Suzanne Sanders Overstreet
Suzanne Sanders Overstreet is the Creative Writing Program Coordinator at Oberlin College, and previously wrote special interest stories for a local newspaper. After taking creative writing classes at Oberlin, her lifelong interest in preserving stories was renewed. After her father passed away, she was concerned the stories he told about his childhood and experiences in WWII would be forgotten, so she wrote Wait For Me. As she unearthed facts during the course of her research, there were some disappointing surprises about what truly happened many decades ago. She has seven children and lives on a farm in northeast Ohio with her husband, a dog and four cats.
