Suzy J. Brown is a pseudonym, based on ‘Suzy’ being the name and spelling she used as a teenager when she was at her most confident, J. being her middle initial and Brown being a family name somewhere along the tree. Put it all together, and it fits as a novelist’s name.
Suzy J Brown lives in Melbourne Australia and still lives in the street where she was born (and where her sons were born), which frustrates her to no end, but somehow, she keeps returning. She graduated from La Trobe University with a Bachelor of Arts (Media Studies) in 1994 and went on to work for the Age Newspaper in their classified advertising department, specializing in real estate. She managed the advertising department of two leading Melbourne real estate agents before going out on her own as a freelance real estate copywriter in 1998. In 2009/2010, she completed 2 years of her Masters in Writing at Swinburne University before pursuing writing her novel ‘On the Road to the Best Orgasm Ever.’ In late 2016, she will also have the sequel available ‘Calmer Suits Her.’
Her real estate writing has allowed her to step into thousands of homes and have people reveal their secrets, giving her inspiration for her novel writing.
A proud single mother, Brown loves travelling the world with her two sons. Since 2008 when she applied for her first passport, she has travelled to the UK/Europe, the United States, Fiji, New Zealand and many road trips across the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and throughout Australia, where she lives, and always itching to do more.
Brown has attended writing workshops in Santa Fe New Mexico, meeting and working with Ellen Kleiner – owner of Blessingway Author’s Services, Berkeley in Oakland California with James N Frey and Barbara McHugh and has been mentored by Stephanie Hale from Oxford Literary Consultancy in Oxford UK. She also had her book ‘On the Road to the Best Orgasm Ever’ appear at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2015 and London Book Fair and Book Expo New York in 2016.
Brown flirts with the idea of being an inspiration to women, especially feisty single mums yearning to branch out from the stigma and create a new successful life.
