Stardust and Courage

Mindful writing to go deeper, grow and imagine

About me

Hello! I'm Suzanne Alyssa Andrew, an author, writing instructor and the host of the Stardust and Courage podcast. I help writers like you to move past blocks and fears to express yourself fully in your voice, and in your power.


I emphasize courage, curiosity and compassion, and ways we can all write with more ease and enjoyment. Writing doesn't have to feel hard when we're having fun! Writing can be satisfying, and help us grow.

I'm here to help writers go deeper, grow and imagine. A big part of that is encouragement and empowerment.

My writing practice

My writing is an invitation for readers to see things in a new way. It's about expansiveness and solutions beyond the obvious. I love to play with perspective to show what might be different, and what’s possible. My novel, Circle of Stones, is an action-adventure love story that races across the country. Read stories from my forthcoming story collection.
