About this author

I'm a YA author with a penchant for the dark and strange. I primarily write speculative fiction but enjoy literary writing as well. I occasionally delve into adult genres too.

I'm a musician and have a Master's degree in music, but I prefer writing strange stories, baking peanut butter cupcakes and playing with my shiba inu.

I'm repped by Jordy Albert of the Booker Albert Agency.

Publicity manager for Anaiah Press.

Upcoming titles:

I HEART ROBOT from Month9Books, January 2015

Yes, there are days when I stay in my pyjamas all day and don't leave the house at all. Those are usually my best writing days.(less)
Suzanne van Rooyen I'm currently working on a New Adult novel featuring a male bisexual protagonist. It's a retelling of sorts, but that's all I'm saying ;)

“As if the fact that I love brussels sprouts isn't evidence enough of my being an alien, there's also the fact that no circuit board in the physics classroom works in my presence.”
Suzanne van Rooyen, The Other Me

“My limbs feel heavy, like my whole system is slowing down. Maybe even time itself is shutting down. This is how the world will end, not with bombs and earthquakes – just a ritardando toward death.”
Suzanne van Rooyen, The Other Me

“They're still arguing in the kitchen. Mom's way of coping is to bake, which she does with the force of an F5 tornado, slamming cups into counters and beating the eggs senseless. At least there'll be chocolate cake later.”
Suzanne van Rooyen, The Other Me

Making Connections: 30. DRAGON'S TEETH by Suzanne Van Rooyen 10 65 Apr 03, 2012 12:38PM  
YA LGBT Books: Boys on the Brink Blog 61 128 Aug 25, 2013 11:56AM  
“I cannot express it; but surely you and everybody have a notion that there is or should be an existence of yours beyond you. What were the use of my creation, if I were entirely contained here? My great miseries in this world have been Heathcliff's miseries, and I watched and felt each from the beginning: my great thought in living is himself. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger: I should not seem a part of it. My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

“Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 6: Fables and Reflections

“I suspect there will never be a requiem for a dream, simply because it will destroy us before we have the opportunity to mourn it's passing.”
Hubert Selby Jr., Requiem for a Dream

“The night is the hardest time to be alive and 4am knows all my secrets.”
Poppy Z. Brite
