About the author

Susan Price

<p> I was firmly convinced that I decided to become an author at the age of seven, after reading Kipling&#39;s Jungle Books - until I was talking to my aunt recently. She told me that she remembered me marching up to her and my grandmother, putting my hands on my hips and announcing,&#39;When I grow up I&#39;m going to be a writer!&#39;<br /> &quot;You were four,&quot;she said.<br /> Whether four or seven when I made the decision, I never wavered thereafter. I have always been single-minded - &#39;as a drop-hammer,&#39; my father said. But bloody-minded single-mindedness is an essential quality in a writer. Without it, you probably wouldn&#39;t even finish a first draft.<br /> It was my father who signed my first publishing contract, because I was 16, and under-age. I&#39;d have been fairly happy if that had been my one and only book - I&#39;d achieved that ambition at least. But luck was with me, and I&#39;ve gone on to publish something like 60 books, for different ages and in different genres; and am now self-publishing on Kindle - something that wasn&#39;t even envisaged in science-fiction when my first book came out.
