Susanna Freymark


Susanna Freymark is editor of the Richmond River Express Examiner in country NSW.

Previously, she was a primary school teacher in Central Australia and years later owned a children’s bookshop in London.

She holds a Master of Arts in creative writing from UTS and her short stories have been published in the UTS Anthology, The Outback and other publications.

For ten years, she lived with her children in the Byron Bay hinterland where the lush landscape and twists and turns of life inspired her first book, Losing February.

She is currently looking for a publishing home for her second novel, Palya. You can read an extract here.

She continues to reside in the Byron hinterland with a mad duck, feral chooks and two dogs.

The good parts of a book may be only something a writer is lucky enough to overhear or it may be the wreck of his whole damn life—and one is as good as the other.

Ernest Hemingway.

I’m sure I was dreaming of adventures and far-off lands long before my Dad built a 40-foot steel yacht in the backyard.

Yet the years I spent gazing across the dusty rooftops of  a Whyalla suburb fuelled my love of writing.

Today, I feed that creativity by gazing into the night sky from the verandah or walking on the beach.

Or from the window of my study where black cockatoos and kookaburras squawk their own loud words.
