Sue Hampton is an ex-teacher who has been a full-time writer since 08. She is the author of more than 20 varied novels for children and teenagers, set in the past, present and future and across genres like humour, mystery and fantasy as well as real-world human drama. Her hero Michael Morpurgo has praised three of her titles: "Beautifully written" THE WATERHOUSE GIRL, "terrific" JUST FOR ONE DAY and "enthralling" SPIRIT AND FIRE. She already has one adult novel called ARIA, existing in e-book and audiobook form. Inspired by the work of George Eliot, Virginia Woolf and Carole Shields, she also admires Siobhan Dowd and Susan Fletcher, and writes from character and with passion. She enjoys visiting schools - more than 500 so far - to inspire children of all ages to read and write. Sue lost all her hair to alopecia in 1981 but decided in 09 to walk bareheaded in the world with an important message to share about respect and identity. As an Ambassador for Alopecia UK, she embraces difference and individuality in life and in her work. An eco-activist, she sees herself as a keyboard warrior in more ways than one.Sue lives in Hertfordshire with her husband, author and poet Leslie Tate. Together, as #authorsinlove, they present to writers' groups and library groups, and run Berkhamsted Live, a mixed-arts show. Sue has appeared at various book festivals (Lincoln, Alton, Flamstead and Lyme Regis, plus the Seed Festival) and like Leslie will be at Banbury Literary Live 2015.
