I’m Sue Leamy Kies

Wisconsin Writer

Welcome to my world of writing!


After taking a walk with my dog Jojo, I spend my mornings writing. It is therapy. Whether it's fiction or creative nonfiction, I cleanse my mind by playing with words and weaving them into plots. What can be more fun than that? Yes, once an English teacher, always a story lover.


I'm delighted to announce that my teaching memoir My Homecoming Dance: Reflections on Teaching in Wisconsin, published by the Wisconsin Writers Association (, was released on Tuesday, June 11, 2024. You can order it  online from any major book seller. If your favorite bookstore doesn't carry it, please request they get it!

I enjoy talking about writing, teaching, and the creative process and would love to visit your group. Visit the "Speaking and Events" page on this site for my contact information.

Thanks and happy reading to all! ---Sue
