Ever since I could read I have wanted to write even more than just To Do lists but, although I felt quite competent and even a little on the fluent side I hadn’t got anything to say! However a couple of years ago I “retired” (perhaps) very suddenly when a job turned out to be unsuitable and, being poor and at a loose end thought I had nothing to lose trying my hand at writing for a living.
It went reasonably well and I have had several articles published in Vegetarian Living Magazine, have written for Mensa and do a weekly-ish article for CCN (no, not CNN - Cornwall Community News).
I have published an ebook; Lush Ice Cream without a Machine and my 'real book, 'The Leftovers Handbook' has just been published (April 2013).
For lots more details of my writing please see my other blog here - Suzy Bowler, food writer.
