About this author

Sue Rule is a British author from Kent. She also offers sympathetic critique and editorial services to fellow-authors - see http://www.sarule.co.uk for details.

As well as being a writer, Sue is a songwriter and musician with folk group Pig’s Ear. http://www.pigs-sty.com and on the organising committee of the annual Pig's Ear Kentish Horse Folk Ale festival.

Sue has been writing bits of the fictional history of Shehaios since she first dreamed up the world and its rather prosaic magic in the early 1970’s. The intervening years spent learning and perfecting her craft have culminated in the “Shaihen Heritage” series. The series grows out of Sue’s love of history and folklore, and tracks the fictional history of an imagined world which is not u

I’m not writing fiction at the moment. I am suffering an overdose of reality. So here’s my two-pennyworth on changing banking culture, and why persisting in paying bankers excessively high salaries is fatally damaging to the world’s economy.

It is the work of ordinary folk that drives the economy. Not the gambling games of highly-paid men in sharp suits. It is our money - the output of manufact... Read more of this blog post »

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Learning is not compulsory... neither is survival.”
W. Edwards Deming

“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
Arthur C. Clarke, Profiles of the Future: An Inquiry Into the Limits of the Possible

“A lot of the people who read a bestselling novel, for example, do not read much other fiction. By contrast, the audience for an obscure novel is largely composed of people who read a lot. That means the least popular books are judged by people who have the highest standards, while the most popular are judged by people who literally do not know any better. An American who read just one book this year was disproportionately likely to have read ‘The Lost Symbol’, by Dan Brown. He almost certainly liked it.”
The Economist

“There is very little in this World somebody can't make a little worse and a little cheaper.”
David P. Elliot

“Martin Carthy on English folk music: "I'm not interested in heritage - this stuff is alive.”
Martin Carthy
