with an education background
writing articles, web copy, blog posts, and more for readers who love to learn
Hi, I'm Sue Smith Romero
Would you like to work with a writer who's also a teacher?
I earned my degree in magazine journalism and history from Syracuse University and worked as a reporter, editor, and freelance article writer.
I've also worked as a substitute teacher in grades PreK-12 and homeschooled my three children for nine years.
Combining writing and education, I’ve been a communications coordinator for a library system, a private high school, and an Irish cultural center.
“I could always rely on Susan to submit very clean, well-researched, tightly-edited copy, which was a huge time saver for me. She sweated the details so that I didn’t have to. I appreciated the quality and accuracy of her work.”

A Few Words from Article Interviewees
Fantastic article about Young Scholars! You wrote an amazing piece and hit all of the benchmarks for our program. That is talent!
— Pam Matt, Executive Director Young Scholars Liberty Partnership Program
That was a fantastic, fantastic piece. Thank you so much for doing such a great job in conveying culture in the spirit of what we’re trying to do. The quotes, the highlights of other entrepreneurs..... It was the best look I think anyone’s really given at this organization. Thanks so much for doing an amazing job with it.
— Ryan Miller, Director
Sue's article on the Special Olympics skating team was incredible! She showed natural acceptance and inclusion without using the word or pushing for it!! Sue was very sensitive to our children's needs yet showcased how they are more alike than different! I cried and smiled at the same time. The BEST article I have ever read by far on the topic of special needs!!

Sue came along on a photo journey with my father and I, and it was a lot of fun to say the least! She is an excellent writer and judging by the way she portrayed us in the article, she really seems to understand what we're trying to do with this project. Thank you for the amazing write up, Sue!! Your talents are only matched by your friendliness and kind heart!

The Mohawk Valley Through the Lens
Lilian Bland, early aviator
This summer I embarked upon a new writing adventure. I'm working on a book of historical fiction for middle-grade readers (ages 8-12) about the first woman in the world to design, build, and fly an aeroplane. Set near Belfast, Ireland, in 1909-1910, it tells the story of Lilian Bland's quest to fly. She was a colorful character herself, but I've also enjoyed reading lots of other fascinating stories on my research journey into the early days of powered flight.
