Susan Tuttle has loved reading and writing since she was a child. In the past few years, God began to develop her love of writing along with a vision for women’s ministry. While yet unpublished, Susan continues her journey step-by-step along each brick God lays on her path. Her passion is two-fold: To write stories—just as Christ told parables—and to use them to reach hurting women so they may be drawn into His healing embrace.
A member of ACFW, Susan is married to her best friend, Doug, and currently homeschools her three children at their home in Michigan. In her early mornings and late evenings, she works on her blog which is linked to her church and continues to write the books God has placed on her heart.
