About Sue Watson

The British author Sue Watson is well known for her fun and inventive style of writing that gets straight to the heart of what it is that she’s trying to say. Largely writing romance and mystery novels, she really knows how to create a witty turn of phrase, combining this with her passion for storytelling. Her characters are also extremely well drawn too, as they essentially come alive off of the page, creating a rich and vibrant world for the reader to explore. Down-to-earth too, she really knows how to keep her stories and narrative grounded, letting her readers relate to what’s happening in a believable way. With more to come, she definitely has a lot more to say, whether it’s crafting a mystery, or seeing a romance blossom between her characters.

Early and Personal Life

Born in Manchester in the United Kingdom, Sue Watson was always interested in storytelling, showing a clear passion for literature from an early age. Becoming a journalist she would constantly be writing for a large audience, as she would take inspiration from the world around her. Following this she would go on to work in television, working as a producer, all the while using her time there as inspiration for her writing as well. Her time spent working at the BBC would come to influence her heavily over the years, something which can be seen reflected within her work. Studying copiously has also made her the writer that she currently is today, allowing her to articulate both herself and her stories.

This would come to fruition after she turned her hand to writing full-time, producing work in a style that was personal to her. Creating stories about real characters, she would establish worlds and narrative that were both witty and inventive in equal measure. Exploring all manner of story, she would write for a large audience, giving readers what they wanted, whilst creating something that was wholly authentic to her. Currently living in Worcestershire with her family, she continues to write to this present day, with a lot more to come yet.

Writing Career

Publishing her first book back in 2011, Sue Watson would step in to the limelight with the novel ‘Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes’. This would be her first debut novel and stand-alone title, as Sue Watson would draw from her own time spent working as a television producer. It would also see her stand out as a writer with something to say, allowing her to make her name as a writer who is both witty and entertaining. Following this she would go on to write ‘Younger, Thinner, Blonder’ in 2013, which would be another stand-alone title in a similar vein to before. Known for her incisive insights, Watson would display a sense-of-humor within her work, coupled with a very real and grounded sense of actual people too.

Not adverse to exploring the darker aspects of the human psyche either, she has also turned her hand to writing psychological thrillers too. Releasing the book ‘Our Little Lies’ in 2018, she would immerse herself and her readers in an altogether far darker world than before. This would clearly display her versatility as an author, allowing her to reach an even wider audience, with readers far and wide singing her many praises. Appreciated by both the critics and the general public alike, she’s been translated in to numerous different languages, as she will continue to be popular for a long time to come.

Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes

Originally published in 2011 on the 1st of September, this would be the first debut novel of Sue Watson as an author. Introducing her to the world as a writer, it would be published through the ‘Rickshaw Publishing’ outlet, whilst being a stand-alone novel. Using aspects from her own life, it would contain both humor and warmth in equal measure, allowing readers to gain a full idea of what she was really about.

Working as a television producer, Stella Weston feels that she has been put out to pasture on a religious gardening programme. Dealing with an extremely nervous vicar along with his somewhat nymphomaniac wife, Stella feels that she is at a loose end with it all. Balancing both her home life and her professional one over the years, she feels that time is now right to quit her job and move on to new territory. This appears to be harder than she first expected though, as she attempts to make amends with the world around her, whilst also looking to the future. Can she really make the leap? Will she find her new life at home sufficiently rewarding? What will become of fat girls and fairy cakes?

Ella’s Ice-Cream Summer

This time published through the ‘Bookouture’ publishing label, this would also be the first in ‘The Ice-Cream Cafe’ series. Later followed up with the novel ‘Curves, Kisses and Chocolate Ice-Cream’ in 2017, this would originally come out in 2017 itself on the 11th of May. Setting up the franchise, it would be a fun and breezy series of books that would entertain its many readers all the way throughout.

As a single mum, Ella feels that she’s hit an all time low, being jobless and now, very close to being made homeless too. That’s when she decides to head back to Appledore, a seaside town in Devon where she spent much of her youth. It is here that she has an family Ice-Cream truck to reclaim, as it appears to be somewhat broken and clapped out, bringing back a past with many secrets in it. Meeting Ben, a handsome solicitor, he attempts to help her get back on her feet and make the Ice-Cream truck work once more. Can she make a success of her new life here? Will her and Ben become an item? What will become of Ella’s Ice-Cream summer?

Our Little Lies

Released through ‘Bookouture’ once again, this would come out in 2018 on the 11th of October, being a stand-alone title. Taking a departure from the tone of her previous books, Sue Watson would here write a psychological thriller with many twists and turns. Looking at secrets lurking just beneath the surface of an otherwise seemingly ideal life, it sees the protagonist of Marianne in the lead, as she attempts to reconcile the fact that there may have been another woman with her husband Simon, as they ask themselves ‘what becomes of our little lies’?
