Sally Huss has been a King Features syndicated author for many years with her daily newspaper panel Happy Musings. She is also a #1 best-selling author on Amazon with several of her books. Sally has been a writer and artist all of her life. She is a native Californian who graduated from USC with a degree in Fine Arts. At the same time she was developing her writing and art, she was honing her tennis skills. She became National Junior Champion and a Wimbledon semi-finalist. When she finally put down her competitive tennis rackets she created her own special "Zen" tennis, which she taught to celebrity clientele in Beverly Hills and Malibu (Barbra Streisand, Joel Gray, Larry Hagman, Milos Forman and more.) Later she wrote a book about her method called How to Play Power Tennis with Ease (Harcourt, Brace Publishers.)
Moving from tennis courts to the entertainment industry, Sally worked in television then became assistant to Samuel Goldwyn, Jr. in film, followed by managing Paul Simon's music publishing company.
In the late 70's Sally married Marv Huss, head of advertising and promotion for Hallmark Cards. Marv expanded Sally's art and writing into 26 Sally Huss Galleries across the country, and licensed products. Through this, her creations have danced across lines of greeting cards, ceramics, wallpaper, clothing, purses and totes, baby bibs, books and children's books.
Today Sally's paintings brighten walls in homes, office buildings, restaurants and hotels across the country. Her art hangs in the homes of Clint Eastwood, Joel Gray, Larry Hagman, Kirk Douglas, Hillary Clinton, Jack Jones, Mitt Romney, and many more. Her colorful gifts, products and art delight hearts everywhere.
In 2006 King Features syndicated Sally's "Happy Musings" for newspapers, combining her whimsical illustrations with her uplifting thoughts. She has combined many of these happy thoughts into several books (Happiness Starts with a Thought -- Volume 1 and Volume 2.)
Besides books on tennis (Eight Golden Rules for How to Play Your Best Tennis) and finding the love of your life (How to Get Your Man), Sally Huss gives advice to Oprah in a book (The Perfect Diet for Oprah and You), plus Sally has created a large line of children's books. These include a book of character-building games (A Boat Full of Animals), a delightful counting book (Every Child Counts), a series called "The Importance of..." (Trying New Things, Understanding "No," Believing in Yourself, etc.), and many more. These books not only tickle the heart, they are designed with a lesson in mind.
All of Sally Huss' creations are happy in nature and free-spirited in style. She invites you to visit www.happychildrensbooks.com and view her happy art and products here on her "Store."
