About Sue

  • Hi, my name's Star, but I'm also known as Sue.
    I am passionate about the power of words and the way they bring us closer together. Words contain the power to solve even the biggest of problems, especially when they come from the heart. I am also fortunate enough to have several strings to my bow:

    As a business, copy, and social media writer, I specialize in adapting my voice to that of my amazing clients and publications. Current and previous clients include branding expert Dorie Clark (Entrepreneurial You, Stand Out, and Reinventing You), DoubleCheck Research, numerous business ghostwriting clients, and educational publishers such as Helicon, among others. I also adore animals, especially dogs, and I enjoy blogging for pet bloggers at BlogPaws.

    As a fiction writer and confidence coach, I often use stories to help end the shame of bullying and teach young people how to tackle it. Having experienced bullying as a child, I later worked as a teacher at the first of the Red Balloon Learner Centers -- a UK charity for students who self-exclude from mainstream education due to trauma and harassment. Since then, I have dedicated my fiction writing to empowering those who feel different.

    My literary fiction has appeared in a wide range of magazines and journals, including Narrative where I later worked as an editor. My young adult novella, The Winged Hendersons, has been the recipient of the Glimmer Train Best Start Award and was also honored with a "top 25" acknowledgment in the Glimmer Train Fiction Open. Under another name, I am an Amazon bestselling author and an LGBTQ+ blogger, publisher, and activist. Under that identity, I am proud to have been a fellow at the Writers Room of Boston.

    I have worked as a confidence coach and writing instructor at Grub Street and elsewhere. You'll find a fuller list of my publications below.
