Suki was born in Bangkok and spent much of her childhood travelling, sparking a lifelong interest in different cultures. She attended University of Colorado, Boulder while studying anthropology and comparative religions.  

Primarily a genre writer, Suki incorporates her eclectic interests with a passion for science and adventure and her screenplays often uniquely combine clashing cultures, high-stakes action, environmental and feminist themes and grounded, mystical elements.

In 2012 Suki and her husband captained their 44 ft. sailboat  on a circumnavigation of the Pacific Ocean with their two young children. Suki wrote a popular sailing blog http://thewetedgeadventure.blogspot.com about their adventures exploring disappearing coral atolls and raising awareness for the Oceans.
