The children’s series, Play Time Books, is underway from the author, of which Come Find Me Under The Sea is the first to arrive in this series followed by Back In Time With Dinosaurs and then It’s A Dog’s Life. Titles after this are yet to be determined! These particular books have a story, a few colouring pages and lastly a game at the end of the book that relates to the story. These books were designed for the child who is on their own or off traveling with the family.
Messruther has lived in Cairns, Queensland, Australia and now currently resides in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England, with her family and Oscar, an Old English Sheep puppy of gigantic proportions, (Digby is a constant thought and fear, and will Oscar grow that big!) Thankfully, his growth has slowed down now so Digby II is safe from reality!
Sue Messruther is very family orientated and has 6 grown up children which she treasures and dedicates a lot of her books to and currently has 6 grandchildren who knows what the final count will be!
Messruther spends a lot of her time either playing with grandchildren, chatting and sipping coffee with her children or you will find her in her allotment that she thoroughly enjoys and proudly grows organic healthy food for her family. Her job that she enjoys is full time and is looking after the aged and disabled in their homes, she finds this very rewarding and truly cares about all those she looks after and takes out.
She has been asked when does she have time to create all of her wonderful and very diverse books? She laughs and says she gets up in the wee hours of the morning to work on them and often ideas come to her when she is dreaming, weeding in her allotment or out drinking tea with those she looks after in her job. She did say that she never stops even when on holidays where she takes her laptop and voice recorder because you just never know when an idea is going to suddenly pop into her imagination!
