Contemporary Romance Writer, Urban Fantasy YA Writer and all round good girl most days - sometimes cheeky.


Background Information

Her love of romance novels came from reading her first adult romance at the age of 14 – Once a Princess by Johanna Lindsey. Her love of romance grew from that first book and she would save up pocket money to buy Johanna Lindsey’s books. Jude Deveraux and Nora Roberts became a big part of her teenage romance reading years. But it was reading Stephanie Laurens and the Cynster Series with the novel A Secret Love that inspired Suzan to pursue her writing career professionally along with her fan base family.

Suzan branched out in local bookstores, reading different genres including science fiction and fantasy as well as John Marsden’s Tomorrow series. A Librarian caught her once reading the ending of book before she had borrowed it.

In 1997 at the tender age of 16, Suzan submitted a fantasy/romance manuscript to Penguin Australia and received back a one of the best rejection letters from the Editor of the Books for Children and Young Adults, Sandy Webster. Her encouragement in the letter and advice has stayed with Suzan always: “I’m sorry that we can’t give you a more positive response. However, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading your chapters, which have such a fabulous energy… I trust that you will continue to develop your writing, and to read widely. It is important, at this stage, that you continue to enjoy writing rather than worrying too much about the opinions of publishing houses… I hope you keep it up, and I wish you the best of luck.”  

In 1998, Suzan completed a professional Romance Writers Course with the Australian College of Journalism. Writing amazing novels that entertain and spark the imagination is what she is passionate about in life. Sharing her storytelling with readers all over the world is one of her ultimate goals.  Suzan one day hopes to hit the New York Times Bestseller list at the number 1 spot and is excited about achieving such a dream.

Mad About the Boy is her first completed novel. She has several works in progress.
