Suzie Wilde

Suzie Wilde was born in Portsmouth. The daughter of boat maker David Shackleton, she was raised on Norse mythology and the belief that their family is related to polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. She has had a lifelong love of the sea and lived aboard a boat for five years.

After she left a career teaching English, Suzie graduated with Distinction from an MA in Creative Writing at the University of Sussex, and in 2014 she was selected as one of six playwrights to take part in a series of workshops at the Criterion Theatre in London with professional actors.
