Susan Colleen Browne
Northwest Authors 4 Authors is a group of local authors/makers–Susan Colleen Browne, Barbara Jean Hicks, and MaryElaine DeGood Wheatley. We support one another’s creative work: quality fiction, gardening memoirs and children’s books, both independently and traditionally published and some with accompanying toys and games.
Susan Colleen Browne believes in the essential goodness of people, and her books celebrate the tenderness in relationships and the joys of country life. She’s the author of warmhearted Irish novels, and the Little Farm in the Foothills series of gardening memoirs set in the Pacific Northwest. She also writes magical adventure books for tweens!
Barbara Jean Hicks, a.k.a. Barbara Jean the Story Queen, writes fun, read-aloud picture books that encourage kids to look at the world and themselves in new ways and old-fashioned romance novels for teens and adults that focus on the intersection of love and faith.
Living in the Pacific NW, looking out at the slumbering volcano, Mt. Baker, MaryElaine De Good-Wheatley delights in tall tales, fandangled dreams, Faeries, Bigfoot, and the happy hearts of children.
Children loving themselves and others is a life journey practice hoping her illustrations, books, and other sparks of inspiration provide the feelings of happy hearts and good life experiences for all beings.
