Suzanne Gene (Davis) Courtney has enjoyed a teaching career of nearly 30 years. Coming from a family of educators, Suzanne has always wanted to teach.

She has raised three wonderful children: Laura, Daniel, and Gregg. Laura and Gregg now reside in Austin, TX. Daniel passed away suddenly in 1997 in Hawaii, his birthplace.

Suffering from a broken heart, Suzanne began to write. At first, she wrote poems of suffering, angst, enlightenment, hope, and comfort.

Helping her community… Suzanne continues to read her books to classrooms of children and to give her books on bereavement to families, hospices, and funeral homes. She lives in Austin, TX
