About the Author
Susan Deller grew up in South East Queensland, Australia and became interested in writing at school but never thought of taking it any further, and in 1988, she became an on-call printers’ table hand – so Susan made books instead of writing them! Although, did she write the Quality Control and Training manuals for one of her employers in 1991.
Susan was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1992 (while obtaining her Assoc Diploma of Business Management) and she found that writing calmed her symptoms. It was during one of her bad days in 2009, that she wrote her first short story, using the song titles as the core of the story, and as people heard Susan’s “Ode to AC/DC”, they requested their own stories, using the song titles of their favourite artist.
In 2010, Susan finally found her soul mate, Dean Carr, and they were married in 2013. Dean encouraged Susan to do something with 20 or so, stories she had already written and had gotten made up with their individual design, so they started selling her short stories as framed A3 prints at the local markets, which lead to getting more requests for more stories – but people seemed more interested in buying Susan’s display book rather than one story design.
Then in 2016, she got the call that would change everything – someone wanted to publish her stories as a book and the rest is history. Because Susan’s brother-in-law requested a story using the movie titles of the James Bond Series, this has lead to Susan being asked to write her 2nd book, “Odes to the Movies” and she hopes there are many more books to come.
