Sue Bough lives in leafy North West London with her husband Charlie. After completing a Degree in Education, she spent a short time teaching in the UK and Paris before beginning a career in aviation. When not writing about blue creatures from distant planets, she can be found teaching non-technical skills to commercial airline pilots.
