Sue was born in Northampton where she still lives. For many years she worked for Northamptonshire libraries and remains a passionate supporter of Public Libraries. Sue loves everything about books, the feel of them, their smell. the way they look. And has a habit of matching a bookmark to the cover of each book she's reading. The process of reading, the feel of the book, carrying it around in her shoulder bag, sitting in favourite cafes reading all make for a complete sensory experience.
Browsing bookshops old and new, talking all things bookish with other book lovers, spending time with other writers and meeting with fans of her own books at author events are her favourite things. That and eating good quality dark chocolate, while writing.

Each book in every animal group is a stand alone story and there's a short piece at the beginning of each book that sets the scene for whichever animal group you're reading from. So collect away! Hope you enjoy them all.

Autumn Thoughts

Hi Bookish folk of Goodreads!

It's been a while since I last updated my blog. The end of Summer rushed past on a tide of family drama and illness, so everything was on hold until the tsunami retreated. Happily all is back on track and I'm making up for lost time. I'm delighted to have a short horror story, entitled 'Old Gods' included in The Third Corona Book of Horror Stories edited by Lewis Willi Read more of this blog post »

Sue Bentley and 2 other people liked Andy's review of We Other:
We Other by Sue Bentley
"I loved this. Gritty and wondrous by turns, it is balanced and well told, well paced and deft. A young adult fantasy, but it's been 35 years since I fitted that category and I thought it was great."

Hi Cynthia - thanks for your question and sorry for the delay in replying. I think you mean does Flame the Magic Kitten ever win back his throne from his wicked uncle? Yes he does - but in all the books he has a new adventure with the person he meets See Full Answer
Sue Bentley and 4 other people liked Beverley Lee's review of Ghost Wall:
Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss
"4.5 stars.

This was my first foray into the writings of Sarah Moss, and was highly recommended by a very good friend.

It's a short book, coming in at just over 150 pages, but it manages to cram a whole lot of story into those pages.

“When the Dark comes rising six shall turn it back;
Three from the circle, three from the track;
Wood, bronze, iron; Water, fire, stone;
Five will return and one go alone.

Iron for the birthday; bronze carried long;
Wood from the burning; stone out of song;
Fire in the candle ring; water from the thaw;
Six signs the circle and the grail gone before.

Fire on the mountain shall find the harp of gold
Played to wake the sleepers, oldest of old.
Power from the Green Witch, lost beneath the sea.
All shall find the Light at last, silver on the tree.”
Susan Cooper, The Dark Is Rising Sequence

“On the day of the dead, when the year too dies,
Must the youngest open the oldest hills
Through the door of the birds, where the breeze breaks.
There fire shall fly from the raven boy,
And the silver eyes that see the wind,
And the light shall have the harp of gold.

By the pleasant lake the Sleepers lie,
On Cadfan’s Way where the kestrels call;
Though grim from the Grey King shadows fall,
Yet singing the golden harp shall guide
To break their sleep and bid them ride.

When light from the lost land shall return,
Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,
And where the midsummer tree grows tall
By Pendragon’s sword the Dark shall fall.

Y maent yr mynyddoedd yn canu,
ac y mae’r arglwyddes yn dod.”
Susan Cooper, The Dark Is Rising Sequence

“The future cannot blame the present, just as the present cannot blame the past. The hope is always here, always alive, but only your fierce caring can fan it into a fire to warm the world.”
Susan Cooper, Silver on the Tree
