More About the Author

I was born and educated in the UK (I am British!) but now live in Portugal. I've been an English teacher for many years with the British Council and also the Portuguese civil service where I developed e-learning courses.

My first love is, of course, my husband, my second writing, and my third painting. And now I have time to be able to indulge in all three.

My debut novel, "Perfect Score" was published by Awe-Struck Publishing on Sept 21, 2010 and the paperback launched on May 11 2011. It was a finalist in the 2012 EPIC e-book Awards in the Mainstream Category.

Here's a blurb:
'Perfect Score' is about the rite of passage of two young men, Alex and Sam, from the opposite side of the tracks. Alex lives in his uncle's mansion, and while money and a stable future have been lined up for him by his powerful and withholding uncle, he wants nothing more than to be a song writer and to live happily ever after with Sam -- a boy he met once when he was in his teens. Sam's life is more wretched: he was abused, ran away from the fists of an abusive step-father and unstable foster homes, and lived most of his prepubescent and teen years in the streets, fending for himself and taking on as many jobs as he could to pay for his sister's bills at the hospital for the crippled. Struggling to make sense of the two divergent lives they have been dealt, Alex and Sam find their way to one another through a journey full of boundless love and compassion, growth, and strength.

My second novel is a dark thriller/fantasy called Hewhay Hall. It was published by Etopia Press in Apri 2012. It won an EPPIE award in the 2013 EPIC (Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition) e-Book Awards in the Horror Category.

Here's what author Tamera Lawrence said about Hewhay Hall on GoodReads:
Hope. It's such a simple word. Yet it's what drives most of us. Hope for a brighter future. Hope for wealth, happiness, health. So when firefighter Jude Elliot loses a leg due to a bomb explosion, he has a hard time adjusting and suffers from traumatic stress disorder. But hope flairs anew in Jude as he discovers there is a place called Hewhay Hall - a place with innovative medicine and refined rehabilitation. It might just be able to turn Jude's life around. So begins Jude's quest to find the elusive Hewhay Hall. But all is not what it seems. For Hewhay Hall holds a dark seductive mistress and birdlike creatures. So what begins as a hopeful journey into the dark English swampland quickly turns to survival against evil.
HEWHAY HALL by Sue Roebuck is a true page turner. It held my attention from page one with its distinctive characters and unique setting. Then came the horror of Hewhay Hall and I was hooked till the very end. Jude Elliot was as likable as they come. Equally compelling was Tess as she tries desperately to find Jude. Miss Verity Slater was vile and fascinating. I couldn't wait to see what made her tick and was not disappointed in the find. HEWHAY HALL was a fascinating read that made me squirm a bit. I really enjoyed this horrific tale and would like to see more works from this talented author. Wonderful read!

5.0 out of 5 stars An enthralling read 7 Aug. 2012
By BML
Format:Kindle Edition
I had thoroughly enjoyed "Perfect Score" - Ms Roebuck's first novel about two young men, their lives and the way they came to terms with their feelings for one another - so I eagerly pounced on her latest book - Hewhay Hall. In this book Jude, an ex-fireman who lost a leg in a bomb blast, has heard about a re-habilitation centre looking for volunteers to trial their latest treatments. Jude sets off to find this centre only to find it was not what it seemed to be. His wife, Tess, with the help of her feisty sister Leah and an eccentric neighbour who speaks with spirits determine to find Jude to ensure that he is fine as they are unable to communicate with him. Ms Roebuck's descriptions of the countryside, the weird and frightening monsters from the swamps and the inmates of the Hall are beautifully written and enthralling - definitely a page turner. This book is of a genre that I would not normally buy or read but I was completely converted and am now willing to widen my reading tastes. With these two books I now look forward to reading Ms Roebuck's next - no matter what genre she chooses!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fast intriguing story 26 Aug. 2012
By Mary L
Format:Kindle Edition
Hewhay Hall is a charming novella, one for a single sitting. It's the story of Jude, whose desperation to feel whole again after losing a leg while trying to rescue a family from an imminent bomb blast, leads him to seek out the elusive and mythical Hewhay Hall. I shan't say too much about Hewhay Hall and who it is for, because it will spoil some of the revelations in the story... but it has fallen into bad hands and bad ways. Can our hero rescue himself from his dire circumstances or the other captives he finds there... before his family blunder into the same situation in their attempts to get him back?
There is plenty of horror here, and false leads, so you wonder frequently which are the voices or characters you should be trusting...the lovely Verity, the bog-wights, Gush, or the mad Wiccan next door? But there is also love... even when it doesn't know how to express itself any more... and heroism.
Roebuck has taken an unusual premise and so made her horror relevant to the atrocities which have affected our terrorist-torn cities. Although the story flows past these questions, they are still there... how do we cope after bombings and war? How do we welcome those affected back into our homes and communities; and what is left for them of the lives they used to lead? Do we speak the same language any more?
This story is also nicely planted in the real world, with characterisation which paints vivid pictures of daily life - a verisimilitude which only makes the horror bite deeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously Dark 12 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this very quickly indeed, it's a fast-paced, gripping read and the characters are well-developed and interesting. I particularly loved the voice of the younger teen protaganist; her phrasing and very individual character comes across as genuine and natural. The married couple at the centre of the story face their own difficulties, separate from one another, which is always a great way to tell whether they stand up as characters in their own right. These do! The story is unusual, dark, and extremely compelling ... hard to close the Kindle!
A satisfying, well-told tale, and one which has persuaded me to buy more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Admirable switch of genre 14 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll admit to approaching this book with some trepidation. The author's previous - and debut - novel was a male/male romance set in cowboy country. How would she handle a dark supernatural tale? The answer is: pretty damned well. Roebuck's writing style is different from my own but I have to say that in parts my skin crawled and that little icy bicycle ran down my spine. That was a pleasant surprise. We get some good characters, too. The barmy local medium is just like someone I know. And in true Roebuck style there's no skimping on the sense of place. A commendable foray to the dark side and I hope she'll follow it up with more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware of bogwights! 22 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hewhay Hall is a brilliant read. Compelling, scary and packed full of atmosphere. Jude, Tess and Leah - the main characters - work well. They're real and credible and the relationship rings true, with just the right amount of conflict. The suspense and build up of terror is excellent and I stayed up rather later than I should as I couldn't put it down. Clever ending too, which I am not revealing. This is also a highly original plot and written in such a visual way, it demands a film! In short - loved it!
