Sue Hughes

The Claire Bear children's book series is the first for author Sue Hughes, a pilot for 13 years and a flight instructor since 2001. She has enjoyed a varied career as an aviation technical writer and copywriter. In her life before aviation, she dabbled as a teacher, tour guide, museum exhibit manager, swim instructor, and baseball/softball umpire.

Sue taught her husband Dale to fly several years ago, and they have since purchased a Piper Arrow that they use for business and pleasure. Sue founded Powder Puff Pilot, which provides pilot gear and accessories for women pilots—past, present, and future.
