Telling the story of America's freedoms--and the leaders who guided them into law--has become a passion for Suzanne Munson. History comes alive in her lecturers and in her breakthrough books:
Jefferson's Godfather: The Man Behind the Man -- a biography about Founding Father George Wythe, currently earning a five-star rating and good reviews on Amazon
The Metaphysical Thomas Jefferson -- an exploration of what Jefferson's current views might be about American government, higher education, foreign policy, military, media, and race relations, including observations about Sally Hemings and "song and dance man" Alexander Hamilton.

After a career in corporate and nonprofit communications, Suzanne found time for her first loves, history and writing. With family dating to the first decades of American settlement, she has always had a special interest in the nation's Colonial period. She grew up hearing about the exploits of her eighteenth-century pioneer kindred on the country's western frontier and about the trials of earlier ancestors in seventeenth-century Jamestown, Virginia.
She believes that the enormous contributions of the country's Founding Fathers provide essential lessons for the future and should be revisited thoughtfully today. She makes her home in Central Virginia.
