Susan Hiers Foster

Biography

Susan is the author of two children’s books, Because God Tells Me So, dealing with her challenges of visiting her mother in a nursing home, and Leaping Over Walls, discussing the subject of bullying. In both books, Susan incorporated various family members in her tales, including her grandson John, and grand-dog Vito, a narrating pug.

After two decades spent mostly in the Washington DC area with her Army officer husband and children, the Shreveport native returned home. Susan’s professional life started in newspapers, including The Shreveport Times, The South Towne Courier, and as city editor of the Leesville Leader. She retired as director of the Noel Neighborhood Food Pantry after 17 years. What started as a job out of her comfort zone, would eventually become a passion for working with volunteers in serving a community living with a food shortage.

Susan enjoys being a group leader in Bible Study Fellowship, and volunteers in the jail ministry of Purchased Not for Sale, a program working with women in human trafficking. Susan is currently serving as The American Christian Fiction Writers Louisiana chapter’s vice president.

As always, Susan’s best days are spent with husband Rick, their adult children and spouses, active grandchildren, and their on-the- loose pets. Her second-best days are happily curled up with a book, fully appreciating someone else’s hard work.
