Sue Moorcroft is a Sunday Times bestselling author and has held the coveted #1 spot in the Amazon Kindle chart. She's won the Goldsboro Books Contemporary Romantic Novel Award, the Readers Best Romantic Read Award and the Katie Fforde Bursary. She writes contemporary fiction of life and love.

She also writes short stories, serials, articles, columns, courses and writing 'how to'.

An army child, Sue was born in Germany then lived in Cyprus, Malta and the UK. She's worked in a bank, as a bookkeeper (probably a mistake), as a copytaker for Motor Cycle News and for a typesetter, but is pleased to have wriggled out of all 'proper jobs'.

Reading is one of my greatest pleasures and I'd be heartbroken if writing prevented me from reading. Reading is living in the fictional world and so is writing, so they're compatible, in my view. Sometimes I'm in my own world and sometimes I'm in somebody else's. It is annoying if I have what I think is a fresh idea and then read it somewhere else before I can use it, though! :-)(less)

Probably the fact that I work on different things - novels, serials, short stories, articles and courses - is helpful. Whenever something turns to treacle I just work on something else.(less)

Standing at the career crossroads

Earlier this year my writing buddy Mark West, who writes chillers and thrillers, invited me onto his blog, Strange Tales, to talk about a crossroads I once hit in my writing career and what I did about it. It got so much attention that I then wrote a ‘what happened next’ part two.





With Mark’s permission, I’m reproducing the posts here, making them into one and updating where necessary.

Joy Lilley I love to read Sue,eyes are not all they used to be,so I look for audio. Not that many books professionally voiced over. I have a kindle and find the larger print ability a great help.
Love your books and about to read "One summer in Italy."
Congratulations on your splendid achievements.

Best wishes Joy Gerken pen name Joy M. Lilley
