About Susan

2014-11-22 12.12.02

After academic courses in Arts and IT, I graduated from a Masters in Writing in NUI Galway with first class honours in 2003. Since then, I have had short stories published nationwide in a variety of good quality magazines and publications. White Feathers, my novel about passion, betrayal and war, was selected as one of the final ten in the Irish Writers Centre Novel Fair, 2013. It has now been acquired for publication in 2014 by O’Brien Press/Brandon.

I have been thrice shortlisted for the Hennessy New Irish Writing Award. I am also featured in a special sci-fi/fantasy anthology Music For Another World and the fundraising anthology 50 Stories For Pakistan. I have been longlisted and shortlisted for the Fish Short Story Contest, the Bristol Prize, the Raymond Carver Short Story Award and other competitions. Read more here about anthologies featuring my work.

I have facilitated writers’ workshops for diverse groups in arts centres in Ireland. Details and testimonials available here.
