Author. Writer. Creator. Theatre & Pop Culture Nerd. Super Star.
I could tell you a thousand things that are true about me: I’ve been writing since the moment I could pick up a crayon, stick out my tongue and write the letter “S” and the letter “Z” (it’s a tricky thing for a 5 year old. Think about it). I wrote and illustrated my first picture book at age six; I wrote tragic, romantic poetry from the age of eleven; I wrote short stories (& letters to Dolly magazine) when I was fifteen; I studied community theatre as a teenager and studied Performing Arts and Professional Writing and Editing in Ballarat in my twenties. I wrote and produced my own shows and worked with some inspiring people. All of these things are true.
The Number One truth about myself is that I have the mind, heart and soul of a writer. In my life, I have written several books- all that live in my “bottom drawer”. I have studied the craft of writing and produced plays for community theatre; and the bottom line is that I am never more fulfilled than when I am writing, creating and editing, for myself and for others. Turning forty has forced my hand and here I am demanding something more.
Millions of millenials have paved the way for me to think “hey, if a twelve year old can be a millionaire youtube star, then I can definitely write a blog”. The sole purpose of this site is to allow me to proclaim the word ‘writer’. Occupation? Writer. Yes, that is me.
And finally, this blog is the pathway to satisfy my five-year-old self and achieve my lifelong dream of holding my book-baby in my own two hands.

So come with me, SuzSta blogging fans and join me on the journey to publishing my first novel, a fantasy fiction manuscript entitled “The Beginners Guide to The Afterlife” .
“Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over.
– Stephen King
