Susanne Hiller, who was born in St. John’s Newfoundland, has been working as a reporter at the National Post since its launch in 1998. She covers everything from hard news to fashion and is known for going behind the scenes for a story. In fact, she often becomes the story. She once learned how to strut on the catwalk during Toronto Fashion Week. More recently, she test-drove a Formula One racing car in France. A Newfoundlander at heart, she likes getting home as much as possible and regularly files reports from St. John’s when she can.

Susanne has also developed a following with her regular Modern Wife column, which explores the predicaments of a modern marriage. Women these days are waiting longer to settle down. It's little weird then, when Mr. Right does come along, to suddenly adopt a vocabulary of "we" and "us" instead of "I" and "me. Susanne, who was married last year, discusses the often shaky transition. Check out her column online at www.nationalpost.com/modernwife. You can also look for Susanne’s articles daily in the National Post or search “Susanne Hiller” in the 14 day search area of www.nationalpost.com for recent stories.

Previously, Susanne worked as a crime reporter with the Daily News in Halifax where she once trained with the SWAT team for a story. She won an Atlantic Journalism Award in 1997 for the top news story in the region. She also co-wrote a screenplay called The Daily Blade which aired on CTV in 1999. The Daily Blade, which starred SCTV alumni Joe Flaherty and This Hour has 22 Minute’s Cathy Jones, is about the adventures of a reporter working at a small newspaper. She swears it is fiction!

Susanne has written for various publications over the years, including Maclean's, Saturday Night, Time Canada and Toronto Life.

Susanne also contributes her Newfoundland based stories to www.newfoundlandersabroad.com for everyone away from home to enjoy. Many thanks Hiller!
