A Talk With Susan About London
Susan: I recently visited London, England, where I lived for nearly three years. The London skyline has changed immensely in the past ten years with new buildings like "The Shard" and "The Walkie Talkie". . . but one of my favorite places to visit is where I used to live: SE1.
Brinda: Thanks so much visiting. If I can't visit all these places, at least I can see them through your eyes.
While living in Los Angeles, Susan wrote the story for and produced a short film, which later won awards at the Houston International Film Festival and the Seabrook Film Festival. In 2002, Susan moved to London to further explore professional theater. While in London, her stage adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s “The Nose” was performed at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art’s George Bernard Shaw Theatre; and, scenes from her play The Prisoner: Princess Elizabeth were performed at HMS Tower of London. She returned home to the U.S. in 2005. In 2007, she was the line producer of the Emmy Award nominated Civil War short film Now & Forever Yours: Letters to an Old Soldier.
Her short stories, "The Nest" and "The Cask" have been published in different anthologies. Susan is currently working on her third novel. She also teaches writing and lives in Houston, Texas with her husband, son, and two crazy cats - Lexi and Merlin.
