Profile: Sue McCaskill

About This Author

Sue was born in post war England, and lived there until the age of nine, when she and her mother emigrated to Canada. Her father died when she was eight, and left a huge impression on her. Both her parents encouraged her to read, and learn. She has always believed in fairies and elves, and probably always will, and as a child, she saw things many others didn't, and as a result she was thought to be a little strange. Although she has been in Canada for so many years, she still misses the English and Welsh countryside, and because of this, her novel is based in the ancient, picturesque town of Betws-Y-Coed. About herself, she says: "I think I was born a writer, and got more confidence thanks to my grade five teacher, (I refer to him as my favourite Machiavelli), who fostered my love of writing. I didn't write for almost 40 years, because of raising kids, life happenings, the usual drama. I started again sporadically ten years ago, and now in my 60s I have finally finished the book."
