Susan Bernardo

Inner Flower Child Books
Award-winning poet and children's book author Susan Schaefer Bernardo is a firm believer in the healing powers of creativity. She and her illustrating partner Courtenay Fletcher formed their indie publishing company Inner Flower Child Books in 2012 with the release of their first book Sun Kisses, Moon Hugs. Since that time, they have successfully co-created, crowdfunded and published two more picture books, The Big Adventures of Tiny House and the forthcoming biography The Artist Who Loved Cats. Susan co-authored The Rhino Who Swallowed a Storm with renowned actor LeVar Burton in 2014, and was honored when the book was read aloud to military families by former First Lady Michelle Obama -- and also sent to the International Space Station for Storytime from Space! In 2018 she released Inspired, a YA novel aimed at tween/teen girls. Susan is a graduate of UCLA, Yale and Pepperdine, and prior to authoring children's books, she worked in television, public relations and teaching.

Susan lives in Los Angeles with her sons, two cats, four chickens, a rambunctious terrier and a lot of love. When she's not writing, you might find her tidepooling, sculpting, gardening, browsing through a museum, or traveling the world in search of her next inspiration!
