Jeannie brings homeschool pioneer, author, and curriculum producer, Susan Marlow onto the show to discuss creating a love for learning in your children. Susan homeschooled her children back in the early days of the modern homeschool movement, when it was illegal in many states. She now helps her daughter homeschool her grandchildren. She also continues to write delightful historical fiction novels that homeschoolers of all ages love. Jeannie and Susan discuss using historical fiction as a means to teach language arts, culture, and history, how to make learning a joy, and what it was like being a homeschool pioneer, blazing the trail for homeschooling in the 1980s. Susan also shares about her fiction writing course and videos, as well as the writing contests she hosts each year.
Susan Marlow is a former homeschool mom and the author of the Circle C and Goldtown historical adventures series (36 books). She loves to connect with readers at homeschool conventions and on her Andi Carter’s Blog. She enjoys helping young writers learn to improve their writing with her Writing Workshop. In her spare time she is a freelance editor and also helps homeschool her grandchildren. She and her husband, Roger, live on fourteen acres of ponderosa pine at 3,500 feet in north-central Washington state.
Jeannie Fulbright, a 24-year veteran homeschooler, is the author of the #1 best-selling, multi award-winning Apologia Young Explorer science series: Exploring Creation with Astronomy, Chemistry and Physics, Botany, Zoology, and Anatomy & Physiology. She is also the author of the action-packed historical time travel book series Rumble Tumbles Through Time, as well as preschool science books and activity kits, the Charlotte Mason Heirloom Planner, and many high-quality Charlotte Mason based products. Jeannie and her husband Jeff became empty nesters in 2019. All four of their children all went to the University of Georgia on scholarship (homeschooling works!). For more than 20 years Jeannie has traveled around the country speaking to homeschoolers at conventions, covering a plethora of topics from Charlotte Mason to marriage and prayer.
