Journalist, broadcaster and social critic Dr. Susan Maushart is the author of five books, including the feminist classics The Mask of Motherhood and Wifework and the internationally acclaimed memoir The Winter of Our Disconnect. A prolific independent audio producer, Susan's popular features, documentaries and podcast series for ABC Radio explore topics ranging from sex and dating, to the benefits of boredom, to true crime. She is still trying to figure out if that makes her a Renaissance Woman or a hopeless dilettante. (Thoughts?) Susan's work has been published in many languages, so that's something to cling to. Her lifestyle column in the Weekend Australian Magazine ran weekly for a legendary 12 years, and she has lectured in media at NYU, Fordham and Curtin University of Technology. She has appeared as a commentator on The Today Show, Lateline, CNN, Fox & Friends, Today/Tonight, the BBC, NPR and in publications ranging from Family Circle and Parents to the Huffington Post and The Guardian. The mother of three global nomads, Susan lives between Perth, Western Australia and the East End of Long Island. And her frequent flyer points are amazing.
