Author Suzanne Supplee

Suzanne Supplee is the author of Artichoke's Heart and When Irish Guys Are Smiling. Supplee visited on May 24, 2010 and read from her latest book, Somebody Everybody Listens To [MP3 file, 7 MB].

Somebody Everybody Listens To is the story of Retta Lee Jones, a girl blessed with a beautiful voice and big dreams of leaving her tiny Tennessee hometown. With a beaten down car, a pocketful of hard-earned waitressing money, and stars in her eyes, Retta sets out to make it big in Nashville. But the road to success isn't a smooth one in a town filled with dreamers, and Retta begins to have doubts: can she make her mark while staying true to herself?

Suzanne is a graduate of Southern Illinois University, and she earned a masters degree in creative writing from Towson University in Maryland. For a number of years, she has worked as both a teacher and a writer. Suzanne is married and has three daughters. Her favorite hobbies include exercise, reading, and, of course, writing.
