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.

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!
