Sue studied illustration at university and also sold doughnuts from a kiosk at the zoo. The illustration career won and she has now illustrated what must be a 100 books. When she met Paul Linnet she found another twit with a silly sense of humour so they fell in love and started writing and illustrating together. They wrote such epic sagas as; ‘Barry the fish with fingers’,’Norman the slug with the silly shell’,’No-bot the robot’,’Supertato’ and ‘I need a wee’.
It seems that others enjoy their frankly ridiculous stories and they have won prizes and all sorts. As well as the Portsmouth Book award, Sheffield book award, Oxford book award and Simply books Book Factor, they also won the Lollies Laugh out loud award in 2016.
Some nice people had the great idea to make the books ‘Wanda and the Alien’ TV series, it can be viewed in nearly 70 different countries.
Sue and Paul live in an untidy and half decorated house in the seaside town of Brighton. They have a daughter called Wanda who is perfect in every way possible. Sue is pretty good at swimming and Paul likes to ride around on an old motorbike that he’s fussed about with.
