Writing as Lucy Daniels and Daisy Meadows, she has contributed to the Animal Ark and Rainbow Magic series. Along with her own series of Magic Kitten, Magic Puppy, Magic Ponies and Magic Bunny, her books have been translated into around twenty languages. Sue discovered books at an early age and has been an avid reader ever since. She worked for Northamptonshire libraries for many years, and continued to work there while learning the craft of writing. Sue is fascinated by the unusual, the hidden and the unexpected in the everyday. Her work often includes the darker elements of suspense. She loves everything about books, how they feel, how they smell, how they transport you to new and secret worlds. Her lifetime fascination with the folklore of the British Isles, and all things fairy (faerie) began when she discovered the world of beauty and twisted darkness lurking in many classic fairy tales. We Other - Sue’s first book for Young Adult readers - was a labour of love. She is currently at work on Second Skin, another dark fantasy novel about people who have the ability to become dragons. She is also planning to complete the second novel set in the world of We Other, entitled, Scar You.

Robin Brown
Robin Brown is Alex's Mummy. When Alex was very little, his Mummy put coloured dots on her piano, and wrote out some of his favourite songs in coloured notes. Alex was able to play these songs by following the colours. Soon he was playing dozens of songs, and asking for more! This gave him a great start for when he began formal lessons, and he was performing at school events from the age of 5. A busy doctor in the British NHS, Robin was one day struck down by illness. Weak and confined to her home, Robin began to reorganise and add to her coloured music, until eventually they filled eight children's music books. Robin's credentials includes her basic medical degree MBChB, Membership of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP), Postgraduate Certificate in Work Based Medical Education (PGCert in WBME), and Fellowship of the Higher Education Authority (FHEA). Musically, she is trained to ABRSM Grade 7 on the piano. A teacher at heart, Robin has been extensively involved in teaching medical students and young doctors. She was previously a Teaching Fellow, and is presently an Honorary Lecturer, at the Manchester Medical School, one of the largest in the country. She is the named author of its Year 3 Liver, Biliary and Pancreatic Diseases online module. Robin's passion as a teacher now leads her to put into writing her approach in teaching her son Alex to play the piano, for the benefit of other children and adults. Her books are beautiful, simple and uncluttered, written for parents and not just music teachers
