I've worked as a derivatives dealer, a political analyst and a F1 powerboating PR girl.
I've won a few things: the 2016 ROSA Imbali award for excellence in romance writing, the 2012 Mills & Boon Voice of Africa competition, the Christie's Land of Peace art competition (as a teenager), and a Silver Leaf award for PR (team).
Because of an epic cake addiction, I'm a dedicated road runner who's after a half-marathon PB.
I consider my time spent working in a bakery and a nursery as way better than any corporate job I've ever had.
I've written speeches for captains of industry including Bill Gates (it was once, it was short, and yes, it counts).
5 things you didn't know about Suzanne's writing
The first thing I wrote was a soap opera about five schoolgirls called Saints, it's trashy as hell, and I've still got it tucked away in a box somewhere.
My first novel was saved on a floppy disc, so that I'd never lose it. Yes, well...
I've written, and shot, short films. I'd like to do more of these too.
Sometimes I feel like a complete hack out on the hustle. For money, I've written press releases, scripts, articles, blog posts, sales decks, research papers, columns, thought leadership pieces, marketing copy, brochures, web copy, ebooks, and so on, and so forth.
It appears that The Hunt was the last book to be released by Ellora's Cave before they closed. A dubious distinction, but I'll take it.
