Susannah Lloyd is a children's author whose books feature a duplicitous cat, a dastardly fox, a mansplaining knight and a damsel who saves the day. And cake. A good amount of cake.
Susannah embarked on an ambitious murder mystery series age 10. Following volume one, she took a thirty-year hiatus from writing. She is pleased to be making up for lost time.
Here Be Dragons is a book about a mansplaining knight determined to find a dragon. Thankfully, a damsel is on hand... Illustrated by Paddy Donnelly, Here Be Dragons comes out in North America in 2023.
Also published by Frances Lincoln This Book Can Read Your Mind. An interactive book full of silliness, stylishly illustrated by Jacob Grant.
The Terribly Friendly Fox is another tale of duplicity and pudding, illustrated by Ellie Snowdon and published by Simon & Schuster.
Susannah's favourite words are 'in cahoots' and 'hullabaloo'. The picture book sections in libraries and bookshops are her happy place.
Susannah Lloyd lives in Yorkshire, where she spends as much time as possible reading to her sons.
