The Mouse and the Light post 9-11 fable, illustrated by Emma Overman. Now with symphonic arrangement and original; score by Eric Chappelle.

Lisa Suhay is an author, as well as a working journalist turning out features and columns for major daily newspapers, mainly The New York Times New Jersey and Metro sections. Mrs. Suhay works from home while raising three, very active young sons, ages 8, 7 and 3.

 Her career began in tiny weekly publications in New Jersey and moved on to covering hard news in the Middle East in the early 1990s as a freelance writer.

 In 1995 Ms. Suhay and her husband Robert, a newspaper designer and carpenter, chose to refurbish an old sailboat and leave life, as they knew it, in their wake. They moved aboard a 38-foot sailboat with their infant son and took off on a cruise of the Eastern Seaboard while Lisa was pregnant with a second child.

 The family returned to land in New Jersey in 1998 and Ms. Suhay, pregnant with son number three, began writing columns for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Family Circle Magazine. Then she took on the added task of being a correspondent for the New York Times, New Jersey and Metro sections.

 Her first book, Tell Me a Story, (Paraclete Press April, 2000) came into being as a means of helping the author and her family cope with the transition to modern life and the challenging situations they encountered in suburbia. Bullies on school busses and in boardrooms were transformed into Magpies and Apes.

 These simple life lessons, first told to her children as impromptu bedtime tales to solve the days heartaches, have touched adults lives in a new way. Through the Internet these fables have traveled the globe. The Mouse and the Light written to help children cope with terrorism, is currently being performed by professional storytellers and with symphonies in Boston, Wellesley, Ma., New York, New Jersey, Arizona, Michigan and overseas in Thailand and Argentina.
