Susan Hood - Author

Susan Hood is the author of more than 200 children's books, including Tickly Toes, The Tooth Mouse (winner of ReadBoston's 2013 Best Read Aloud Book Award) and a series of ten Pup and Hound beginning readers for Kids Can Press.

Before becoming a full-time author, Susan was the Children's Content Director for Nick Jr. Magazine and a book editor at Sesame Street and Scholastic. She has written for parents in the New York Times, Working Mother magazine and more.

When not writing, Susan enjoys sailing with her husband from her home in Southport, Connecticut, to ports along the New England coast. Many ideas for new books come from those days sailing the ocean blue. Six more picture books are in the works!
