Suzy Davies is the author of the Children's Book: "Luna The Moon Pig: The Pig Who Hid," a fun new Children's Picture Book/EarlyReader that tells a tale of MUD, Mystery, MOONWISHES MAGIC, and the power of SELF-BELIEF!
It is illustrated by award-winning world-acclaimed illustrator and animator, Sheila Graber, famed for her work with Paddington Bear and family, Children's T.V, and her illustration and animation of Rudyard Kipling's "Just So" stories.
Suzy Davies was born in August 1957 at Battle Hospital in Reading, England, and grew up in Aberystwyth, Wales, and in Southwell, and Nuneaton, in England.
She attended Nuneaton High School for Girls and enjoyed a varied career before she went to Leicester University, where she achieved an Upper Second Honours Degree in Applied Sociology. She then earned a Teaching Certificate with Credit in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from Trinity College, London, and spent time abroad in The Czech Republic and South Korea, before returning to her native England, where she read English Literature as a postgraduate at The University of Sussex, and gained her Masters Degree. She has over ten years' experience as a teacher of English, E.S.O.L, Literacy, Learning Support and Key Skills, including a Lead Teacher Role, and a role where she taught nursery nurses and teachers, helping them to compile portfolios on Child Development. She has also worked with children from care homes and convicts on day release for The Princes Trust, teaching Literacy and Skills for The Workplace, to help them turn their lives around with the skills needed to build a new life for themselves.
While Suzy was in South Korea, she wrote her first novel, "Johari's Window," and she carried her manuscript "home" through customs at Seoul and Heathrow airports. This book was published in September 2014 by SilverWood Publishing.
In 2015, Suzy was walking along the beach at Southbourne-On-Sea, in the Bournemouth area of England, where she lived, when she sighted a magnificent polar bear, etched into The Needles on The Isle of Wight, across the ocean. This magnificent bear gave Suzy the idea for a Children's Book, "Snugs The Snow Bear," which was published by Snow Leopard Publishing in December 2016.
Suzy's Children's Picture Book - "Luna The Moon Pig, The Pig Who Hid," illustrated by award-winning world-acclaimed illustrator and animator, Sheila Graber, is Suzy's latest book, released in December 2017!
Suzy is a regular author contributor to The Young Writers' Newsletter and The Writers' Newsletter. She is also a Book Reviewer, a Certified Life Coach, (C.P.C.A.B) and Writing Mentor.
When Suzy is not reading, writing, reviewing or mentoring, she likes to commune with nature, go on beach walks, go boating, visit restaurants, and go to music gigs. She is also a big fan of ice shows and musical theatre.
