OH HI! I'M SUSIE.
I’m a Los Angeles based writer and illustrator and former U.S. Foreign Affairs Officer. If you’d like to follow my journey from the State Department into the creative writing world, I most often post about it here and also keep this website fairly up to date.
My most recent TV work includes serving as an Associate Producer for the E! Live from the Red Carpet Shows (2020 Grammys and 2020 Academy Awards) as well as the E! Oscars After Party. My latest cartoon series is called The Dependables and my most recent plays include A Heart Scam and Reality Rejects which were festival winners at the Summer 2018 Short Play Festival — NYC and the February 2019 “SEX!” Festival at the Players Theatre respectively. More information about Reality Rejects can be found via the Players Theatre and press coverage from A Heart Scam is available on Broadway World. I also won Best Director of the “SEX!” Festival for my work on Reality Rejects (February 2019).
In February 2019, my short comedic play, Valid Ways to Quit Your Job, made its public radio debut via the National New Play Network, New Play Exchange. The debut stage production of Valid Ways to Quit Your Job happened at the White Bear Theatre in London via the sold out Cuckoo Bang Bits Festival (April 2019). Reality Rejects appeared in Inkwell Theatre's Inaugural Virtual Playwrights Night in Los Angeles (March 2020).
Through my writing, I talk about my past working in foreign diplomacy and my present day LA life. You may have seen me in venues such as the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York, Tao Comedy Club in Los Angeles, and The SLICK Comedy Show at Mad Tropical in Brooklyn amongst other stickier, darker, less virtuous venues.
If you’d like to reach out and say hello or to request a producer’s reel or script read, I’d love to hear from you. I'm smboggess [at] gmail [dot] com.
Thanks for stopping by and happy browsing. :)
