Welcome to my website. I am a saga writer, living in North Wales, but my books are all set in and around Manchester, which is where my family has lived for generations and I grew up.


I write stand-alone novels as Susanna Bavin. As Polly Heron, I write The Surplus Girls 1920s saga series while as Maisie Thomas, I write The Railway Girls saga series set in the Second World War.


To find out about my books, click on the tabs at the side.


Here are my Amazon author pages for me writing as Susanna and as Polly and Maisie.   


And here is my Twitter link for Susanna - and here are Polly's and Maisie's.


Here is my Polly Heron website, with lots more information about the Surplus Girls series.


And you can fine me on Facebook on my Maisie Thomas author page for the latest information about all my books - Susanna's and Polly's as well as Maisie's. I also share snippets I've found in my research as well as other things I hope my readers will enjoy. As a community, every weekend we share what we're currently reading. We're a friendly lot, so do join us!

Latest News:


Hello, everyone, and a belated happy new year! I have had a break from all social media, but now I'm back and I'm delighted to be in touch with you again.


My latest news is that I'm past halfway in writing book 6 in The Railway girls series, A Christmas Miracle for the Railway Girls, which will be published in November. A very exciting thing that happened this week was that I was shown some possible photos for the front cover. It's going to be gorgeous!

Living by the sea:


I love living in Llandudno. We've been here for eight years now, but that "Wow! We really live here," feeling never goes away.
