Susie Donkin has been a writer for the hugely popular sketch show Horrible Histories (CBBC) since it first aired in 2009. Having begged the producers to be in it, she makes occasional appearances as some form of hag. Now in its 9th series it has won many awards including BAFTAs for Best Writing Team and Best Comedy Show. Other writing credits include Smack The Pony (Channel 4), and she was a member of female sketch group Bearded Ladies (Radio 4, BBC2). As Artistic Director of Spitz & Co she has created three rural touring comedy theatre shows all of which have toured extensively throughout the UK. She lives in Stroud, mainly in the hope of bumping into Jilly Cooper.
Zeus is a Dick is her first book.
