Welcome To My Website! What a great year! 
My controversial book The Judas Tree was published in May, the day before the Royal Wedding and I was in London to celebrate.
 It was a challenging book to write and once finished, I sent the manuscript to my publisher, with some degree of trepidation. This was no ordinary story, it was a dark psychological thriller. I received an email back from the publishing director of Endeavour Media, it read: 'I have only just got round to reading The Judas Tree,I started this afternoon and I cannot stop - just finished Part One! Please, please tell me it's still available? We would love to publish it!' I was thrilled. She later expressed that she thought the book was terribly outrageous and she loved that it was. The story is about betrayal which is depicted by a solitary Judas Tree. It is weaved around two Nursery Rhymes, Mary Tudor and the residents of a village set in rural England. It was written as a shocking demonstration of what pushes a person beyond the bounds of reason. I explore the degree of pain and damage a woman can endure, before someone or something becomes her ‘tipping point’ and she retaliates with an extreme act of revenge. Perhaps I should issue a warning!
I’ve had feedback from several women readers who couldn’t read the book at bedtime, because it was too frightening. They did however enjoy the book during the day. Some readers told me that they were frightened of Jonas, a mean and dangerous character in the story. I can reassure them that he is not a threat and will remain firmly between the pages of the book, which they can close at any time. The reviews have been overwhelmingly good, some are in my 'Reviews' section. If you enjoy a thriller with twists that will take you outside your comfort zone, please read The Judas Tree and let me know your thoughts. Wishing you all a Happy 2019. Susan

Dear Friends,

I invite you to join our conversation. Let me know your thoughts about my books and the characters I’ve created. Let’s discuss reading, writing and life. . .  I’ll begin right now, with my thoughts on writing.

THOUGHTS ON WRITING  . . .

If you are a budding writer, read on! You will need to nourish your imagination, feed your mind with facts and train yourself to recognize detail. That’s just the foundation. Next, learn to read, taking in all meaning and vocabulary in all genres. Learn to write grammatically in your chosen language to the level of excellence. Devour the dictionary, using a wide variety of expressive words. Lastly, practice. Spend time writing, learn your craft and always seek perfection.

Good writing is a skill, driven by passion. Inspiration will stun your mind with reams of dazzling prose. It will strike at any hour of the day or night insistent in its quest to be recorded, so always carry a note book.

For years my unpublished manuscripts languished on dusty bookshelves while I earned a living. Now, my living is writing. They say that successful writers, are the ones who never gave up.

Best wishes,

Susan.
