Suzanne LUTAS is a retired English teacher. She grew up and studied in the South of France where she graduated and majored in English literature and Linguistics. She wrote a thesis about Samuel BECKETT & the Theater of the Absurd for her Master’s degree. After she qualified as a schoolteacher, she first taught English in Tahiti to both College and Vocational Training Certificate students. Then, to secondary school trainee teachers.
She also taught Art to secondary school pupils.
Yet, as a self-confessed Cinema addict, Suzanne started a rehab in 2013 attending several Online Screenwriters University courses, webinars, and even a Master Class. Which resulted in writing two multi-awarded screenplays. When she does not write, she paints, handcrafts costume jewelry and sings in her own jazz band.
Unique traits: Today, as a happy young retiree, I can indulge in my leisure time, which is mostly devoted to all the activities put aside during my professional career: painting, costume jewelry handcrafting, music (Guitar + Vocal Lead in a Jazz band named Oh Happy Fiù), and more recently screenwriting.
