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 Childrens fiction prize, and was published in 2004. She now writes contemporary standalone teen/YA fiction, and the Peas Book series for 8-12s.

Susie lives in Oxford, England in an international boarding school, sharing her home with 11 teenage boys. Yes, it does smell of feet.
