Sue Whiting

Sue Whiting has worked in publishing for two decades. As a storyteller and schools performer, Sue has informed, inspired and entertained thousands of kids across the country. She is also a former primary school teacher, a freelance editor and writing coach, and, of course, an author who has written numerous books for children and young adults, including the bestselling Missing and the CBCA 2019 Notable Book, Beware the Deep Dark Forest. In this her twentieth anniversary year of being an author, Sue has two new books to celebrate: The Book of Chance, a mystery/suspense novel for readers 10+ that explores finding truth in today’s fake world; and Good Question, a fun-filled romp through a fairytale land that just may shed some new light on the age-old mystery of why Henny Penny thought the sky was falling!

“Versatile across all stages Sue captures and holds her audience’s attention from the get-go. As a former teacher, Sue knows how to pitch, pace and present to perfection. Staff and students were equally enthralled and impressed. Five stars from us at Yarrawarrah School. Nailed it!”

– Fay Prideaux, Teacher Librarian

“Sue’s fabulous story telling immediately captures the attention of students, both young and older. Our younger students can’t wait for our very own copy of Sue’s latest tale and our older students have continued to test their geographical knowledge after taking the Panama challenge.
A day with Sue is truly a great one and our students want to know when she’ll be back.”

– Melinda Robinson, Coordinator of Junior Primary & Library Learning, St Peter’s Anglican School
