Sue was born in Bloxwich near Walsall in the Black Country. Growing up on the family flower nursery, 'Fishley Nurseries' meant that her earliest childhood memories were smelling the flowers and getting lots of attention from Grandad and Grandma while everyone else was busy working up the field or on the market. Her usual afternoon was spent sitting on a blanket under the apple tree reading books. The photo above was taken on Dad's 80th birthday two years ago.
Early ambitions were to write a pocket novel. That handy sized novel for reading on the bus, or while on holiday or simply in the afternoon with a nice cup of tea. She recently had her fourth one published, Her Own Robinson Crusoe, set in the Caribbean. Now a fifth pocket novel is being penned. Also a more gritty WW1 story set in the midlands, chapter 1 will be available for a sneak peek soon.
Hubby Alan and her Mum, Lily are her number one fans along with special Auntie's. When she's not writing, Susan creates key rings, fridge magnets and tee shirts, and also does some floristry work.
