Sue’s life has taken her from a childhood in New York, to student life in Connecticut and Boston, to adulthood in London where she still lives with her husband. Her two grown sons are now off on their own journeys. Her work reflects her travels with much of it now focused in Cambodia, both as a writer and teacher.

Sue is the founder of Writing Through, a program which uses the creative writing of poetry and short stories to develop English fluency, conceptual thinking and self-esteem. Although it began as a program serving Cambodian students and teachers, it now reaches out to some of the most at-risk populations around the world . Sue has lectured widely on her work in such universities as The University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), Wesleyan University, Canterbury Christ Church University, Wheelock College in Singapore, The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, Yale-NUS, and others.
