Sue Reid Sexton
Sue Reid Sexton's published work includes the novels Mavis's Shoe, a young girl's story of the Clydebank Blitz, Rue End Street, what happened next around the Clyde, and a memoir, Writing on the Road: Campervan Love and the Joy of Solitude, a meditation on using a tiny camper as a creative space and escape hatch.
A believer in the importance of accuracy in historical fiction, Sue also loves a great story, especially when it involves everyday heroes. Her books have been celebrated as Waterstones' and Books from Scotland's book of the month, amongst others. All her books have appeared in braille simultaneously with the printed ink version.
Sue's other activities include facilitating groups (e.g. Blitz Remembered), teaching (e.g. in prisons), ghost writing (especially memoirs or for foreign nationals) and leading a variety of events at book festivals (e.g. Edinburgh International Book Festival and Aye Write!) and writers' organisations or history clubs (e.g. Ayr Writers' Club). Sue has read in the Scottish Parliament multiple times and appeared on radio several more, and also works as a therapeutic counsellor specialising in trauma. She lives in Glasgow but has a campervan and will travel.
