Thank you for visiting my website. I am a saga writer, living in beautiful North Wales. Moving here was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream, but my writing is inspired by my Mancunian roots.


I am represented by Laura Longrigg at MBA. My books are published by Allison & Busby (hardback, ebook and paperback), Magna Large Print and Isis Soundings (audiobooks).


Join me on my Facebook page. I am always delighted to accept friend requests from readers.


You can also chat with me on Twitter.

Latest News:


I am thrilled to share with you Tara Greaves's wonderful book review of A Resectable Woman.


Tara says, "With her second book Susanna Bavin has cemented her place as one of the country’s leading family saga writers. Following the success of her debut, The Deserter's Daughter, it must have been quite a feat to come up with a story equally as good but, in my opinion, she’s produced something even better..."

You can read the whole review here.




Currently, I am working on:


Book 6. Last week I introduced a new viewpoint character and this week I have introduced another one. That means that all four POV (point of view) characters are now in the mix.


My Blog


I post a fresh blog once a fortnight at the weekend. Generally, the posts are to do with books - writing them or reading them - but other topics also creep in. Do take a look and leave a comment if something interests you.


At the end of each month, my friend Kirsten Hesketh writes a gruest blog. Those of you who have followed these know that we have shared Kirsten's writing journeythrough the writing, editing, re-writing and submitting stages and now she has an agent and her book is being read by publishers.


The current blog is about the power of certain smells to transport you back in time.


The next new blog will be published on Saturday 29th September. In the meantime, here is one from the archives for you. It was published back in 2014, when my blog was quite new, and it's about findinfg out about family history. It's called My Great-Great-Grandmother and the Secret of Eternal Youth. I hope it raises a smile.

Living by the sea:


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


Take a look at some of my favourite photos by clicking on the Llandudno tab.


The latest section shows my favourite place in the whole world. Scroll down to the bottom of the Llandudno page to see where I mean.


Apologies if you visited my Llandudno page while the photos were duplicated. How this happened I have no idea, but I have now cleared up the page and removed all the duplicates. I have also added some more photos to the new section. I hope you enjoy them.
