About the Author

Sue Moorcroft is a working writer. She writes novels, short stories, serials, articles, courses and "how to" books. (Yes - she works jolly hard.)

As a long-serving committee member of the Romantic Novelists' Association, Sue is the editor of Loves Me, Loves Me Not, a short-story anthology published to celebrate the association's 50th Anniversary.

Sue was born in Germany, part of an army family. Her childhood included living in Cyprus and Malta, as well as the UK. She has worked in a bank, as a bookkeeper (probably a mistake), for Motor Cycle News and for a typesetter but is pleased to be able to leave all those 'proper jobs' behind.
