Susan Edwards

Susan Edwards was born and bred in Toronto, Canada. Some years back, having spent many years as a tv producer in her native country, she came to live in Ireland and settled in Gleann Eidhneach in North Clare. It was there that she began her writing.

Susan has a particular interest in writing for the younger reader.
An Phleist Mhór was first conceived of by Susan and its publication is the result of a collaborative project between herself, her acclaimed co-writer Ré Ó Laighléis, and the gifted illustrator Emily Colenso. An Phleist Mhór was winner of the Oireachtas ‘2008 Book of the Year for Younger Readers’ and also received the ‘2008 Réics Carló Literary Award’. It was also shortlisted for the 2009 Bisto Book of the Year Award.
