Sue Lawson


Having grown up on a farm in Western Victoria, Sue Lawson spent most of her days reading, writing, listening to her father and grandfather’s stories, and most importantly, avoiding working with the cattle. Now, when not writing, Sue works part-time for Geelong’s The Book Bird and often runs author talks and workshops for young people and adults.

Sue’s critically acclaimed historical novel, Freedom Ride, has been described as a “brilliant evocation of racism in Australia of the 1960s…” and “…an important and entertaining slice of Australian history.” Presently, Sue is working with Boon Wurrung Elder, Fay Muir, on a number of non-fiction projects.
