SUSAN ELLIOT WRIGHT
Susan Elliot Wright grew up in Lewisham in south-east London, left school at 16 and married unwisely at 18. She didn’t begin to pursue her childhood dream of writing until she left her unhappy marriage and went to university at the age of 30. After her BA she gained an MA in Creative Writing from Sheffield Hallam University.
Susan lives in Sheffield with her husband and a dog called Norman and spends her time writing, teaching creative writing, cooking and socialising with friends and family.
Susan’s powerful contemporary novels about women’s lives have been published to terrific reviews in many languages, shortlisted for prizes and ranked in the Nielsen bestseller chart.
