Susan Chamberlain attended Queens College in New York, and has been a contributor to BIRD TALK magazine since its inception under Fancy Publications (now I-5 Publishing, LLC) in 1984.  She writes a monthly column for BIRD TALK magazine, as well as feature articles for BIRD TALK and Pet Product News. Her articles and photos have appeared on, in Birds USA, Ferrets Magazine, Hobby Farm and Rabbits USA, all published by I-5 Publishing, LLC. Topics have included business articles, travel features, photo essays, species profiles and celebrity interviews, as well as practical pet care pieces.

Chamberlain was a columnist for the now defunct, a full-service, online pet supply and information center. In addition to writing feature articles for the site, she also wrote product highlights and descriptions for the on-line pet-supply purveyor. She has contributed bird-related articles to Hablemos de Loros, published in Spain by Europarrot and The Waldo Tribune, a Southampton and NYC newspaper geared toward children. She authored a weekly, year-long feature on a pair of disabled parrots for This Week, a subsidiary of Newsday, which is owned by the Tribune Corporation. She formerly hosted Wings ‘n Things on Pet Life Radio.

Chamberlain is past president and an executive board member of the Long Island Parrot Society of N.Y., Inc.. She produces and hosts The Bird Club, the Parrot Society’s television talk show all about pet birds. Other Club activities include media relations, special event planning, fundraising, participating in Parrot University and contributing to LIPService, the Society’s award-winning newsletter.

Chamberlain occasionally speaks in front of groups — e.g., Pet Expo, Nassau Coliseum; bird clubs, the Canadian Parrot Conference and the AAV Conference in Providence, RI — on topics of interest to bird owners.  Appearances on The Family Pet (News 12 Long Island) to discuss bird care have elicited numerous inquiries and positive responses from viewers. Other guest spots have included appearances on FOX News Channel’s Pet News; News 12 Long Island's Morning Show; FOX News and on Alicyn Leigh’s Pet Talk radio broadcast.

Chamberlain owns and operates The 14 Karat Parrot, a mail-order business specializing in gifts and accessories for exotic bird lovers. She also writes press releases for organizations and small businesses, creates publicity and biographical pieces for actors and artists. A former Florida resident, she now resides on Long Island, NY, with nine pet birds ranging in age from 39 to 14: a blue-and-gold macaw, two African greys, four Amazon parrots and two Senegal parrots. All but one are adopted.
