Sue Hampton - Author

Sue Hampton is a full-time author.

For most of her life she was teacher, and was nominated for Teacher of the Year in 2004. In 2005 she took a sabbatical to pursue her dream of being a writer. Her debut work, Spirit and Fire, was published in 2007. She had previously also ran her own vegetarian food business.

At twenty-four, Sue was diagnosed with alopecia. Having spent most of her subsequent life wearing a wig in public, the success of her writing gave her the confidence to admit her condition. She is now an ambassador for Alopecia UK.

Sue has visited over 500 schools up and down the country to inspire children and teenagers to read and write, and also addresses adult audiences including trainee teachers at university. With her husband Leslie Tate, poet and novelist, she visits writers’ and reading groups. “Being a full-time author is thrilling because I love words and I’m happy when I’m immersed in characters and situations I’ve created which feel absolutely real.’
