Product Details

About the Author: Susie Kelly was born in grey post-war London, and spent much of her childhood and young adulthood in the beautiful country of Kenya.
She now lives in south-west France with a menagerie of assorted animals, and is passionate about animal welfare.
Her first book “Best Foot Forward” was published by Transworld Publishers in 2003, followed by “Two Steps Backward” in 2004, and “A Perfect Circle” in 2006.
Since 2011 Susie’s books have been published by Blackbird Digital Books, whose theme is strong, adventurous women living life to the full. Blackbird Digital Book people love birds and animals, travel, history, romance, natural health and environment, resourcefulness, humour, the surreal and magic.
If her house caught fire and she could only save three things (apart from her animals, of course), they would be courage, compassion and a sense of humour.

 

As the cover says, this book is a sampler of some of Susie Kelly’s amazing books.

The chapters titled Travels with Tinkerbelle and Best Foot Forward will entertain you as you learn about her adventures in a campervan, and on foot as she discovers different areas in France. In true Susie style, you find yourself experiencing her trials and tribulations, on these epic journeys. France as you will never have read about it before.

Perhaps you are interested in history and would like read about the last few days of Marie Antoinette and Louix XVI as they desperately tried to escape the revolution, and visit, many years on, with Susie, places on their journey.

Do you fancy running a gite in France? Do you wonder why people do it, and what it is really like, you can read about Susie’s  experiences in the chapter titled Swallows & Robins.

And for those who love a little glimpse into  other peoples lives, learn a little about Susie’s childhood and life in the U.K. and Kenya, in I Wish I Could Say I Was Sorry…

Entertaining is an understatement! Susie’s honest, direct, and very funny style of writing will captivate you, as you read these samples. I hope you enjoy them, and become, like me, totally hooked on all her books.

Available in paperback and Kindle format.

Thoroughly enjoyable!

Living in France, I couldn’t resist this book, and through Susie’s wonderful narration I was transported into her shoes for her epic journey. Laughing and crying with her, whilst enjoying her discoveries and adventures as she walked across France from La Rochelle to Lake Geneva.

Sometimes visiting hidden places few of us will be lucky enough to go and meeting real characters and challenges on the way.

France and history combined.

One of my favourite authors has got to be Susie Kelly.

I fell in love with France on my first visit, a school trip to Paris, aged 14 and the love holds fast to this day.

When Susie Kelly released The Valley Of Heaven And Hell – Cycling In The Shadow Of Marie Antoinette I knew I would enjoy it because I have always been very interested in this period of French history.

Available in Paperback and Kindle format

Susie and her husband’s adventures on this epic cycle ride had me captivated, from their start at Versailles, the horrors of cycling in Paris to her descriptions of the places she visited and the histories behind them as they followed the final journey of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI.

I learnt so much about a part of France I have never visited, the bravery of the French resistance during the wars and the Champagne houses.  I have visited Paris a couple of times since that first school trip but I have an overwhelming urge to go back again and look at some of the places I have missed, armed with more knowledge.

My daughter and I visited the Palace of Versailles this summer and found it absolutely breathtaking, truely spectacular and it was definately the most amazing palace I have ever seen, hopefully soon I will get to Paris again and then perhaps some of those other wonderful places Susie visited.

Yet another great book from one of my favourite authors.

I Wish I Could Say I Was Sorry by Susie Kelly

Open, honest, and compelling reading.

 

  I Wish I Could Say I Was Sorry...

 

Books are escapism, and Susie Kelly’s books about her adventures and life in France have kept me entertained over the years.

I knew this book was going to be different, but nothing prepared me for its content.

When you see an author’s picture, and have followed her escapades, somehow you feel in a way, you know her. This book dispels that illusion. The title is easily understandable, everyone regrets not having the chance to say things, or leaving it too late…

What a story! Written in Susie’s extremely honest way, but unlike her other books, in this one, we learn of her childhood in England and Kenya, her life choices and the decisions she has had to make.

An open, heart-rending insight into her life, which I found a compelling read.

I have always been a firm fan of Susie Kelly, who has written many humorous books, about her life, adventures and travels in France. She gives her readers the opportunity to discover what it is really like to live in France and learn about its history.

Her unique ability to portrayal the characters she meets, and the situations she finds herself in, make you either want to laugh or cry.

This is a fantastic opportunity to sample four chapters from some of her books, and discover for yourself this wonderful author.
