Australian Stories as diverse and unique as the land I live in.
Suzanne Brandyn was born on the edge of the outback of NSW. She pursued life from the hot, red dust of cattle country to our cities and small country towns. She has mustered sheep on a horse and a motorbike, spotlighted for foxes and learned to shoot a rifle, dived the Great Barrier Reef and surrounding islands, speared fish, swam with sharks and dolphins, avoided sea snakes and moray eels, and taken free rides on sea turtles.
With the desire to return to rural Australia, she now resides in a small, country seaside town with the ocean at her feet and a rural landscape beyond her back door.
Suzanne is a member of Romance Writers of Australia. Recently a team member of Hearts Talk magazine, involved in the Critique Partners Register scheme, undertaking technical and database management, contributing to the New Members Liaison scheme, and member spotlight. She has currently taken a break to spend more time on her writing.
A word from Suzanne
You can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl.
I guess that's why there has always been two sides to me. One as described above and the other having a tendency to be drawn to the dazzle of a city. The tug has always been prevalent.
Currently I live in a small, coastal country town with a population of 2.200 people. The nearest town is half an hour away, and the nearest city over two and a half hours by car. I drive a lot, and use this time to plot and think about my current manuscript, or about writing in general.
I frequent my place of birth in rural Australia as often as I can. The air seems to bring an inner peace and the people treat you as though you have never left. They say there is no place like home. I agree. That is if I can keep my feet still long enough and not have one boot over the mountain, or the other stilettoed foot tapping away in a city.
