Author Bio

Susan's first picture books were published in the year 2000. She has been a teacher for many years, pursuing her interests in behavioural science, education, mental health, and neuroscience. She sees picture books and art as essential tools in supporting young families, and healthy brain development. Susan currently lives in Oxford, England, and loves to write while watching the foxes and squirrels that inhabit her garden.

When Nichola was little, she covered her bedroom walls with drawings of her favourite cartoon characters, and she has been drawing ever since! Her tablet stylus is never far away. She has worked in children's publishing for many years and takes her inspiration from the cute, the quirky, and whatever makes people laugh.
