BIOGRAPHY
Susan Cohen is an Author and Director of a publishing company, based in Edinburgh. She has lived and worked in Hong Kong, Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines, as well as in the UK, in London and Edinburgh.

Susan's first degree was in Law and after working for many years as a litigation lawyer in the UK and the Far East, she decided to change direction and pursue her love of writing. After gaining a second degree in English Literature, she went on to start her writing career and along the way, also trained as a clinical hypnotherapist.

Susan now writes non-fiction humour books which are intended to be motivational and uplifting, aimed at readers who would rarely browse the shelves of the self help section in a bookshop. One of her titles won a prestigious Scottish trade award in January, 2019 and sold out its first print run in 10 days. Her publishing company promotes the work of promising new authors and sponsors events at the Edinburgh Fringe. She is an experienced radio broadcaster and contributor to Scottish television, and as such is accustomed to giving entertaining and informative presentations.

Susan is passionate about sharing how literature and performance shed light on hidden voices and culture and has written articles on how this operates around the world. Having lived in a fair number of locations, geographically speaking, she has a wide range of experience and is qualified to speak on a number of destination topics, with first hand knowledge.

Susan also has a great passion for the teaching of creative writing, and is keen to deliver classes whilst at sea. Her main aim is for people on holiday to socialise, have fun and go away feeling energised, positive and enthused.

CRUISE HISTORY / EXPERIENCE
I have just spent just over a month on CMV's Magellan as a creative writing instructor. On two back to back cruises, I had the sheer joy of teaching groups of up to 30 passengers.
