Suzanne McLeod  - Bio

Author of the Urban Fantasy Series
Growing up I was always the child that hid behind the settee, or took a torch to bed, or walked around ignoring the rest of the world, because I was reading a book. The highlight of my week was the trip to the library. Then, the highlight of my year was when I get to take a suitcase of brand new books and escape with it to somewhere hot, with plenty of sea and sand and Margaritas. Of course, now I have an ereader!

In order to afford the books and the holidays, (as well as those other pesky essentials, like food, the mortgage, and bills!) I’ve been a cocktail waitress, a dance group roadie, and a secretary. I've worked in pubs, hotels and a football club (despite having no love for the beautiful game) and I’ve sold everything from sweeties to jewellery, and garden sheds to car insurance.
Other than reading, my hobbies usually involve knocking down walls, the odd bit of plumbing, and experiements in baking usually involving cupcakes! So far, they've all turned out extremely eatable! Other than cake, my favourite meal is anything fishy, preferably sushi or shellfish, and when not indulging in the holiday Margaritas, I like the odd glass of red wine, or a single malt. Oh, and chocolate, of course!

Urban fantasy has grown into a highly popular sub-genre over the last few years and Suzanne McLeod's approach is to mix in murder-mystery to the heady brew of vampires, strange creatures and fairy folk. The result is

Teenage fox cubs terrorising mum!  -   more videos here

I was born in London, but spent most of my childhood in the Midlands. Since then I’ve been a bit of a nomad, having lived and/or worked in most parts of the UK. Now I’m settled on the South Coast about a mile away from the sea, along with my wonderful husband. And this year we've been lucky in that our garden's been home to a pack of fox cubs!
