The series of books came from a conversation with my sister, who had badgers digging up her back garden and asked me if I knew how to discourage them from digging!! I did some research on badgers and became hooked on them!
Born in Bedford (UK) the eldest of four, Sue left secondary modern school at sixteen with no formal qualifications. Like all women, she had a family and worked long hard hours.
There had been no intention of writing a book until the badgers unexpectedly entered my sister’s garden and my new adventure began!
With the encouragement from her sister, she put pen to paper finding the experience to be rewarding and therapeutic, Sue is now involved in an ongoing writing project, capitalising on her interest and research into badgers and wildlife in general.
Sue hopes that the books will inspire and encourage reading (for all) including people with learning difficulties or disabilities, and young offenders to gain from reading.
The family moved from Bedford to Taunton in Somerset over 20 years ago, thereby enriching her understanding and enjoyment of nature and the countryside. The conflict between the need for housing development and wildlife has been motivational to her writing.
