Writer in residence: Susannah Hardy
Originally an actor, Susannah completed a Bachelor of Arts at the University of NSW before running away to study acting in Paris. Back in Australia, her work has involved anything from film and television roles to being one of two singing/rollerblading Carmen Mirandas, Tutti & Frutti, and creating sketch comedy for Foxtel. During this time, Susannah discovered a passion for writing, and fourteen years ago, started working freelance, creating feature articles and copy for print and online publications. However, in between writing on parenting and home interiors, Susannah pursued her love of women's contemporary fiction, and now enjoys creating stories about the more comic side of life and love.
Her debut novel Loving Lizzie March was published by Pan Macmillan in 2021.
Susannah lives in Sydney's inner west with her husband, two young daughters and recently acquired puppy.
