Early days and Sue's love of words

Sue Moorcroft is a Sunday Times bestselling author and has reached the #1 spot in the UK Kindle chart, Top 100 in Canada, US and Italy, and Top Fifty in Germany. She's won the Goldsboro Books Contemporary Romantic Novel Award, Readers' Best Romantic Novel Award, a HOLT Medallion and the Katie Fforde Bursary. Her novels of love and life are currently released by publishing giant HarperCollins in the UK, US and Canada and by an array of publishers in other countries. She's the president of the Romantic Novelists' Association.

An army kid, Sue was born in Germany and spent much of her childhood in Cyprus and Malta. She arrived in 'Civvy Street' in Northamptonshire, England shortly before she was ten. Making friends was much harder than it had been amongst the constantly shifting populace of a barracks so Sue spent much of the next few months in the library and her love of books grew and grew. She topped her class in story writing and her teacher said, 'One day there will be novels on the shelves with "Sue Moorcroft" on the spine.'

Although she didn't like him much, she eventually proved him right. Her first short stories to UK magazines were sold in 1996, one to The People's Friend and then another to My Weekly. My Weekly published first, beginning a writing career that was to span short stories, articles and columns, magazine serials, a writing guide, writing courses and bestselling novels. Along the way, she worked for a bank, a sports newspaper, a typesetter, a joinery company, as a creative writing tutor and a competition judge… but nothing gave her the joy and satisfaction of her current job of 'author'.

Still an avid reader, Sue also loves family and friends, travel, dance and yoga. Though she's now given up her column for, she's a mad-keen motorsports fan, particularly Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3 and W Series. Please don't talk to her when she's watching a race.
