    I have read all six of your novels and I have long been a fan of your writing. I am impressed by the strong and well-developed characters as well as the harsh and very real world in which they must survive. I have recently begun writing, or attempting to do so at least, for publication. This has caused me to be a bit more particular about what, and who, I choose to read; you are on my list of favorite authors. I am wondering if you have plans to publish anything in the near future?

  2. suehar says:

    Thank you so much Nicole. I’ve also found that I have to be careful about what I’m reading when I’m working on manuscripts. A bit of sloppy writing gets way too deep into my brain! Thank you for considering my work worth reading as you write. I have recently begun writing for the inspirational market and currently have a novel complete and another nearly complete (in 2nd draft – I’m a 6 draft person usually) but no publisher yet. Good luck with your work. Keep me posted!!

  3. Nicole Bates says:

    I made it all the way to the news tab this morning… thank you for so graciously answering a question that you had already answered ๐Ÿ™‚ I am thrilled to hear that you have new works in progress. Best of luck finding a publisher. I look forward to reading your new novel when it becomes available!

  4. suehar says:

    I’m always happy to answer questions, Nicole! I learn so much by asking, and very little by just wondering!!

  5. Amna Farooq says:

    I have read your novel “Mother Earth Father Sky”, it is one of the greatest novel i have ever read.Your grandeur of diction truly amazed me.How wonderfully you bring the reader to the land of fantasy, and how beautifully you webbed your story till end, its blessing for the people like me, which likes to live in those lands where nature has its own secrets.

  6. suehar says:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Amna.

  7. Caroline Weddel says:

    I too am another of your fans after almost completing your book Mother Earth Father Sky. I was so beautifuly captivated and drawn in, right at the very start, to the world of your characters. I have always loved this type of stories in this setting of early civilization. I am so pleased to know that you have written many more stories in this time line. Is there sequels to this book? Please forgive me as I am new to your work and would like to read them in order and also in the groups (trilogies)I have seen on your website. Thank you for your friendliness in corrispondence with your fans as this is as exciting to me as reading your wonderfully written books. Any guidence in sequence would be extremely helpful to me.
    Thank you so much for your reply and thank you for your stories.
    Another fan,
    CC Weddel

  8. suehar says:

    Thank you, CC! I’ve written 2 Alaskan trilogies. The first is called The Ivory Carver Trilogy. In correct sequence they are Mother Earth Father Sky; My Sister the Moon; Brother Wind. The second is The Storyteller Trilogy. They are Song of the River, Cry of the Wind and Call Down the Stars. Thanks for asking!

    Amaaaazing… Love ur books. I am Alaskan Native and ur books cause a tremble in my spirit….. My dreams are filled with ur storytellers, my mind lingers on single scenes in ur books.. I really cant tell you how very much I love your stories…
    Thank you for hours of joy. My family does tend to get a little hungry, for my lack of feeding them, when one of ur books is in my hand.. Bawhahhah!!
    Much respect, Martina

    Thank you so much. Your beautiful words put joy into my day.

    Ms. Harrison,
    You are one of those rare writers, who can actually transport a person back in time. I have been a huge fan of your trilogy’s for years and I alternate every other year which triology I re-read. What a splendid craftswoman you are! I periodically check for new titles, but I never thought to access your website! I know that your novels take a tremendous amount of time to write and research, but there is really nothing out there that reaches the caliber of your pre-historic writings, especially for the “frozen north”. Please consider writing some more about this fascinating time period and area for your loyal fans. The fire is dying, stoke up the flames! Thank you!

  12. suehar says:

    Thank you for those kind, kind words about my novels, Lynne. I loved writing my Alaska books, and the decision to no longer write about the Aleut and Athabascan peoples was not my decision, but that of my publisher. I am currently trying to write romantic suspense (comedic and literary – wierd combination!) for the inspirational market. The process is like starting over again, and I’m learning patience and perserverance!

  13. Jennifer says:

    I have read all of your books cover to cover twice over and am ready to read them a 3rd time. I never get bored reading them. I love the wonderful way you have of transporting your reader. I feel as if I am there watching the story unfold. I actually cried the first time I read Mother Earth Father Sky. With other authors the first book is the best and the rest aren’t as good, but in your case each book is wonderful. If I were you I’d think twice about your “publisher”. I’m pretty sure you could amaze us one more time.

  14. suehar says:

    Thank you, Jennifer. I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed my novels!

  15. Blaine Salzman says:

    I just wanted to let you know that you’ve been very inspirational to me as a writer! Every time I read your works (so far I’ve read “Mother Earth Father Sky” and “My Sister the Moon”) I’m amazed by your beautiful storytelling style; I count you as my greatest influence in my own writing style–along with Jane Austen and J.R.R. Tolkien, my other two favorites. As I’m now dabbling in writing a fantasy novel set in a prehistoric ice age world, inspired primarily by “Mother Earth Father Sky” and Ursula K. LeGuin’s “Left Hand of Darkness,” I’m planning to re-read and finish the Ivory Carver Trilogy and The Storyteller Trilogy–no other contemporary author has captivated my imagination the way you have. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. suehar says:

    Wow, Blaine, thank you so much.

  17. Maggie Blue says:

    Hi Sue, โ€œMother Earth Father Skyโ€ is a perfect book – thank you so much for writing it. I also have My Sister the Moon to read; and I hope to read all your books soon. I love books about these times, love the history, learning about that. I’m sure all your readers appreciate your research. Did you finish any mystery books? Keep writing for us! Hugs, Maggie

  18. Anonymous says:

    where do I find the names of all the novels you wrote? I am currently reading SONG OF THE RIVER…how refreshing to read a book this interesting and not filled with filth….thank you for such a great book!

  19. suehar says:

    To Anonymous, April 6 – Sorry for my delay in response. I’m getting caught up from a vacation get-away. Click on our store. Honest you won’t have to buy anything, but each of the books is listed there with a blurb about contents.

  20. suehar says:

    Maggie Blue and Anon, thank you both for your kind words about my novels. I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed them. Maggie, I’ve finished two mysteries now. I have no assurance of publication, but my agent is helping me get them into shape. It’s a steep learning curve, and I’ve still so much to learn about writing mystery/suspense. Having a lot of fun though!

  21. Jim Birch says:

    Sorry to hear that you are no longer writing prehistoric Native American fiction. One thing I really liked about your second trilogy was your ability to seamlessly jump between time periods to explain the origin of certain histories and events. Although I appreciate your efforts to change genres, maybe you should consider looking for publishers who are more open to Native American prehistory. Kathleen O’Neal Gear and Michael Gear continue to publish regularly in that genre.

    Would love to hear you speak if you ever come downstate for us trolls who live “below the bridge.” I do meet up with Lynn and Caren Chappell now and then, and they speak highly of you.

  22. suehar says:

    Thank you for those kind words, Jim. Say Hi to Caren and Lynn for us!

  23. Jim Birch says:

    Ironically, Caren and Lynn now live in Harrison, MI.

  24. Stasha says:

    Your books are amazing! I am currently reading Cry of the Wind for the fifth time, I can never get tiered of reading them. Every time it still feels like the first time, and I have found more fans for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ Every time my family seems me, I have one of your books in hand. So a few decided to try reading your books. They will not be disappointed!

  25. suehar says:

    Thank you, Stasha. I’m so glad that my books have brought joy to you life. Thank you so much for writing to tell me!

  26. suehar says:

    By the way, Stasha, THANK YOU for those fans you’ve sent my way!! I’m delighted!

  27. Constance says:

    Dear Sue,
    You are a new and amazing discovery for me, not generally a reader of sagas. But the settings in place and time of Mother Earth Father Sky, and the values of the humans therein, are irresistable, as is the tension in the story. I’ve only just begun it but I know that it, and the sequels and your other works, will be my companions for a long time. Thank you so much for bringing added awareness to my natural life, and for new inspiration in my writing life after a long hiatus.
    I wish you nothing but kind muses and love for the great gifts you bring.

  28. suehar says:

    Wow, Constance, thank you so much. What a kind thing to say!!

  29. Vivian Ann Williams says:

    I have never forgotten reading My Sister The Moon and how much I adored the story. I knew at the time it was a trilogy , and since I have a new budding desire to read books again I’m going to start with buying this trilogy asap. Even though It’s been long time, I remember how your writing and information style put me in the middle of the village able to picture everything , as if I could hear the words of the different dialect being spoken , and the sounds and smells of village life , you made it very alive !
    Best of luck and grace and joy in your newest writing project .I think your a wonderful author and I also think if you have another “Alaska” novel in your soul , your FANS are waiting (:
    Thanks so much for your awesome Literature !
    I’m going to read the Story Tellers Trilogy too.
    Can’t wait to add your works to my collection.

  30. suehar says:

    Thank you so much, Vivian!

  31. Hi,
    Thanks a lot for your books, they have been offered me in a real strange situation, I already read the trilogy 2 times.
    JMalheiro – Portugal

  32. suehar says:

    Thank you for taking the time to write and let me know, Jorge! I see you are from Portugal. Did you read the books in English or Portuguese?

  33. Alex Hitchcock says:

    Hello, I wanted thank you for you work. I read your book “Mother Earth Father Sky” for the first time 10 years ago when I was 16 years old. I’ve read it several times since, and am very excited to have finally ordered the rest of the trilogy. I initially borrowed the book from my grandmother, and when she passed away I made sure I received her copy. I find the book transporting, and beautifully written, and for me it reminds me of my grandmother, who was also a strong woman who persevered through much difficulty.
    Anyway, I just wanted to let you know what your book meant to me, and get a chance to thank you. I’m look forward to reading everything else!

  34. suehar says:

    Your kind words make my heart sing. Thank you so very much! Your book order is coming your way. I’m delighted that Mother Earth Father Sky brought joy in to your life.

  35. Denise Hisey says:

    Hi Sue,
    Perhaps I’m having quite the blonde moment here, but I don’t see a list of your books anywhere on this page….as I read through some of the comments though I see you’ve written an Alaskan trilogy. This intrigues me as was born and raised there.
    I will look you up on Goodreads now! ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. suehar says:

    Not a blonde moment at all, Denise. I had forgotten that I hadn’t yet updated that page. My apologies. You’ll note the change now in a reference to a drop down menu that connects you to information about my two Alaska trilogies and my middle readers book! I Have several books also in the works, one half finished and two with my agent. I’m hoping that they will eventually find a publisher. My current WIP (Work In Progress) is a book of romantic suspense set in modern times tentative titled WARP. I’m about at the halfway point and hope to finish it by spring.

  37. Sissel Marysdatter Lind says:

    Dear Sue Harrison, Author of The Alaskan Triology: “Mother Earth-” and so on…
    Just want to tell you that I recently discovered your book no 1 in my local library, translated to Norwegian, and I read it.- Not only to compare it with Jean M Auels books about stoneagepeople in Europe, (shortly called “The People of The Earth”), the story located to Middle Europe. (I think theese books can be seen as a movie…)
    How interesting to read about the challenges they all had to fight through their lives (wherever they lived!)
    So far I’ve read only The first of your books in Norwegian, book 2 and 3 I have to read in Swedish… I’d love to read your books in my own language, and I really liked the map you presented in the first book. I missed it in the other books, because I didn’t have the first book in the house while reading the others… (and forgot to google the net…)
    I really hope more of your books will be translated to Norwegian in the future!
    More norwegian people should read about life just as far north as we are living!
    Greetings from Sissel Marysdatter.

  38. suehar says:

    Hello Sissel Marysdatter, I’m delighted that you read my books, and I thank you so much for taking time to leave a message on my website. I don’t get to decide where my books are published, but I, too, wish you could read them in your own language! In May (2013) all six of my Alaska books will be released as Ebooks, but that will be in English.

    May you have a warm spring season. I hope the snow is all melted where you live!
    Blessings, Sue

  39. D Bennett says:

  40. suehar says:

    Thank you so much for reading my books and for your kind comment!

  41. Melissa Belevender says:

    You have a nicely organized website. I like the WordPress format. The ebook versions should do well. I will take a look at some sites for the youth book reviews. Sounds like a fun project!

  42. suehar says:

    Thank you, Melissa!

  43. Heli says:

    Hi! I’m just right now reading the last of the six Alaska novels, and I’m definitely in love. I close my eyes and I can hear the voices of Chakliux and Aqamdax, telling their story. I see the dark waters, otters, karibus and bears, hear the wind and smell cold winter sea. You have given me with these books, my dreams written in stories. One day, I’ll fly to Alaska and wanna stand on a same ground, that Samiq, Yaa and Ligige’ stood.
    I do live with these.

  44. suehar says:

    Oh Heli, thank you so much for this lovely comment. You’ve put a very happy smile into my morning! I pray and hope that you are able someday to take that wonderful trip to Alaska!!

  45. amalia says:

    I have read the Ivory Carver trilogy 3 times in my life, the first time I was probably about 10. They are my favorite books that I have ever read. Currently, I am camping on the Homer spit and feel very close to the characters while immersed in their world and being constantly reminded of your beautiful and powerful words. I look forward to reading your other trilogy which I wasn’t aware existed until now.

  46. suehar says:

    Thank you so much Amalia! I have a photo of the spit on my office wall, such a beautiful place, and I hope you enjoy your time there. There’s a little fish and chips place down near the end of the spit that really serves good food!! (At least it was there last I was at the spit.) I hope you enjoy the next trilogy!

  47. Carol Wells says:

    I discovered your books while off work for the summer; I work at an elementary school. Last night I finished the last book of your second trilogy. I have to get up early but I was so close to the end I just couldn’t go to bed without finding out how K’os would receive her well deserved punishment. Your story of Daughter and Grandfather in the boat sent shivers up my spine; I cried over those lost toes. Thank you so much for taking me on this wonderful adventure. I feel as if I know these characters as friends and I’m going to miss them. I am a Native American who lives in Michigan and am so thrilled to have found your books. They really spoke to me.
    Chi Miigwetch (great thanks)!
    Carol

  48. suehar says:

    Chi Miigwetch to you, too, Carol, for these so very kind words about my books. I’m glad you enjoyed Daughter and Grandfather’s story. I loved writing it (except the toe part) and I love to hear from readers. You have such a proud heritage. Blessings on you and your family. Sue

  49. Sandy Weber says:

    I gave my almost 95 year old mother “My Sister the Moon” to read and she loved it and asked about sequel; so, I’ve ordered the trilogy for Mother’s Day. She’ll be thrilled. Your books are so well developed; even she noticed.
    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful adventures with the world. I’m looking forward to reading them and reconnecting with the characters.
    Blessed Be
    Sandy
