Sue Whiting started her working life as a primary school teacher with a special interest in literacy education and children’s literature. One school holiday, Sue put on a dinosaur costume and went to work as a storyteller at a children’s party shop. It was then she realised that telling stories was the job for her. In 2005 Sue left teaching to pursue a career in publishing and now works as a children’s book editor. She is also a successful children’s author who has written many books, including picture books, chapter books and novels for pre-teens. Her latest books include Get a Grip Cooper Jones (novel 10+), and ghostly thriller Portraits of Celina (13+).
Sue loves sharing her passion for writing and her love of books and reading with others and frequently presents at schools, libraries, festivals and conferences. The dinosaur costume is now moth-eaten and mildewy, but Sue has a bag full of others … For more information visit www.suewhiting.com .
