Suzi will also be talking about the process of writing, publication and self-publication for those budding authors among you, or anyone with an interest in the process.
Susan D. Curtis is from Great Britain, and has been living in Zagreb since 2005. She graduated in English and Art from Surrey University in 1991 and two years later, during the break-up of ex-Yugoslavia, she was sent by the United Nations Association to work on a welfare project with Bosnian refugees in Slovenia. Her first work - So Like Fire – came out of that experience and was published in Slovenia in 1998.
Suzi has a passion for travel which has taken her all over the world - from Israel to Hong Kong to New Zealand; while her work in the field of humanitarian aid and education has given her insight into a broad range of human experience. Taking inspiration from this, her writing often highlights the plight of the marginalized and the neglected; individuals or groups who find themselves on the outside of the mainstream.
Her most recently published work, ‘Crossing Borders’ (Booksurge, LLC, 2006) concentrates on the controversial issue of immigration, and takes place in modern-day Romania. A post Cold-War thriller, it subverts the traditional ‘Who done it?’ formula by leaving not the perpetrator, but the crime a secret until the final chapters.
‘So Like Fire’ and ‘Crossing Borders’ are both available on Amazon.com
