Susan Frances Edwards


I was born in the city of York, and moved to Lorton in the Lake District when I was eight, spending my formative childhood years in one of the most beautiful places in the world. It's still my heart's home.
As a child I was read to by my parents and grew up loving books, especially those with rich and well-used language, as well as delighting in the natural world. These are now two of the most important aspects of who I am, along with a love for music, good food and company, a lively curiosity and a sense of humour.
I'm a member of The Whitehaven Writers, the Tolkien Society,the West Cumbria branch of the U3A, and am active in the Parish of Whitehaven. When the weather permits, I go out to the Solway coast or the Lake District with my camera in hand, and often get odd looks from walkers when I'm down on my knees taking a picture of moss or lichen or fungi. You can see some of my pictures and the writing they've inspired in my blog at -
I've lived and worked in many places around England as well as teaching for six years in Tanzania. I've been a Library Assistant, a Primary teacher, a Cub Scout Leader, An Anglican Parish Worker, a novice Franciscan Sister, and finally a self-employed Home Tutor. But after all that I've retired and settled back in Cumbria, in the Georgian port town of Whitehaven, and am very happy to be almost within sight and sound of 'home'.
