Susie Day grew up by the seaside in Penarth, Wales, with a lisp and a really unfortunate choice of first name.
Her many careers have included guiding tourists, professional nappy-changing, teaching small people how many beans make five and taller people how to interrogate the beans from a post-structuralist perspective – but she always wanted to be a writer. Her first book, WHUMP! IN WHICH BILL FALLS 632 MILES DOWN A MANHOLE, won the BBC Talent Children’s fiction prize, and was published in 2004. She now writes contemporary standalone teen/YA fiction, and the PEA'S BOOK series for 9-12s.
Susie lives in Oxford, England in an international boarding school, sharing her home with 14 teenage boys. Yes, it does smell of feet.
