Susie Day was born in Penarth, South Wales in possession of three older sisters, a lisp, and a rather unfortunate choice of first name.
She has a BA in English Literature from Oxford University, an MSt in English Literature from Oxford University, and is still grasping at a doctorate in English Literature from Oxford University. Despite this lack of imagination, Susie always wanted to be a writer. At the age of 8 she co-wrote a radio play entitled "Paperback Writer," based on the Beatles' song, and inexplicably about a racehorse that really wanted to win the Grand National. Hopefully her Mum has lost the one remaining copy. Susie's first book, Whump!...In Which Bill Falls 632 Miles Down a Manhole, won the BBC Children's Fiction Prize and was serialized on Radio 4 in 2004. Susie likes Arthur Ransome, Scotland, Time Lords, and cheese. She lives in Oxford, and hopes one day to find the "off" switch on the television.
