About Me

In November 2020 I decided to start a book blog. Somewhere to keep book reviews all together and a place for anything else that grabs my attention.

Who am I? I’m Sue an English Mum of two, living in Massachusetts since 2003 with my husband, kids, a cat named Midnight, a bunny named Nutmeg, a leopard gecko named Ziggy Stardust, and occasional frogs and salamanders.

I love alternative music, British alternative comedy and unusual art.

During Covid lockdown I wrote my grandfather, Henry John Rogers’ biography, Lucky Jack (1894 – 2000) and it is now available for purchase on Amazon.

In 2022 I collected together all of my late father’s writings and selected what I considered to be the best ones for an anthology I have entitled Daydreams & Narcoleptic Nightmares which is now available for purchase on Amazon with 15% of all profit being donated to the UK charity Narcolepsy UK.

I have two stories (one is an extract from Lucky Jack) in an anthology which came out in December 2021 called 40 Life Changing Events 2022 Edition, edited by Robert Fear. I also contributed a chapter to the Travel Stories Collection Box Set (only available digitally).

In 2022 I also contributed stories to a memoir anthology: 50 Intriguing Personal Insights, 2023 Edition and a creative fiction anthology, 15 Fascinating Fictional Tales, both edited by Robert Fear.

I hold a BA (Hons) in ‘German Studies’ from Manchester University, UK and a MSc in ‘Communication in Computing with Italian’ from Middlesex University, UK.

Thereafter, I worked for many years in London, UK in publishing, multimedia project management and website production. I currently do some freelance marketing work, in addition to website management, proofreading, writing, beta reading, and reviewing books for booknest.eu, Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team and this blog. I like a variety of genres, but I prefer to support indie authors where possible.
