Dr Susan Moore has been an inveterate reader all her life. Her PhD on Henry James (University of Sydney 1972) was revised and eventually published as a book in the University of Queensland Press Scholars’ Library. For the greater part of her adult life she has taught the 15-25 age group, written books, and published articles on Adult and Children’s Literature, Education, religious thought, and the history of ideas. Raised in Elizabeth, New Jersey, she has lived in Sydney for 40 years, following her marriage to a West Australian theoretical physicist whom she met at Harvard. She has two adult children and, so far, three grandsons.
