  • Susie Day

    Susie Day grew up in Penarth, Wales, with a lisp and a really unfortunate 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, and herding boarding school students – but she always wanted to be a writer. She firmly believes in the dictum “write what you know”, which is why this book is about cake, watching telly, and helpless romantic flailitude.

    Susie lives in Oxford, and is probably drinking a cup of tea right now (she usually has one around this time of day).

    Her first novel, BIG WOO!, was published in 2008: “I honestly don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard while reading … very highly recommended” Chicklish.
