    Wish I lived in Michigan. Would love to attend the ”Solving the Mysteries of your Family Histories” event. I am on that route myself.

  2. suehar says:

    Thank you, Brandy. It is fun to do that family research! Good luck with yours!

  3. Trish says:

    Yes I wish I was closer to hear Solving the Mysteries of your family. I’m at present doing our family tree. Sue are you doing your tree how do you manage to fit it all in!!

  4. suehar says:

    Trish, I’m not doing a lot of family research. My talk concerns three ways our family discovered some unusual information about our family history and how others can use similar ways to aid their research.

  5. angela says:

    please continue the stories like your two series. i have been an advivd fan. i love to hear stories where women over come hardships especially when they take you away from your own hardship.

  6. suehar says:

    Thank you, Angela. Although the market for novels set in prehistoric times is very shaky, I continue to write novels with strong women characters who find themselves in very difficult situations. I’ll be posting the news to this website if one of my novels are picked up by a publisher!

  7. Janelle says:

    Sue, I read My Sister the Moon as a 13 year old girl and the strength of the main character (Kiin) made me realize the strength I had within. She helped me to face my own life and its difficulties. Thank you for writing about such a resilient young woman, I gleaned so much from her.

  8. suehar says:

    Thank you so much, Janelle. It means so much to me to know that you found strength through the story of Kiin’s life. Blessings, Sue

  9. Maggie Blue says:

    Do you ever come to Florida? Would love to hear you?
    How about California? Hugs, Maggie

  10. Paula Elk says:

    I do live in Michigan and will try to attend one of your appearances. I used to live in Cedarville near Pickford and am very familiar with your part of the state. Love your books and look forward to passing them on to my grand daughters. Thank you for your wonderful stories.

  11. suehar says:

    Be sure to come up and introduce yourself, Paula!

  12. suehar says:

    Maggie, If I ever get a chance to speak to a group in California or Florida again I’ll be sure to let you know!

    Dear Sue: First of all, excuse my poor English. I tell you with my wife again visited Canada where we have lived since 2001.With our friends wanted to take this opportunity to go further north. Joining them visited northern British Columbia, the Yukon Territory and Alaska where we toured Anchorage, Denali and Clarke National Park, Bristol Bay, Fairbanks and many more places I will not detail not to bore

    It was a wonderful trip that took us the whole month of July. We returned to Argentina tired, but very happy we could be close to where your books are developed. My wife also read your books and we moved imaginatively to your books. We must say that the descriptions of the landscapes that point out in your books are excellent. We would have liked to continue traveling more, but we had more time and accessibility was very complex (at least for us). – Anyway, we had the pleasure of seeing our friends, meet beautiful scenery and being close to the places where develops the second trilogy of your books. Do not ask me why, but I guess your birthday is August 31. If so, well, I hope you’ve had a good time with family and friends (and as we say in Argentina “… continues to participate for years to come …”). – If it is not, well, you send greetings anticipated
    With sincere respect
    Carlos Francingues (Argentina)

  14. suehar says:

    Hi Carlos, So glad to hear from you again! Your trip must have been incredible!! Thank you again for your kind words about my novels. I’m so delighted that you have enjoyed them. May you and your family continue to be blessed with wonderful adventures and much joy in life~

  15. Scott Pakarinen says:

    I am not much of a book reader, but I am on the 6th book in the 2 series of books. I am an old Grandfather and I have really enjoyed them. My wife is also enjoying them. thanks.
    Fell free to write and three book series,LOL.
    Scott

  16. suehar says:

    Thank you, Scott, for the encouragement. I’m delighted to hear that you and your wife are both enjoying my novels!! And thanks for my “smile of the day!”

  17. Amanda says:

    Hello from Alaska! I just wanted to let you know how much I love your books! I have read all of them except “Call down tbe stars” I cannot seem to find it any book store here in Alaska and I pretty disappointed at that haha. I hope you write another trilogy some what like the first two. Once again you are an amazing writer and I cannot wait to get my hands on “call down the stars” best of luck in all that you do! 🙂

  18. suehar says:

    Thank you for your kind words, Amanda! I have hardcover copies of CALL DOWN THE STARS, and if you go to the home page of this website and click on “store” you’ll be able to find information about ordering the book. I’m also pretty sure that you can purchase CALL DOWN THE STARS as a used book in paperback or hardcover from Amazon.

  19. Tonya says:

    Hi Sue,

    Any news on if they will ever release the new books in e-format? I have both sets…….but they are old, and would love to have them on my Kindle to read when ever I want. I have read both sets at least a dozen times over the years. I first read Kiins story when I was 12 or so, and it built in me a great love for these kinds of books.

    Wish the market was stronger and you could write more about Kiin or others like her………your talent for bringing your readers into that world is just fantastic!! I have read many series over the years, the People of the Wolf (And so on) and almost every book Micheal Gear wrote, plus the Clan of the Cave Bear series, and while wonderful books………….none of them pulls you in like your work does. I read the series at least once a year, and its about that time again this year, thought I would check and see if it was on e-book yet but sadly no 🙁

    I keep my fingers crossed that one day I will see your name across a book like these again…………Nothing like losing yourself into that world 🙂

    I wish you the best in everything you do!!

  20. suehar says:

    Thank you so much for your kind, kind words, Tonya. I’m hoping to have some good news soon on the ebook situation. I’ll be sure to let you know!

  34. Hi, my Father loves your book series, you are but about 3 others I have ever heard him repeat he loves the books by. He loves the detail in your novels, and stories that go with the world you write about. My dad lives in Dillingham, Alaska. Have you ever been in the are before? (Bristol Bay area)

  35. suehar says:

    Thank you George, and tell your father “thank you from Sue!” No, I haven’t been to Dillingham. It seems when we’re not in the islands of the Aleutian Chain or the Pribilofs, I’m either in Anchorage, Juneau or Fairbanks. I think I’ve missed a beautiful place!

  42. Cristina Salad says:

    hello, My name is Cristina. I’m from Spain. Since years ago I’m in love with your books. At the end of the 90′, I discovered them and I always have thought that are incredibles with a lot of details about the tribes and people. Their traditions, their robes, their meals. It’s fantastic for me. I can feel their history and read it.

    Thank you for write about a part of history so unknown, specially about people who lives in the American lands for milleniums

    I’m journalist and I would like to write, someday, a story who can feel like yours
    (Sorry but I think that my english it’s not good)

  43. suehar says:

    Oh Cristina, What a beautiful thing to say, and please do not apologize for your English. It is very good, and I have very little Spanish at all~ I encourage you in your dreams of writing, and I have said a prayer that you will find great joy and fulfillment in and during your career as a writer!

  44. Hello. I love Sue Harrison. Since reading “Mother Earth, Father Sky” in 2004, I adore books Sue. And she herself is a deep person and a beautiful soul. We share your lyrics from their mother tongue, English, my Spanish. I thank each of his words. The ink with which they are printed are worth more than gold. A profound work of great quality and value, that is the work of Sue Harrison.
    Ney Antonio Salinas.

    Thank you, Ney!!
