Flying and travel are in Susan Moss's blood as she visited four of the world's continents before starting school. She read avidly and wrote determinedly in between plotting to become a spy and building brother-proof camps.
She studied Psychology at Trinity College, Cambridge, taking part in some interesting experiments in parapsychology as well as playing trumpet in a Big Band.
A chance meeting in an Austrian ski hut resulted in more travel - this time to Germany, where she now lives in a small town outside Frankfurt with her husband and son.
She still makes use of her trumpet-playing, spying and camp-building skills in her busy life as an author, mother and freelance marketing consultant.
The Bother in Burmeon, her first published novel, won the Earlyworks Press international 'Novels for Children or Teens' competition, and the sprequel, Trouble in Teutonia, was short-listed for the International Rubery Award in 2015.
