Before The Books...
I studied French and Spanish in Trinity College, Dublin but realized soon enough that I needed a higher-octane, career and that brought me to broadcasting. I started in the smaller radio stations and worked my way up the ladder, eventually getting to RTE - Ireland’s national radio and television network. I had a terrific show at the weekends, called The Great Giveaway Show, where we gave stuff away for three hours each morning. No surprise; it was very popular. Who doesn’t love free stuff?
Having started broadcasting at seventeen years of age, I was ready to retire by thirty and I wanted to be with my children. Being a stay at home Mom gave me the opportunity to start writing. I wrote four books in Ireland and got to No. 1, in the Irish Times, Best Sellers list. Back then I wrote under my married name Suzanne Higgins. Then, I really had to take a career break because family life was very busy with five children. This is the biggest blessing in my life. My children are my world but ... they’re getting bigger and college is on the horizon so I’ve gone back to my passion - writing.
Moving to America...
We moved in 2009. It was a massive change and the books have taken a decidedly American slant. I’ve always written about where I live so it made sense to write about my new home. I love it here and I’m loving learning the American way of doing things. Now I write under my maiden name Suzy Duffy. I changed names because the books are a little different. You'll have to decide which style you prefer!
I hope you love reading my books as much as I love writing them. Let’s stay in touch through this website, on Facebook or twitter.
Lots of love Suzy xxx
Get my newsletter because it’s how I keep friends in the loop about new books, giveaways, promotions and book tours.
A million thanks if you’ve told your friends about my books or brought one of my stories to your Book Club.
Because I write romantic comedy, they’re great books to read after you’ve done something a bit heavy or depressing. I can join you by phone or Skype on the night you're discussing one of my books. We can share a few laughs and behind the scene secrets. Maybe I can even come visit with enough notice or if you're running a book festival. Just let me know.
Lots of love Suzy
