Susan O'Brien is Chaosium's board games line editor. Sue loves board games - as a player, playtester and designer. Most recently, she has worked with game design legend Reiner Knizia on his two titles for Chaosium - the double Gold ENnie award-winning Khan of Khans, set in Greg Stafford's Glorantha, and the Silver ENnie award-winning Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection, a Call of Cthulhu-themed board game; and there are more card and board game projects with other notable designers in the pipeline.
Susan's professional background is in editing, publishing, and project management. Her career has also included coordinating clinical research trials across the world, working as a jillaroo on a sheep station in the Australian Outback, avoiding being kidnapped in the Philippines, and serving as the ghost writer for various Arabian dignitaries.
After a decade living and working overseas, Susan returned to Melbourne, Australia several years ago, where she lives with her husband (Chaosium's MOB) and their two teenage sons.
