Author’s Biography

‘A Storyteller of the Human Condition….’

Going home………to Ireland 1998

Author, playwright, and poet, Trisha Sugarek has been writing for four decades. In the early days, her writing focused on scripts for the stage.  She has since expanded her body of work to include fiction, books of poetry, a mystery series, and a group of children’s books.

As an actor and director she enjoyed a thirty year career in theatre. (gallery)   Writing full time now, she remarks, “I’ll step back onto a stage to direct something that is on my bucket list but I’d rather write and let someone else do the directing…”

Originally from Seattle, she has worked in theatres from coast to coast. Her plays have been produced across the country and internationally. Trisha makes her home in the beautiful city of Savannah, Georgia with Miss Molly, a Ridgeback Hound and Gracie, a Havanese and their cats, Fiona and Barcode.

She has written a series of murder mysteries, ‘The World of Murder.   Art of Murder, Dance of Murder, Act of Murder, Taste of Murder, Angel of Murder, Beneath the Bridge of Murder, and Video of Murder are available on amazon.com. Available in paperback, e-Books and audio-books.

For the creative writer in all of us, Trish created four Journals/Handbooks. 1.Creative.Write.BookCoverImage Each one has a ‘how to’ section (6 in all) and the 275 blank pages have inspiring quotes from famous writers, playwrights, actors and poets.

General fiction by Sugarek is mostly historic:  Song of the Yukon and Wild Violets were inspired by the amazing women in her family and their adventures. 
  Women Outside the Walls was inspired by the women the author met while visiting a men’s prison.
