Susie Day

Susie Day hi-res headshotSusie Day grew up by the seaside in Penarth, Wales, with a lisp and a really unfortunate choice of first name.

Her many careers have included tour guide, nursery nurse, teacher and residential warden in an international boarding school – but she always wanted to be a writer. Her first book, Whump! in which Bill falls 632 miles down a manhole, won the BBC Talent Children’s fiction prize, and was published in 2004. She wrote the Pea’s Book and Secrets series for 8-12s, and contemporary standalone teen/YA fiction.

Susie lives in Coventry, England with her partner and two cats: Pantalaimon and Ludo.

Susie is represented by Caroline Walsh at David Higham Associates.

She is published by Penguin Random House and Marion Lloyd Books/Scholastic.
