Susie Kelly

"Susie Kelly was born in grey post-war London, and spent much of her childhood and young adulthood in the beautiful country of Kenya. She is passionate about animal welfare, and lives in south-west France with a menagerie of dogs, cats, pygmy goats, chickens and a parrot. Her first book "Best Foot Forward" was published by Transworld Publishers in 2003, followed by "Two Steps Backward" in 2004, and "A Perfect Circle" in 2006. Since 2011 Susie's books have been published by Blackbird Digital Books, whose theme is strong, adventurous women living life to the full. Blackbird Digital Book people love birds and animals, travel, history, romance, natural health and environment, resourcefulness, humour, the surreal and magic. If her house caught fire and she could only save three things (apart from her animals, of course), they would be courage, compassion and a sense of humour."
