I am a Perth-based writer, journalist-turned-public relations-professional, food-lover and traveller.
Words have been my passion and profession since I was a teenager and I am an avid amateur photographer.
Welcome to my place in cyberspace. This website has recently, like my career, undergone a major overhaul.
Some of the pages have disappeared with the installation of a new theme and are in the process of being restored or updated. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime you can reach me on email at via admin at sueyeap.com.
Until April, 2019 I was a writer, editor and journalist at The West Australian Newspaper.
For most of my career I specialised in entertainment feature writing and criticism, interviewing actors, writers, musicians and producers about TV, movies and music.
For 20 months I was editor of The West’s food section Fresh, now called Food, and managed the associated Instagram account.
This personal site has links to some of the work I have done for The West and other publications but is mainly devoted to my random musings about my personal passions of food and travel.
Before returning to The West in May 2010, I spent several years freelancing. One of my regular gigs was tracking the latest TV news, gossip, ratings and plots for Perth news talk radio station 6PR.
I still occasionally pop up as a guest on 6PR, reviewing movies or talking about random topics, such as a punter being evicted from FringeWorld.
For several years I could also be heard talking entertainment and food on the Spirit Network. I love the immediacy of radio!
Those in the market for a home on Perth’s northern beaches may have seen my work in The West’s Real Estate section; and if music is more your thing, I also wrote for Perth’s monthly lifestyle magazine, Silver, which later became Sheila.
My first stint on “the other side” in PR was writing press releases and pitching stories as a part-time media consultant for the Perth Royal Show in 2008 and 2009.
If you have found you way to this site via Google, I should point out I am not the Sue Yeap who has something to do with dog agility trials in Malaysia.
I’m the one who has interviewed everyone from The Wiggles and Baby Spice to NCIS star Michael Weatherly and shock rocker Marilyn Manson.
