We’re excited to welcome renowned crime, noir and thriller writer SJI (Susi) Holliday to Sutton Writers for a conversation about how she built her author career. From building a following on social media, to finding and working with agents and publishers, through to her latest milestone, that of having her work optioned by a production company, Susi will share insights from across her work.
Susi Holliday grew up near Edinburgh and worked in the pharmaceutical industry for many years before she started writing. A life-long fan of crime and horror, her short stories have been published in various places, and she was shortlisted for the inaugural CWA Margery Allingham Prize. She is the author of seven novels, five of them written as SJI Holliday. You can find out more at her website, www.susiholliday.com, on Facebook and on Twitter. She also provides coaching for new crime writers via www.crimefictioncoach.com.
