Inspirational Literature

Solana Beach author Sally Huss uses her gift of writing and illustrating to help inspire people to pursue lives filled with happiness and good values. An author, artist, and seasoned tennis pro, Sally is an example of what extraordinary things can be accomplished if you combine passion and hard work.

By the time she graduated from USC with a degree in Fine Arts, Sally had already become a tennis champion, having won the Wimbledon and U.S. Junior titles. She then went on to be a semifinalist in the Wimbledon Women’s Division. Sally ultimately opened a renowned tennis facility and health spa in Aspen with her husband, before building a line of 26 art galleries across the country to feature her own art, writings, and products. When the economy fell, Sally’s retail galleries went online – which allowed her to focus on her children’s books.

Sally’s line of highly-acclaimed children’s books currently consists of 45 light and whimsical stories that help subtly plant the seeds of kindess, sharing, and helpfulness. “My motivation for writing children’s books is that young children, I believe, need some help to establish good values and ways to develop emotional and social skills that will serve them well throughout their lives,” shared Sally. Sally’s collection of children’s books is constantly growing, always featuring new lessons to help children live in a happy, healthy manner. In addition to her books for children, Sally has written eight books for adults, including Eight Golden Rules for How to Play Your Best Tennis and The Importance of Living Happy.
