Susan Tickner


Susan Tickner was born in Cheltenham. At the age of three she was fostered out to several institutions in the UK. Then finally at the age of nine, she was sent to Australia as a child migrant.
Writing her life story Goodbye, Mummy Darling has given Susan the therapy she needed, and although sadness has dominated her life, bitterness does not. Her four children will always be her rock.
Since the recent death of her beloved husband, Susan spends most of her spare time writing poetry and walking her Jack Russell dogs, Holly and Jessie.
