In 2019, before the emergence of Covid-19, Susan wrote the prescient political thriller A Killer’s Heart. A deadly disease sweeps through the country, as Adam Hardy recovers from a heart transplant. But strange visions haunt him. His donor wasn’t killed in an accident – he was murdered. Adam’s memories could solve who is unleashing the virus – but can he untangle the truth in time?

She created the pioneering BBC detective drama South of the Border, and has over 130 broadcast credits to her name including Casualty and Holby City, Heartbeat, Coronation Street and Eastenders, Footballer’s Wives, Dangerfield and Down to Earth.
