About the Author
Even Superheroes Get Diabetes was created when her neighbor was diagnosed at the age of three with type 1 diabetes. Wanting to help the distressed family, she searched the internet for inspiring children's books, then decided that she would have to write the kind of book she was unable to find.
ESGD has reached #4 in the category of Children's Health on Amazon.com, and can be found in doctor's offices nationwide. Sue has been a featured speaker at Dodger Stadium during the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's annual walk, which hosted over 20,000 attendees.
This author's second book, The Princess and the Peanut, grew out of compassion toward a friend's kindergartner with a severe peanut allergy. And, her newest project, Even Pirates Get Leukemia, evolved after her daughter's playmate battled and won a fight against leukemia.
Identifying that medically challenged children are underserved by the children's literary world, Sue strives to provide high quality and inspiring books for children and family who need heroes and icons they can relate to from diagnosis and beyond.
As a San Diego State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Business/Marketing in 1986, Sue's immediate goal was to get out and see the world. She fulfilled this by working in international sales and licensing for the entertainment industry, managing customers across 40 countries.
Sue Ganz-Schmitt lives in a rural mountain community in Los Angeles with her two daughters and husband. She produces children's musical theater, has sung on Broadway in RENT, and writes for the local paper.

Most of all, it helps our kids feel like superheroes (because they are) and has a good lesson about helping others all around the world who may not have the same medical amenities that we have.
We bought all the books available when our son was first diagnosed and they were out of date on the info (i.e. "can't eat birthday cake" and only "apples" WHAT??!! That's not the way we care for diabetes!). Plus they were pretty boring or lacked inspiration. This book is current, engaging and very inspiring for kids with this condition. Their lives do change and they sometimes need to be superheros to cope and this book brings that all to the fore in a very kid friendly way!
Thank you for this book!
