Susanne Strauss is the award-winning author and photographer of Little Jewel’s Remarkable Journey, a children’s picture book about a baby Allen’s hummingbird. She had the wonderful opportunity to observe and photograph hummingbirds that had nested and raised their young in her garden. Her photographs inspired the story of Little Jewel. Susanne displays her hummingbird photographs at the local library and gives presentations on baby hummingbirds at schools and nature stores. She also created Sunnystyle Books to publish children’s books on nature and animals, inspiring a love of nature in children. Susanne enjoys traveling to national parks, photographing wildlife, and backyard birding.
