Welcome Susannah!



The team have been eagerly waiting for Susannah Rickards to join the Strictly Writing blog. She is a busy bee but has finally carved out time for us and we look forward to her first post - no pressure there, then, Susannah!


Here's a short word from the woman herself!


"I'm from the North East but now live in Surrey with my twin boys and my husband. I write mainly short stories and have had them, and poetry anthologised, broadcast and won/placed in a few awards. I teach creative writing and literacy and also waitress to earn a living. I love Lit Fic and Crime and am trying to write a second crime novel. The first is in a box and the second is heading that way. Short lit fic is my first love as a reader and writer. I love Kyle Minor, Tobias Wolff, Alice Munro, Chekhov, Graham Greene and many many more. Also love dancing, climbing hills, biking through the woods and tickle tournaments with my boys."


Welcome on board, Susannah!

Hello, Susannah! Yay for tickle tournaments too! I don't have two boys but I have a four yr old girlie and 48 yr old husband who stands in very well as a child!!

Welcome Susannah! I read your biog too fast and wrongly interpreted the line as: "I love Kylie Minogue!"

Thanks everyone for the lovely welcome. Just got back from a long day waitressing with fantastic fly on the wall stuff which will go straight into the notebooks. I love listening into the conversations...

Intrigued to know what welcome message could possibly have been removed by a blog administrator...

Gillian, lol, my husband loves Kylie Minogue so not too far from the truth!
