Susan Leigh Needham
Susan Leigh Needham has been creating and sharing stories since she learned to talk. When she isn’t writing stories for children, she can be found helping her fellow writer friends connect on Instagram. Susan has a Masters in Education and has taught at every level from elementary to university. Growing up on the beautiful coast of North Carolina, she spent most of her time either outside exploring or inside reading. She now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband and 2 kids where she spends her days writing, reading, drinking coffee, and avoiding bread and cookies (unsuccessfully).
Susan is a children’s book writer with a passion for helping fellow writers. She created Writer Friends Challenge in 2020 to help the writing community connect and grow on Instagram. On her website you will find writing and Instagram tips, content prompts, and help with social media.
