Susie Day grew up by the seaside in Penarth, Wales, with a lisp and a really unfortunate choice of first name.
Her many careers have included tour guide, nursery nurse, teacher and residential warden in an international boarding school – but she always wanted to be a writer. Her first book, Whump! in which Bill falls 632 miles down a manhole, won the BBC Talent Children’s fiction prize, and was published in 2004. She wrote the Pea’s Book and Secrets series for 8-12s, and contemporary standalone teen/YA fiction.
Susie lives in Coventry, England with her partner and two cats: Pantalaimon and Ludo.
