Susan Elizabeth Hale
With the Great Mother Tree dying in the Shining Land, eleven-year-old Emma Oliver must sing the Song of Creation before it’s too late. Emma doesn’t know that she comes from generations of tree singers, passed from mother to daughter. She doesn’t believe she can sing.
Her ailing grandmother has just come to live with the family. Her father is hardly ever at home. Her mother has been acting strange. To add to Emma’s troubles, her mother’s great uncle from England is coming to stay. Then, a strange old woman wearing a hat full of feathers appears mysteriously in her garden. She gives Emma a white swan feather that emits a haunting melody.
Emma’s only solace is the oak tree in her garden, which she names Annie Oakley. What she does not yet know is that Annie is part of a network of tree spirits who disguise themselves as old women. These spirits have come to Peachtree City to help Emma remember her mission to sing the Song of Creation and save the Great Mother tree.

There is the technical bio listing books and editorial magazines, but that part gets boring.
My newest book: Super Piggy!
Meet Oscar, the deep-chested dog who just wants to play chase. When Piggy arrives at the family’s home, he is quickly recruited as Oscar’s best friend. The small pig grows bigger every day, and so does the trouble he gets into…much of it thanks to Kitty Bear, the family cat. She takes her antics a bit far, tricking Piggy and Oscar and framing them for spilled trash.
Yet, for all her trouble-making, Kitty Bear isn’t all bad. She also sneaks extra food to Piggy when their human family isn’t looking. So, when a stray attacks Kitty Bear, Piggy is not able to forget it.
Follow Piggy as he leads Oscar into a daring mission to protect the neighborhood pets from the violent stray that attacked Kitty Bear. Can he keep the plan from going a little astray itself?
