Sue lives in London with her husband and two daughters. She has been a stay-at-home mum ever since having children, but before that worked in TV as a Production Manager and got a degree in Media Studies at the University of East London. She grew up in Clacton on the coast of Essex and spent much of her childhood in or beside the sea, playing with her three cats, or being tormented by her two older brothers.
Sue has always enjoyed writing and when she was young, she wrote lots of poems and won a few poetry competitions. As an adult (before turning her hand to picture books), Sue has completed a creative writing evening course, kept two blogs and written articles for a couple of review websites.
