Sue writes a dairy for the Yorkshire Post on a Saturday and is officially one of England’s top 20 eccentrics from a book by Henry Hemmings called ‘In Search of the English Eccentric.’ It may have something to do with living above Grassington in a house with none of the facilities we all take for granted.

As a published author of murder mysteries set in Yorkshire, her new novel should be coming out soon and she will be happy to sign any books you have. She has been a shepherd and before she joined the police she was, for a short time, a professional opera singer.

She also featured in an ancient TV programme called ‘The Village’ when she was a police officer in Hampshire, at a village called Bentley. She is currently singing in 4 choirs, has several rescue dogs and one geriatric cat. She is also involved with various crafts such as spinning, knitting, patchwork (out of men’s ties) and tapestry. Do bring any old ties you may have so that they can be re-purposed for charity.

All she asks is that the audience laugh, either at her or with her, she doesn’t mind which.
