Suzanne Maggio is an author living in Northern California.

Her debut memoir The Cardinal Club will be published in December 2019.



I am a social worker, teacher and writer.
I'm the granddaughter of Italian immigrants, which means I'm passionate.... about almost everything.
I grew up in New Jersey eating sweet corn, going ‘down the shore’ and listening to Bruce Springsteen and Southside Johnny.
I learned to drive a stick shift as a freshman at Boston College.
I’m the mother of two amazing young men.
I love sports, especially baseball, which is a lot like life.
And I always root for the underdog.

The Cardinal Club

coming December 1, 2019 from Adelaide Books

The Cardinal Club is heartwarming, gut-wrenching, funny, sad, unfailingly honest, and immensely readable. Suzanne Maggio’s memoir of her relationship with her mother and her siblings is beautifully written and deeply moving. Filled with personal stories and universal themes, you will laugh and cry as you read. Highly recommended.
