Hi, I'm Susan. I am an avid reader and a keen writer.
About my Reviews
I love writing reviews; I go through so
many books I find it a good way to remind myself what they were about
and what I thought of them. Sooz Book Reviews seemed like a good way to
share them with anyone who might be interested.
I particularly love to read novels by
other independent authors and peer-review. I don't take requests,
partly because I wouldn't be able to cope with too many, and partly
because I am selective.
I should clarify; I don't write reviews to help authors sell books. I write them to help potential readers make an informed choice, based on my opinion.
About my Writing
far I have produced 2 books that have been independently published. My
debut novel, Butterfly porcupine, is the first in a coming-of-age
series called Tales from Aintree Court, and was first published in
paperback in February 2011. A second revised edition was published in
July 2012. My second novel, 'Two
versions of the same song', the second Aintree tale, was published in
December 2012 and I am currently writing the third in the series.
stories are pitched at the level for readers in their mid-to-late teens
but may be enjoyed by adults who enjoy reading contemporary YA fiction

I write YA fiction and, as a consequence, I read a lot of YA fiction. However, it is important to me that I read any and every genre for any and every age and this blog will to some extent reflect that.
