About Susan

I’m a full-time writer who has written three books on different aspects of the history of Ipswich, plus a biography of the Stoke City and England footballer, Frank Soo. I’ve also written for many publications, including journals, magazines, fanzines and websites about football, the history of popular culture, and social history in general.

I’m particularly interested in writing about people who have been excluded or marginalised from history: the poor, the dispossessed, women, people from sexual, ethnic and religious minorities. Some short pieces are here: thosewhowillnotbedrowned.wordpress.com
