October 2014


My first attempt at serious writing was a play titled, Twinkle’s Magic Ring, which I wrote when I was ten. Such was the success of the play that parents as well as pupils and teachers attended the production.
After leaving school, I relocated from the Wirral to Cheltenham, became a fashion buyer, married and later moved to live in the tropical paradise of Mauritius. Then followed ten years in Hong Kong, where I raised a family.
With a desire to have my own business, I first opened a beauty salon and then realised a dream – to launch my own skin care company. Due to hard work and lots of grace, the range, Susan Molyneux, became a success. After selling the business, I had the opportunity to start writing.

Cheltenham Literature Festival

In October 2014 I was privileged to read my award winning short story at the Cheltenham Literature Festival. The theme was Brave New World and five stories and five poems were selected to be presented to an audience. It was an enjoyable experience and one which I hope to repeat. Was I nervous? Of course, but the organisers and other writers were so friendly that I was soon feeling at ease.

Blindsided by Jay Giles

When I looked at the cover of this book, I presumed that it would be a light hearted comedy. It is not - but rather a crime story with some violence. I'm glad I read it, although it is not the genre that I usually enjoy.

This is an amusing story about a quirky, if unbelievable character. You'll either love it or hate it. I liked it!

Instructions for a Heatwave by Maggie O'Farrell
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book was suggested by my book club and we all found it a good read. It's a gripping family saga set in the extraordinary heatwave of 1976. The stifling atmosphere is not just because of the weather. A good read by a talented author.

I enjoyed this memoir and loved the author's descriptions of various cultures. Although her father's ideas that an education would be wasted on a girl, Norah was not to be beaten down. Her time in Hong Kong and China are particularly interesting. A g ...more

This must be one of my favourite books and one which I'm sure that I'll read again. It makes me want to live in Cornwall and stare out to sea like Poldark! One of those rare books that stay with you long after you've finished reading it.

A heart warming saga, which I enjoyed. The title describes the protagonist well, who rises to the top in spite of her humble beginnings. Lovely story.

I guess I'm too old and or boring to enjoy this sort of book. Full of childish games that seem to be totally improbable. Sorry, but not for me.
