Magic Oxygen Children's Books - Holiday Bargain Bundle

Featured Author: Sue Hampton

Sue Hampton

Sue Hampton, happy these days to be known as the Bald Green Author, was born in Essex and now lives in Herts with her husband and fellow author, Leslie Tate.

Inspired by her father Paul, who was a poet, she wrote as a child and has never stopped – even through 19 years of teaching as a working mum. Her first book for children, the historical adventure Spirit and Fire, was published in 07 and described by Michael Morpurgo as “enthralling… powerfully written”. It was the first of 25 and counting. Most titles are for children or teens, like the fantasy adventure The Dreamer, but Sue also has three books for adults, including Flashback & Purple and e-book The Biggest Splash, both from Magic Oxygen. Click “Add to basket” below to buy Sue’s latest title.

Sue is a prolific writer, in high demand in schools as a visiting author for any age, and an Ambassador for Alopecia UK. You may have seen her lead a team of bareheaded ladies to a £29,000 victory for the charity on BBC Eggheads! Click here for some highlights from that programme.
