Introducing Dr. Sue Schwartz, author of A Love Like No Other

“I came to Outskirts Press from a very difficult experience from another online. My first contact was Terri. In my one hour consultation, I learned all about the process for my book including cost and profit. I then decided to take the plunge and never second guessed my decision. Terri answered every question promptly and continually steered me in the right direction. When I moved along into the production phase and met up with Dana, it was pure professionalism. Again, she was prompt and clear about the path to follow. I have published before with a “brick and mortar” company which ran smoothly but took longer. The time frame for this book was 9 weeks from initial phone call to books coming to my door. Totally amazing. I have recommended your company to two, so far, budding authors. Thank you to Terri, Dana, and the entire, unseen production crew.”

Dr. Sue Schwartz has had a fulfilling career for many years in the field of special education. She has worked primarily with families who have children who have hearing loss and other challenges as well. She held many workshops for grandparents and found that they often did not have all of the information they needed or were sheltered by their own children. They were worried, as all grandparents would be, not only about their grandchild but also their own child. Dr. Schwartz gathered these stories from grandparents just like you and hope you will enjoy reading what they have to share. Dr. Schwartz is the author/editor of two other titles each of which is in its third edition, Choices In Deafness and The New Language of Toys. Dr. Schwartz and her husband, Sid enjoy spending time with their three children, their spouses, and of course, their five lively grandchildren. She feels grandparenting is the best invention ever.
