Hello, I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Susan Montgomery and I am an artist and author, and I love the ukulele! I love to write children’s books about the ukulele, and I’ve also published one-hand ukulele music books. I enjoy publishing books in other genres, too, and I incorporate my art into each one. Creating art, writing, and playing music helps me cope with chronic pain. Check out the Books tab above for a list of my published books.

New Release:  My memoir, Bloom in Barren Soil: A Memoir of Creativity and Healing is now available!

Coming Soon: My book, Famous Ukulele Musicians: Biographical Stories for Kids will be released soon!

Work in Progress: I’ve been working on the illustrations for book 3 in The Strumming Seahorse series.
