Publication Order of Anthologies

Suzanne Selfors is an American author that writes books aimed towards teens. Suzanne started writing novels when all her children started school and she realized she had some free time on her hands.


Suzanne Selfors was born in 1963 in Munich (Germany) to a teacher and a real-estate broker. Though she was born on an army base in Munich, most of the author’s memories revolve around Washington, specifically Bainbridge Island where she grew up.

Suzanne never really left that area, not even after she got married. Suzanne has nothing bad to say about her childhood. She was pretty happy and sociable. She had great friends and she even got to pursue her passion for storytelling.

Suzanne’s creative career began in the theater. Her school gave her a part in their stage production of ‘Romeo and Juliet’. That was enough to draw her into the world of theater, a world that consumed her all through high school.

The distraction manifested at the right time. Her home life wasn’t especially pleasant because of the problems plaguing her parents’ marriage. But what started as a distraction grew into something stronger, so much so that Suzanne Selfors ended up studying Dance and Art at Bennington College.

The choice might have proven too risky for anyone else. But Suzanne knew what she wanted and she wasn’t ready to stop until she got it, which is why she followed her stint at Bennington College up with a theater course at Occidental College where she finally got her degree.

Life outside college took Suzanne Selfors through a variety of fields and careers. Boasting a master’s degree in communications from the University of Washington, Suzanne eventually did everything from working as a children’s photographer to growing flowers.

Writing did not come into the picture until Suzanne became a wife and mother. For a long while, fulfilling those two roles occupied all of Suzanne’s time. The inspiration to write came when the author’s children reached an age where she could afford to read to them.

That meant going to bookstores and shopping for books. There are authors who start writing because they locate a gap in the market. They go book shopping and they cannot seem to find the right books to satiate their need. So, assuming that there are other readers in the world struggling with the same need, they set about plugging that gap with their own literary efforts.

That wasn’t the case for Suzanne. In fact, Suzanne was shocked by just how rich the offering in the kid’s section of her favorite bookstores was. Every time the author went book shopping, she always walked away with an armful of books.

This taught Suzanne that there was some sort of children’s literature renaissance going on, and she wanted to be part of it. So Suzanne wrote ‘To Catch a Mermaid’ and began her journey to publishing success.

+Literary Career

Suzanne Selfors was 39-years-old in 2002. She had finally seen her youngest child off to school. She came to the realization that, with all her children away from home in the day, Suzanne would have quite a few hours to herself; hours she could use to pursue her passions.

While the author had toyed with the idea of writing fiction, it was in that moment that she made the decision to actually pursue that dream. And unlike most authors, Suzanne Selfors experienced success very quickly.

Her first literary work was an adult novel. Not only did she complete it relatively quickly but it didn’t even take her that long to land an agent. That agent successfully got the manuscript into the hands of 12 major publishers.

And that point in time, Suzanne was ready to put her legs up. She couldn’t believe how easy success had come. Of course, that excitement did not last. Suzanne came to understand the brutality of the publishing arena when she was assaulted by a dozen rejections.

Her sense of accomplishment and success reversed and she began to view herself as a total loser. If Suzanne’s goal was to pick herself up and inject a burst of encouragement into her mind and emotions, the decision to write two additional adult novels achieved the opposite effect.

Not only did the novels fail to sell but Suzanne also lost her agent. She was no longer the hot property everyone had touted her to be. Of course, like most professional authors, Suzanne did not give up.

Her previous mistake was writing sequels to a first book that had failed to sell. This time, she changed tactics. She completely reinvented herself and went into the children’s literature genre.

She got herself another agent, wrote her first children’s book and got it sold. She did not need any other sign to tell her that she had finally discovered her voice.

Nothing about Suzanne’s past prepared her for a future as a writer of books for tweens. She simply experimented with the genre after her initial attempts at conquering the adult fiction field ended in failure.

The author has since made writing a part of her life. She writes most days, though she doesn’t have a specific writing schedule. Suzanne gets her best work done away from her home, preferably in a coffee house. The author loves the activity and the white noise.

+Saving Juliet

Mimi Wallingford doesn’t care for acting. A descendant of Adelaide Wallingford, Mimi knows that any other girl would kill to act on Broadway, in a Shakespeare play, opposite heartthrob Troy Summers.

But Mimi is only doing what she can to keep her mother happy. Mimi’s life changes when she ends up in Shakespeare’s Verona along with Troy. There, Mimi no only gets to watch the feud at the center of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ play out first hand but she begins to relate with Juliet.

Like Mimi, Juliet is fighting for the chance to decide her own future, and Mimi and Troy might be able to help her achieve her dreams, possibly even averting a tragedy in the process.

+Coffeehouse Angel

Malcolm is a guardian angel on break. But Katrina doesn’t know that. When she looks at Malcolm, all she sees is a homeless guy in an alleyway behind her grandmother’s coffee shop.

So she does the nice thing and gives him a cup of coffee and some pastries. Malcolm is so thoroughly moved by Katrina’s selfless action that he refuses to leave alone until he can fulfill her heart’s desire.
