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 and I also write The Surplus Girls saga series for Corvus under the name Polly Heron.


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 here is my Twitter link as Susanna - and here is Polly's. Do pop over and have a chat.


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

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.
