Suzanne is an author, professional playwright, director and performance-maker based in Perth, Western Australia.
She has been entertaining others since the tender age of nine when she wrote a play to cheer up her classmates during their sewing lessons…Always the drama queen, Suzanne has enjoyed honing her skills and techniques in dramatic storytelling through her plays, and now loves to pass this passion on to the next generations of storytellers and fabulous imaginers of wonder.
Now she has penned Tumblagooda for eight-to-ten-year-olds (as well as all those who like to think they have never really grown up). And she is busy thinking about and penning books two and three in the Tumblagooda trilogy from her custom-made Toyota Hiace Commuter van, affectionately known as Van Go, as well as other fantastical wonders of imagination. It’s all a far cry from teaching into the Creative Writing program at Curtin University, and inspiring artists with disability to follow their dreams.
You can join her and Van Go (if you dare) on their amazing journey round Oz in 2023 and 2024. Catch up with their shenanigans at Instagram #theferalbohemian.
And watch out—Suzanne and Tumblagooda will be coming to a school, or a library near you very soon to thrill you and fill you with tall tales and rambunctious rabble rousing!
