Suzanne Schlosberg is a writer and editor known for her lighthearted take on health and parenting topics, whether it’s bedwetting, infertility, or the travails of breastfeeding twins.

Suzanne has collaborated with pediatric urologist Steve Hodges, M.D., on two books: IT’S NO ACCIDENT and the illustrated children’s book BEDWETTING AND ACCIDENTS AREN’T YOUR FAULT. She also blogs with Dr. Hodges at, a website offering support and solutions for childhood toileting problems.

Among Suzanne’s other collaborations: THE GOOD NEIGHBOR COOKBOOK, with chef Sara Quessenberry, THE ULTIMATE DIET LOG, with nutritionist Cynthia Sass, creator of the New York Times bestseller Flat Belly Diet, and WEIGHT TRAINING FOR DUMMIES, with exercise expert Liz Neporent.

Suzanne is solely responsible for THE CURSE OF THE SINGLES TABLE: A TRUE STORY OF 1001 NIGHTS WITHOUT SEX, a chronicle of her epic dry spell, which lasted longer than the Kennedy administration. Suzanne married the redhead who ended her drought, and thanks to high-tech handiwork she recounted in “I Used an Egg Donor,” Suzanne and her husband have twin boys. They live in Bend, Oregon, which Suzanne considers the best place on earth.

As a content writer for Novaerus, Suzanne writes blog posts, white papers, and case studies about the twin crises facing hospitals and nursing homes worldwide: the rise of superbugs and the spread of healthcare acquired infections. For Ideal Option, she creates content about another medical crisis: the opioid epidemic.

Suzanne develops all the content — books, guides, infographics, blog posts, social media posts — for, the website she co-founded with pediatric urologist Steve Hodges, M.D., of Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Their mission is to educate families, medical professionals, and teachers about enuresis and encopresis, conditions overlooked, misunderstood, and under-treated by the medical profession.

As a content developer for Mazlo, a Seattle-based company specializing in behavior change, Suzanne interviewed experts, organized their ideas into micro-lessons, and wrote video scripts on topics including confident speaking, business etiquette, time management, and mindful eating. 

When she’s not working, you can find Suzanne swimming, cross-country skiing, watching Icelandic crime dramas, practicing Spanish, or reminding her teenagers that the dishes go in the dishwasher.
