About Susan Wooldridge

I live by the most beautiful beaches in the world in the magical "pirate village" of Fort Walton Beach, Florida (home of the annual Billy Bowlegs pirate festival). I have a little condo on the island with a terrific coastal view of our pristine white beach: a beach that I have loved since I was a small child. I'm transforming it into the perfect condo for both work and play. Come on over and work away here! :)

“The illustrations took a lot of time,” Billie Webb explains. “I wanted the images to properly convey the myriad of emotions that the characters experienced.

“I am very happy with the evening scenes. I wanted the transition from noise to peace to become almost magical, and I really think it worked!

“However, not all of the illustrations were successful right off the bat. I did really struggle with the appearance of the mother, and at the last minute I completely changed her appearance! So yes, this book took a while. I did not want to release it until I felt I got it right.”

The Kindle version of “Anna Leese Likes Peace” will be promoted for free for 5 days: July 21 – 25.

Omaha Author Presents New Book with Look-a-Like Toys


July 6, 2015 – Billie Webb, Omaha author of seven children’s picture books (including the popular Kindle book “Red Cat, Red Cat, Red Cat, Blue),” traveled to Utah over the Fourth of July weekend to visit with family and friends… and to present a very special gift to a two year old little girl.

On July 5th, at a small gathering in the home of a friend in Pleasant Grove, UT, Billie presented a copy of her latest book “ Anna Leese Likes Peace” to two-year-old Annalise. Webb handed Annalise a large gift bag, and much to everyone’s surprise, the toddler reached into the bag and pulled out several stuffed animals and even a doll that matched the colorful illustrations in the book!

“Toy R Us” makes stuffed animals that very strongly resemble some of the animals in the book,” Billie explained. “The monkey is the best (Toys R Us) toy of all because it screeches just like the monkey in the book!”

“Anna Leese Likes Peace” is a classic bedtime story for young children. The book contains large, colorful illustrations, silly animal sounds, and a popular lullaby. It concludes with a peaceful evening experience between mother and child.

Currently  “Anna Leese Likes Peace” is only available for sale in paperback form on Although there is no firm release date for the Kindle version, Wooli Labs, LLC plans to release the Kindle version “very soon.”
