Born a Londoner, travel writer Susie spent most of the first 25 years of her life in Kenya. In 2014, her memoir I Wish I Could Say I Was Sorry about an abusive childhood growing up in post-war London and Kenya, was a US digital bestseller. She now lives in south-west France with her husband and assorted animals. She believes that her explosive temper is a legacy from her Irish-American grandfather, but has no idea who to blame for her incompetence as a housewife. Susie Kelly is the Patron of the 2015 Charroux International Literary Festival.
'A book to inspire' Good Housekeeping Magazine; 'There are a handful of authors who will achieve that elusive trick of making you laugh out loud. For me it's James Herriot, Bill Bryson & Susie Kelly.' French Entree Magazine; 'What a great sense of humour Susie has. It makes her writing so endearing. She's down to earth, kind-hearted and insightful. You feel as though you are walking with her.' US Reader; 'An amazing lady. Susie is an excellent author, descriptive, informative, and able to paint a picture with words that makes me feel like I am beside her on her journey. Perfect for the Francophile, the armchair adventurer, and the lover of good literature for this is surely literature.' Vine Voice reviewer; 'Reading her books is like listening to relaxing music.' US reader; 'This is one of the best travel books I have read to date. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every drop of it.' Vine Voice reviewer; 'How anyone man or women could leave their home (in the care of good person) and set of to WALK right across France is beyond me. She is an amazing person, so left reliant and brave she is incredible. The writing is in the style of a friend talking to you over a coffee, it is so personal. I have found a fabulous author in Susie Kelly and would recommend her books to everyone.' UK reader
