Suzanne van Lohuizen studied at the Conservatory of Dramatic Art in Arnhem. In 1977 she completed her training as a teacher of Dutch and shortly afterwards began a career as an actress with a political theatre group called Proloog. She also began writing and directing plays for adults and children. In 1992 she was awarded the Dutch/Flemish Dramatic prize for 2 children’s plays: Have you seen my little boy? and The house of my life. She says of her work: “The struggle which sets the child against the world which surrounds him, is a hard one. I don’t write for children from a sense of mission, but because I still feel very close to them emotionally.”
