Susie Kelly


Born a Londoner, Susie Kelly spent most of the first 25 years of her life in Kenya. She now lives in south-west France with her husband and assorted animals.

She believes that her explosive temper is a legacy from her Irish-American grandfather, but has no idea who to blame for her incompetence as a housewife. Still, she’s very kind to animals, small children and elderly people.

Susie particularly enjoys exploring the road less travelled, discovering the lives and events of lesser-known places.

Smashwords book reviews by Susie Kelly

  • The Princess & the Penis on March 25, 2011

    Very funny, a charming little story. Adult humour without being pornographic. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
  • Cuisine Végétarienne on March 25, 2011

    It is SO nice to find a French vegetarian cookbook, because, let's face it, France isn't exactly a vegetarian's paradise. Although you might be lucky when eating out, more often than not the "vegetarian option" will be a plate of dull pasta, or even worse, an omelette, served with a sneer. This book is filled with really appetising recipes that are easy to cook, and inexpensive. Chapeau!
  • Get Off the Couch with Joan on Jan. 10, 2013

    What a remarkable woman! I thought that rambling 500 or so miles on my own, with a backpack, over unknown territory was an achievement. However, Joan Young makes me look like a softy! She hiked 4,395 miles over the North Country National Scenic Trail – despite claiming to have pudgy knees and flabby thigh tops. She was plagued with mosquitoes – we share common ground there – and we both lugged nice light little tents that were too small to sit up in. And if you are stuck in a tent for 12 hours, not being able to sit up is a considerable handicap. Joan endured sub-zero nights, hiked through snow for days, and faced encounters with bears and moose, not to mention all manner of biting, stinging and gnawing insect life I very much enjoyed following her journey which is well written, filled with zest, positivity and lovely descriptive passages. Most particularly, I enjoyed it from the warm comfort of my chair. Hats off to Joan and her legs for getting up off the coach and getting out to enjoy the wonders of nature. A lovely and inspirational read.
