Susan Battye began writing plays for the students she taught at Greymouth High School because she could find nothing to direct that came close to fitting the curriculum requirements. Some of these plays have formed the basis for her books, as with her first book for Scholastic, written in conjunction with fellow teacher Thelma Eakin: My Story: The Mine's Afire! about the Brunner Mine disaster.
