Susan writes steamy, sexy and fun contemporary gay romance stories, some suspenseful, some gritty and dark, and others just plain ahhhh.
She’s what her doctor calls ‘ a high functioning over achiever’. Susan loves being part of ‘stuff’ and embraces challenges, finding it difficult to say no to exciting ventures. That’s probably why she’s also Editor in Chief at Divine Magazine, an online LGBTQ e-zine, and a Charity Board trustee at The Being Me Campaign in London. The LGBTQI community and world diversity are the two things she’s truly passionate about, apart from her writing and her poor hard done by, eye rolling but incredibly supportive family.
Lover of angst and conflict, she enjoys putting her characters through the emotional wringer and bringing them out the other side with an HEA or at the very least, a HFN.
She’s passionate about research for her books and has stayed in a circus, taken lessons from a blind person on how it feels to be non-sighted, and travelled to a lighthouse with maintenance crew to see first-hand what it’s like inside. She’s also written a screen play with Hollywood actor and heart-throb Nicholas Downs, with a view to taking her latest release, Sight Unseen, to the big screen. It’s a huge project but she’s loving every minute.
Susan attained PAN status with the Romance Writers of America with her first M/M book, Stripped Bare. She’s currently a member of The Society of Authors in the UK and the Authors Guild in the US. She enjoys being a member of Queer Romance Ink, All Author, Book + Main Bites and the Paranormal Romance Guild.

Due to her belief that everyone should be treated equal, and should be able to be themselves no matter what their differences, Susan is also a Board Trustee for a wonderful charity called The Being Me Campaign. It’s something she has a real passion for, believing that the culture of tolerance and acceptance starts with youth and yet can also be imparted to adults. You can find more about this by clicking on the link. The Being Me Campaign was proud to be the preferred charity for the shiMMer event that took place in July 2017.
If you fancy hearing Susan’s dulcet tones, or fancy a laugh, here’s some radio interviews she’s done over the years. You might find them informative, hopefully you’ll have a chuckle or two. The first one is a Benedict Cumberbatch themed conversation between two dyed in the wool Cumberbitches
Susan is interviewed by award winning dystopian sci-fi novelist, John Trevillian about my incursion into the writing world.
