More About the Author

Suzan St Maur is a prolific author and expert nonfiction writer. Check out her rapidly-growing website that helps you get better results from all types of writing: HowToWriteBetter.net

Her background...

Canadian born Suzan St Maur (a.k.a. "Suze") was transported to the UK when a child and despite resultant cultural challenges managed to graduate from British high school, but with no talent for anything other than writing - so her career options were fairly clear cut. Afterwards she attended and graduated from the then-famous Watford Art School advertising writing course and worked in London ad agencies as a copywriter for a few years, before deciding she was far too bolshie to be an employee and so became a freelancer.

While comfortably paying her mortgage and bills, her freelance writing work took off into the areas of business theatre and corporate video, in which disciplines she became the Grandma Moses of corporate script and speechwriting for many years. Suze also developed useful skills as a conference and video producer, largely in emergencies caused by the actual practitioners' bunking off through illness, drunkenness, excessive use of recreational substances, etc. (It's amazing how fast you can learn to do a job if the person who should be doing it is in la-la-land and you have a 20-crew video shoot or 7-figure-budget convention about to begin.)

Her work today...

These days Suze still takes on commissioned text, speechwriting, scriptwriting plus author coaching and editing, in addition to running her very popular website HowToWriteBetter.net and of course, writing books. She is even about to embark upon fiction, with two novels in negotiation with a UK publisher who finally - phew - appreciates her acerbic sense of humour. She also is one of the core team writers on BirdsOnTheBlog.co.uk, judged by Forbes as one of the top 100 websites for women in the world.

Being a "jobbing writer" has meant that Suze can research and write about pretty well anything, and this is reflected in the somewhat eclectic mix of her numerous published titles:

*The Jewellery Book (with Norbert Streep) (Magnum)
*The Home Safety Book (Jill Norman Books)
*The A to Z of Video and AV Jargon (Routledge)
*Writing Words That Sell (with John Butman) (Management Books 2000)
*Writing Your Own Scripts and Speeches (McGraw Hill)
*The Horse Lover's Joke Book (Kenilworth Press)
*Powerwriting: the hidden skills you need to transform your business writing (Prentice Hall Business)
*Canine Capers: over 350 jokes to make your tail wag (Kenilworth Press)
*The Food Lover's Joke Book (ItsCooking.com)
*Get Yourself Published (LeanMarketing Press)
*The Easy Way To Be Brilliant At Business Writing (LeanMarketing Press)
*Wedding Speeches For Women (How To Books)
*The Country Lover's Joke Book (Merlin Unwin Books)
*The A to Z of Wedding Worries (How To Books)
*How To Get Married In Green (How To Books)
*Planning A Winter Wedding (How To Books)
*How To Write Winning Nonfiction (Publishing Academy, 2010)
*The A to Z of Wedding Wisdom (How To Books 2010)
*The MAMBA way to make your words sell (HowToWriteBetter.net)
*How To Write About Yourself (HowToWriteBetter.net)
*How To Write & Give Brilliant Speeches & Presentations (HowToWriteBetter.net)
*The Pony Lover's Joke Book (Kenilworth Press 2011)
*Successful Business Writing In English (HowToWriteBetter.net, due 2011)

Personal stuff...

On a less cheerful note, Suze has had cancer twice and is undergoing regular treatment for it. Wishing to lighten the load, a few years ago she started the blog CancerComicStrip.blogspot.com, which has become a popular stopping-off point for cancer patients, their carers, families and friends to relax and share a few laughs.

Suze lives in a village near the new city of Milton Keynes in central southern England with her student son plus numerous dogs, cats, a fox under the shed and a badger that visits whenever it manages to squeeze under the fence. When she isn't writing Suze is cooking, gardening, dog-walking, tending her orchids or planning her next trip "home" to Canada, while sipping a glass of decent Chablis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny on so many levels! 3 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
This little book is packed with laughs and would make an ideal present for anyone 'horsey' or anyone with an interest in the countryside. There are many different types of jokes and stories, from witty one-liners, to longer amusing pieces that had me in stitches!

I heartily recommend this funny (and very reasonably priced) book as a Christmas stocking filler, or birthday present, or simply just a nice little gift for someone you love (or like me, for yourself for a giggle!). I can guarantee you'll have a smile on your face only a page in!

Enjoy

:-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Much mirth and merriment! 8 Dec 2009
By Bhexx
Format:Paperback
Superb stocking filler and so much entertainment for the price!

This book is very well written and will have you sniggering to yourself as you're reading it, especially for the seasoned horse lovers out there. Every horse lover knows that sometimes if you didn't laugh you'd cry - so grab yourself a copy and dip into it the next time Shergar leaves you with a hefty vet bill, you'll be right as rain in no time :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for all ages! 2 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is not your usual tacky joke book, it is well thought out, witty, humorous and funny. Very observational regarding horsey people and their not so horsey partners, some of it is as truthful as it is humorous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for horse lovers! 15 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a colleague who has been mad about horses since before she could walk. She absolutely loved it. I couldn't resist a read before giving it to her and even though I'd struggle to tell the front from the back of a horse I found it very funny.
