Meet the Author

British-born Sue Williams is based in Sydney and writes for newspapers and magazines in Australia and the UK, as well as having written a number of books, on a wide range of topics.

A recent book was "No Time For Fear: How a shark attack survivor beat the odds" about the astonishing Paul de Gelder, the navy diver who was attacked by a bull shark while on a training exercise in Sydney’s Harbour. Despite losing a hand and a leg, Paul oversaw his own recovery to reclaim his life and his spirit and was back in the water within months. He talks frankly about both his wild youth and the inspirational drive that’s pushed him to succeed. From Penguin Books.

Outback Spirit: Inspiring True Stories of Australia’s Unsung Heroes was Sue’s previous book, which came out at the end of 2010. It’s a look at a group of amazingly gutsy people who are passionate about helping the outback and those living there. Their efforts make for thrilling, uplifting and touching reading. With a foreword by Australian Governor-General Quentin Bryce, it’s published by Penguin and is available at all good bookshops.

Outback Spirit was the follow up to the highly successful 'Women of the Outback', telling the astonishing life stories of 14 remarkable women, from high-achievers to everyday heroes all living out back of beyond, and battling drought, flood, harrowing isolation and often horrific accidents to survive and thrive.

Sue's other books include And Then The Darkness: The Disappearance of Peter Falconio and the Trials of Joanne Lees, which was shortlisted for the world’s top crime-writing award, the prestigious international Gold Dagger, and for the highest Australian award for crime writing, the Ned Kelly Award; Peter Ryan: The Inside Story; Mean Streets, Kind Heart: The Father Chris Riley Story; and the travel book, Getting There – Journeys of an Accidental Adventurer.

Sue is now listed in the ‘Who’s Who of Australian Women’, a celebration of influential women in Australia.
