Sue Williams is an award-winning journalist and columnist who’s written for all of Australia’s leading newspapers and magazines. She also appears frequently on TV and on radio, and has hosted her own TV segment on SBS TV. Born in England, but having become an Australian 30 years ago, she has worked in print and TV in the UK and New Zealand, too.
Sue spent many years travelling extensively around the world, alone with her backpack. She wrote about some of her most terrifying – and triumphant – journeys in her Getting There: Journeys of an Accidental Adventurer. In 2012 another travel odyssey was released, this time about Australia’s Outback, Welcome To The Outback. It’s a funny, irreverent and often very fond look at Australia’s own backyard, full of incredible landscapes — and amazingly colourful people.
Sue’s first best-selling biography was Peter Ryan: The Inside Story, the tale of Australia’s most controversial, police commissioner, the top British police officer brought over to stamp out corruption in the country’s most rotten force, NSW. Sue lives in Sydney with her partner http://www.jimmythomson.com/ and their two cats, and shouldn’t be mistaken for the Sue Williams in Melbourne who writes entertaining crime novels, and the other Sue Williams who writes excellent books for exceedingly small children.
