Children’s Books

I love to write childrens books and dive into their imaginations bringing pages alive with some funny, cute or familiar characters. Here you will find the latest childrens books along with my personal favourites

Adult Colouring Books

Ah now these are a real delight to do! Creating images and watching them come alive on the page is so much fun because really anything goes! Colouring is very soothing for the soul and is a great excuse to become a child again by adding colours to your world!

Journals & Diaries

Journals are great! They have become my memory on many occassions and make great gift ideas. I often mix up the journals with colouring so that you can enjoy both, do a little colouring and write your special notes. Best of both worlds if you ask me!

Short Stories

Sometimes it is just great to escape the world for a little while and it is for this reason that I have written short stories. Some are contemporary romance some are more adventure almost science fiction/fantasy as I use my imagination to entwine you into a different world!

Many titles have been published this year


It has been a very exciting year this year with so many new releases!
In the childrens range we have Alien Capers with a series of 4 colourful books in A5 size perfect to post! Then a very create range of Playtime Books – these books have a huge amount of offer the child with a story followed by colouring in pages then a game that can be played by themselves! Not only that but there is a section of questions for the child to go back and discover and free certificates to download!

For the Adults the fun has not been forgotten with the new series of Adult colouring books designed to give you hours and hours of relaxing self absorbing fun! Remember when you used to colour as a child? Why did you stop? You had fun and now you can have fun again with our series of Adult Colouring Books.Journals and Diaries are all very useful and these are new too this year! On most of them you can colour in images and write giving you the best of both worlds (well I think so anyway!)
Lastly we have the short stories with most of them in a series (and next year will be sold as box sets if you want to save money!). All of these are short stories because we live such busy lives and don’t have time to sit and read 400 or so pages!

Adult Colouring Book Reviews

5 stars – Lovely pictures, good value

5 stars – Very fine lines in places, but very addictive, once you start you just cannot put it down.

5 stars – Very pretty, delicate book for adult colourers

5 stars – True happy endings that make you feel empathetic happiness. A good book to read if u want to feel happy at the end of reading it. I like it because the stories are true memoirs of people overcoming struggle and hardships onto greater things. I especially liked “when life depends on it” by Sue Messruther. The way it was written makes you want to keep turning the page. You feel so sorry for her yet she doesn’t write for pity it’s an amazing short story that makes you want to read more. You also learn that life is all about attitude she started with nothing and had the right attitude to work her way to where she is now. Such a worthwhile story:)

Children Book Reviews

4 stars – The lovely cover gives an example of the collection of beautiful images that have been used in this book. Your children will love them, and the adventures of Santa, as he tries different, fun ways to make sure everyone receives their presents.

5 stars – Sock Seekers is a fun and engaging story that FINALLY tells you the secret of where all those missing socks are. It is filled with fabulous illustrations and read-along rhyming verse. The kids giggled throughout and immediately did a sock check to make sure none of theirs had gone missing. Fun for both kids and parents!!

4 stars – The puppy pictures along with what they might be saying in each picture was absolutely adorable! The images were crisp and clear and a great size. A very enjoyable book that will make any dog lover smile and look forward to the next page.

Short Stories Book Reviews

5 stars – This “G-rated” romantic short story is a sweet, touching tale of Christmas-time joys and sorrows. It moves at just the right pace to keep the reader engaged and wanting to see how it ends, yet not wanting it to end! Definitely worth the read!

5 stars – Well, it’s a delightful little romance to brighten a dull winter’s evening, a quick but satisfying read, and a reminder that no matter how bad things may appear, you just never know when your luck will turn.

5 stars – I work quite hard, hardly have breaks as I am setting up my business from home. This provided just what I needed to unwind just before going to bed. It could easily be read on a lunch break, I read it instead in hot Southern Spain, when I needed to relax. I hope the author continues with the character. Can’t wait for more.

Meet The Author

oscar-6-weeksSue Messruther

This is oscar at 6 weeks, he is my loyal and most admiring fan!
He is by my side when ever I am around which is lovely as I adore him.

He was so tiny at 6 weeks when we got him but boy did he soon grow!
Have you ever seen that movie Digiby?
Well I feared that was exactly what I had ha ha ha.

Much to my relief he has finally stopped growing now that he is 3 years old and he is as gorgeous as ever, the only difference is he now takes up the whole bed and he doesn’t fit in my lap anymore!


Back to the books!

With each book I ask my beautiful daughter (my baby and number 6!) to cast her eye over my covers, images and stories because I value her opion so much and know that she is the generation most of my books may appeal to!

This photo is one of my favourites and a typical type of photo that she takes with me always cutting her face off and at an angle, like her it makes it look interesting 🙂

A lot of my writing is done while I holiday in France and then the editing and images are done back here in the UK which is where I am now living! Of course Oscar travells with us all the time and yes I do read my stories out loud to him while he sits and looks at me! Is he really listening? Who knows but is fun to do!

Just of late I have been doing some drawings with the elderly as I look after a lot of them as part of my job and I found they really enjoyed it and each week would look forward to doing more with me. Eventually I decided to do a book then another and another and well yes you guessed they are breeding as I do more and more all the time!

They are a lot of fun to do and even more fun to colour, oh and I so love it when readers share their masterpieces with me on facebook!

In fact I asked one reader if I could use her creations in my new video – she said yes! So look out for my new video!
