About the Author
When she was eight years old, Christina Wuerzberger created Susie Applehead originally as a grown-up detective who could communicate with animals, in a story that was turned in as a second grade project. Twenty years later, now with a husband and two beautiful daughters of her own, Christina found the story she had written as a child inside of a box tucked away in her parents’ closet. She reimagined the story in a way she knew her daughters, Anabella and Charlotte, could relate to, and thus Susie Applehead and the Mysterious Ticket was born.
Besides writing, Christina also enjoys spending her time volunteering at the school and being a Girl Scout leader. As a family they love to give back to the community and organize various different drives in which they get the school, family, and friends involved.
