Susan Aguilo

*Postponed* YA & Children's Author Susan Aguilo to Visit GREC

*Our author visit has been postponed due to illness, a new date will be scheduled later on.*
Susan Aguilo grew up in Whitby, Ontario where she spent hours playing in the backyard and created fantasies of imaginary worlds. A reluctant reader herself it wasn’t until grade 4 when she was introduced to Dr Seuss that she discovered her love of reading.  Susan soon began writing stories of imaginary worlds with pirates and princesses.


Mother of a reluctant reader Susan applied her gift of imagination creating bedtime stories for her son from a very young age.  Prince Alejandro and his faithful steed Elmo led many adventures and these stories morphed into the series you see today.


On a school visit, a grade 5 student who loves reading her stories challenged her to write her first novel for middle school, tweens.  With a story-line already perculating she began to write the first book of A Guardian Series, "The Earth's End." A 184-page, fantasy fiction book. Both series are based on her son Alex, and his cousin Victoria.


When she's not busy writing, she spends her time visiting schools and libraries across southern Ontario sharing her love of writing and storytelling.
