Susan Lodge writes historical romance set against the backdrop of Nelson’s navy and injects a fair dose of humour into her stories.
If someone asked Susan for her wish list it would start with a Star Trek holodeck.
A great admirer of the works of Patrick O’Brian and Georgette Heyer, her destinations would start with a voyage on Jack Aubrey’s frigate (preferably avoiding times of conflict). Next would be dinner with some of Heyer’s memorable characters; Hugo Darracott and The Marquis of Alvertsoke, would be among them.
Susan has a science degree and always wanted to be an astronaut but settled for a career in the Civil Service. She loves old sailing ships, chocolate, spell checks and tinkering on her piano.

This usually gives the freedom for a little fun and diversion for my characters to misbehave or do something unexpected. It doesn't matter if I use it or not in the final draft, as long as it gets me writing again. (less)

You can escape. Although ,I still think fact is stranger then fiction a lot of the time.
But there is something rather indulgent about building and nurturing characters. I love it when my characters make me laugh out loud - or want to weep. As though they take control over your fingers on the keyboard for a while.(less)

Delicious !
Despite the bittersweet story line of this riveting romance - it had a wonderful feel good feeling. Something to do with the delicious world of gelato that you are virtually hauled through as you happily consume the chapters.

Really solid story. Well written with an authentic feel for life at sea on-board a navy frigate. Marston is an unyielding hero yet one of integrity and understanding. Jane is a woman who was taught by an over i..." Read more of this review »
Rebellious Cargo by Susan Lodge
"A thoroughly enjoyable read. Following the escapades of Jane Charlesworth was an easy task as the independent woman of the early 1800s proves to be a resourceful woman. I liked that her companion/friend, Celine, is probably even more courageous as..." Read more of this review »

“Hetty shivered. Goodness, he had no business looking at her like that. Physician my eye! Physicians definitely didn't look like him; they were short, round and adorned with wigs and spectacles.”
Susan Lodge, Only a Hero Will Do

“Are you some sort of pervert?”
The grey eyes turn from terrified to indignant. “Do you mind keeping your voice down, I have a perfectly innocent explanation.” He unravels himself and straightens up, towering over us like some freshly escaped genie.”
Susan Lodge, The Man in the Blue Flowered Shorts

“I cannot believe I have been duped, not once but twice. My three years gaining a degree in psychology was clearly a waste of time. I might as well have studied Klingon.”
Susan Lodge, The Man in the Buff Breeches
