebook. Within five months I had over 900 fans and a following of up to 10,000 readers a week. I then began Healthy Living: Kenosha Style – also on Facebook. I began doing public speaking events where I taught social media marketing as well as working with small businesses to get their stores the social media presence they need."  Colleen Kappeler
