About the Author
Children's book author, mother and philanthropist, Sue Ganz-Schmitt, is passionate about helping children, and families globally. She is co-founder of an AIDS orphanage in Haiti, has traveled to China to help medically challenged orphans, and set up a birthing clinic in rural India. Yet, her writing is inspired by local children.
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.

This book struck the perfect tone. It was fun and light, but took her through the entire discovery of the allergy. The first half of the book reads like a normal fairy tale, until - uh-oh, the princess has a reaction to a peanut. My 2-year old was thrilled and exclaimed aloud, "Mom! The princess is allergic to nuts just like me." This is her favorite book. Instead of crying when we threw out a lot of her old favorite foods, she helped - because that is what they did in the castle. And, she understands why we have an epi-pen always with us and even the skin prick tests she had to do. We showed the book to her pediatrician and she was so impressed that she ordered one for the office waiting room.
Do you have a little girl with an allergy? Get her this book. She will love it. It might be a little cutesy for a boy. My daughter was giggly when the prince told the princess he was allergic to living without her and would give up peanut butter forever to be her husband. But, boys might find that sentiment a bit mushy :).
