    Oh, Sandy, thank you so much! Give your Mom a hug from me!

    Sue are you going to write more books??? and if so “when”??????

  3. suehar says:

    Thank you for your interest, Judy! For the past 12 years my life has been dedicated to taking caring of my husband’s parents and now my parents as well. When my mother-in-law who had Alzheimer’s passed away, I had more time to write, but no strong market for my favorite genre – novels set in prehistoric times. I wrote three suspense novels and a historical but none were picked up by publishers. However, the company that republished my Alaska novels as ebooks is now interested in the research I did years and years ago about Neolithic Europe. So I am currently writing a novel set in Eastern Europe 5800 B.C. Like my novel, Mother Earth Father Sky, it’s about a young woman who is battling for her life as cultures and peoples clash. At this point I have about 1/4 of the novel written, and I hope that I’ll be able to carve out enough time to complete it in the next year or so. I’ll be sure to keep everyone informed as I go along.

    Your books are truly phenomenal. I read them about 6 years ago and I just purchased them on my Kindle and I am still blown away. I came to your website to see if you had published any additional books. I’m excited that you are working on new material. You are incredibly talented and I love how you writing makes me feel as if I am there. Thank you for your works.

  5. suehar says:

    Oh Ren, thank you so much for your kindness in sending this comment my way. In this new novel I am writing, I’m trying to create the same effect of carrying my readers into my stories. I’ve loved the research and will soon be posting blogs about my “journey” in writing BONE FIRE, a novel set in prehistoric Europe.

    Once upon a time, when you had just published “Mother Earth, Father Sky”, you came to West Branch and did a reading for MidMichigan Writers. Since then, I’ve gone on to get an MFA in creative writing from Goddard College in Vermont, got a few grants to teach memoir classes (after daytime teaching elementary students how to read) and had a few short stories published in little literary magazines. Recently, I self-published two books, which are fortunately selling well in the local venue.
    I am now on another project, profiling Michigan writers, somewhat in the vein of “Ink Trails” by David and Jack Dempsey and published by MSU Press. It was a good read, but the authors they profiled were all dead and gone.
    I would like to profile the wonderful writers Michigan has who are still very much alive and working. I would like to include you, your work and Pickford in my venture. Could I interview you by phone or email?
    Thank you for a reply.
    Marylou Bugh

  7. suehar says:

    I remember that reading, and I’m delighted that you’ve pursued your writing career with such wonderful results Marylou. I’m more than honored that you would include me in your Michigan writers project and would be delighted to do an interview with you. Please email me at to set up a time and day!

    Dear Sue
    I have read all of you books again and again, and each time a was amazed anew.
    Thank you for giving us such stories. These are just fictions, but they make my life more bearable and encouraging me to go on with a positive attitude.
    I am looking forward to your next book.
    Elfriede Valente

  9. Sue Harrison says:

    Thank you, Elfriede. It means more than I can adequately say to know that my books have encouraged you. Many blessings!

  10. Geri Ryan says:

    I have so enjoyed your books and will continue to follow you as one of my favorite authors.

  11. suehar says:

    Thank you so much, Geri. As I continue to work on my current novel BONE FIRE, I hope you’ll drop in at Sue Harrison Author (on Facebook) and help me out with ideas and join in the voting and the fun. My FB friends are helping me a lot with the novel!!

  12. Stephanie says:

    Sue, I enjoyed reading the Ivory Carver trilogy and am now reading the Storyteller trilogy! I literally had to run to the computer (reading on my kindle) to see if there might be a family tree to show the lineage and also to see if there were any in between trilogy’s. If you ever do write a series linking the 2 or share an ancestral lineage, I’d sure love to know when it might be available. In Song of the River about the brothers Sok and Chaliux, I couldn’t help but think of brothers Samiq, Amgigh and their sons. Are the characters descendants? And of course the list I wonder about can go on about ancestral lineage!

  13. suehar says:

    Thank you for reading my novels, Stephanie! I appreciate it so much. The characters of Song of the River are related to those in The Ivory Carver Trilogy, but two thousand years separate the stories, so a family tree would be almost impossible to construct, but later in the novel you will note a reference to Kiin and storytellers in my first trilogy. I would like to write one or more books that take place between the 2 trilogies, but that opportunity hasn’t yet come to me for various reasons. I think those books would be more closely linked to the first trilogy (Ivory) rather than the second (Storyteller). Thank you for your interest and again, thank you for reading!!!

  14. Wanda says:

    I must add my compliments to the ‘story teller.’ I think we learn a lot about you from your writing that we wouldn’t consider…the perspective of different story tellers, the effort to meet the listeners/readers expectations and limits, to name a few.

    I have enjoyed all of your books and look forward to future productions. Keep them coming!

  15. suehar says:

    Thank you so much, Wanda! It was such a fun book to write, despite trying to envision life through two storytellers’ points of view. Now I’m working on BONE FIRE, a novel set in ancient Eastern Europe. I’m having fun!!

  16. Jut finished reading for the second consecutive time your Story Teller Trilogy, and am amazed at your writing. Gifts such as yours are rare, and sharing with your readers that skill is, in turn, a gift to all. Well Done!

  17. suehar says:

    Thank you so much, Dale Lounsbury!! You’re so kind to take the time to write. Lots of sunshine in my life today!!

  18. Barbara Bowser says:

    Just a thank you for the wonderful books I’ve had the pleasure of reading. I’m a huge fan of prehistoric fiction. I’ve just re – read your 6 books for the 5th time. It’s pretty much on an every other year schedule now. They are amazing stories that I can lose myself in. I’m so looking forward to the next one. Your writing is amazing. Thank you.

  19. suehar says:

    Thank you so much, Barbara Bowser. Your comment warms my heart! I’m working hard on the next novel, BONE FIRE!

  20. Dania Gomez says:

    Hi I just finished reading you amazing novel “My Sister The Moon” and was wondering if you will or already have a sequel to it. I love that novel so much!

  21. suehar says:

    Thank you, Dania. You’re so kind to comment! Yes, there is a sequel and a prequel. My Sister the Moon is the middle book of the Ivory Carver Trilogy. The first novel is the story of Chagak and the name is Mother Earth Father Sky. The third novel begins exactly where My Sister the Moon leaves off (actually it starts with a recap of the MSTM’s last chapter). The title is BROTHER WIND.

  22. Dania Gomez says:

    Thank you so much! I love your work! I will be looking for more of your books and with out thinking twice I’ll buy them!! You are an incredible writer! Much love ☺

  23. Sue Harrison says:

    Dania Gomez: I appreciate that so much!!

  24. Susanna says:

    Hi Sue!
    I have read both your trilogies many many times! I love your stories! There are only few books in the world which I’ve been reading more than once. Every time I read your trilogies, I find something new from them. The story of Kiin is my favourite.
    Can’t wait for your next book!
    Greetings from Finland!

  25. suehar says:

    Thank you, Susanna. I’m so delighted that you have enjoyed my novels! I’m working hard on my next novel, BONE FIRE, and am excited to hear that you are looking forward to its release!!

  26. Melanie says:


    I have just finished reading your 6 Alaska novels – I read them straight off, one after the other!! I am totally blind so listened to them via The books are absolutely brilliant and I lost myself in the world of the characters and their environment. The narrators were also excellent. I look forward in the future to reading more books by you – I am hooked!! Like others, I came on here to see if there were any more.

  27. suehar says:

    Oh Melanie, Thank you so much for taking time to write such a lovely message. Sunshine in my day for sure! My current novel-in-progress is BONE FIRE, which is set in Europe 5800 B.C. It’s been fun to write and I’m currently on the last edit before I send it to my editor. That means I have no solid timeline for publication because she may request many or few edits. We’ll see!!

    Recently, I have begun to appreciate even more the courage and strength of people who are blind. I’m battling macular degeneration and still have good vision, but I can get aggravated with that middle “blur,” especially when I’m reading. God bless you, Melanie.

  28. Olinka Peterson says:

    Love love love all those books…I am an avid reader and I pick up the series twice a year it never gets old. you do awesome research although I am not alutiiq I am Yupik (short ones) I was blown by how accurate your stories are…I am thirsting and yearning for more of your work…love it

  29. suehar says:

    Thank you for these so very kind words, Olinka!!

  30. Hi Sue. I just discovered your books and am lining them up to read back to back. I also want to thank you for fighting the good fight for historical authors. I am a historical writer with 11 novels who, unfortunately, chose way back to craft them as historical romances rather than mainstream fiction. In the day of “true historicals” (history first, romance second in order of importance) I greatly enjoyed writing and reading these type of books. But the market changed, putting romance first and history (or what passed as historical research) second in most cases. I love the ancient Native American time period and used Native American settings as well, about 1600 to the late 1800s in most cases.

    But now, alas, I just got tired of the struggle with agents and editors and am now a reader instead of a writer. I do so admire your “stick-to-it-ness” and look forward to reading more of your work.

  31. suehar says:

    Thank you so much, Kathy. Are any of your novels still available? I’m always looking for “new authors” to read.

  32. Lindsay Lagasse says:

    I just now finished Brother Wind and am hunting the local library catalogs for the Storyteller triology books to have them sent to my closest one. My friend sent me Mother Earth Father Sky and My Sister the Moon years ago, but it got shoved to the side in the craziness of life. I have recently found myself unemployed and, so, I can stay up a little later at nights reading. I started your books and “a little later” quickly became “all night” (I am an avid reader, but never managed to be a fast reader). You are a captivating writer. I have always claimed Michael Crichton as my author of choice, given his skill and my live for science fiction, but you and your historical fiction are giving him a run for his money! I look forward to reading the Storyteller triology, in addition to your other series I know you are doing/have done!

  33. suehar says:

    Oh Lindsay, Thank you so much for your very kind comments. I’m a Michael Crichton fan, too, as is my husband, so I know you’ve put me in heady company!! So today, I’m starting out with a huge smile on my face, thanks to you!!

  34. Hi Sue. Most of my books are available through used book sellers (for around 0.01 apiece – ouch) , but you might have to hunt a bit to find them. Again, thank you so much for your work in the historical area. I hope to live long enough to see true historicals make a come back!

  35. Anne says:

    Hi Sue, I LOVE all of your books. I am an Alaskan Native woman and your characters bring me back to my own upbringing with my grandparents. The native food, the traditions, the subsistence, all of it. We hunt the whale and seal, as well as caribou and moose and everything in between where I live (in northern Alaska). I appreciate your work and research you have done to keep your stories as close to how many Alaskan Natives still live today.

  36. suehar says:

    Thank you for your kind words, Anne. With your knowledge and background and heritage, you make my day sing with your compliments.
