Welcome to the Susies Stories site, featuring information about Susie and her books. The online site for Susie's Stories Rockport bookstore is now open as well, where we feature a selection of carefully curated books, ranging from classic to contemporary, meant for everyone from the very young to the more mature reader.

We invite you to visit our site and get to know some wonderful characters and fun stories. We are always excited about the opportunity to present our stories to you all, and it is with a sense of great excitement that we present this work to the world. This is a passion, and there are many things planned to be published over time. The first five books for SusiesStories were "Too Much Hopscotch" , "How My Daddy Taught Me To Dance", "I Don't Care What You Wear As Long As It's Clean", and "The Whale, the Ocean, the Duck, and the Pond", as well as the graphic action comic called D.U.A.N.E. (Don't Underestimate Any Natural Elements) which was most recently published. It is the cornerstone of efforts to increase community awareness about severe weather safety. Please spread the word and share our website with others that share our purpose and our interests!

This being my first Instagram post makes it special in itself but making it in the middle of this life changing pandemic gives me reason to note that this is another disaster to try to survive. Cherish the things in life that are truly special, like your higher power, mine being God, family, friends and hope. Don’t let anger, depression and fear take away your peace, joy or ability to help others. Stay safe, healthy and continue to prepare for the future. Psalms 30:5 weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning. Be assured there will be a time of joy even in the midst of this trial. I need us all to survive. ...

In response to the very fluid situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the shop is currently not holding regular store hours. We're often in the shop on Saturdays, preparing for normal business when the time comes.
For Cape Ann residents, we're happy in the meantime to order books for you, and for Rockport residents we'll make arrangements to deliver orders to your house, or arrange for a safe transaction at the store. For that matter everyone is welcome to order from our website.
Please stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to having you visit the second edition of Susies Stories as soon as it is feasible.

We're already excited about the approaching season in Rockport; doing a lot of reading and researching in anticipation of our expansion this year. One thing we'll be adding to our adult ficton section is some good sci-fi (yes we are fans). Currently reading book two of the Hugo Award-winning 'The Three Body Problem' series by Chixin Liu. You'll find them on our shelves soon! ...
