Short third person bio

Since 2010, Susan has written for a variety of media outlets, but the call of the strange and unusual grew irresistible. Now she mixes words like potions at her laptop in Cheshire, England. She procrastinates by writing shorter, and weirder, stuff. Her first novel, eco-horror Earthly Bodies, is out now.

Longer + more personal bio

First of all thanks for visiting, without you, I wouldn’t be here.

I’m an author and creator. When I’m not updating these pages, you’ll find me writing or editing stories for publications both on and offline.

From an outsiders point of view, I’ve had many pivots in my life; teacher, MUA, interiors blogger and now fiction author. To me, it just feels like an evolution, my own personal evolution. I have grown into the person I was always going to be and the path of my life has brought me here.

I am 41 and live with my husband, two daughters and Bill the cat in Macclesfield, Cheshire.

If you prefer podcasts, you can learn about me here (2019) or here (2021)

Find out about what education and courses I have completed for my professional development here.

My favourite social media channel is Instagram so you can always find me on there– come and say hi!

  2. Susie,

    I love the Cavallini italian postcard wrap, do you know if there is a way to get one of his wraps done in wall covering? I would like to use this behind some shelving in an office. I also found a designer named Nicoletta Pagano in Italy who has some beautiful designs but only in wrap as well.

    Also trying to find a wallpaper I saw in Bella Italia in on Hanover St. in Edinburgh but have not been able to find too many UK design sites — it was a vintage Italian retro wallpaper, any ideas of where to look? Have contacted the business to find out who designed their restaurants to see if I can track it down.
