Magical Stories Full of Mystery & Humour

Aliens and Angels: Three Stories For Christmas

The Author
Ex-teacher Sue Hampton now has nineteen published books for children and adults, one of which, TRACES, made the top three in The People’s Book Prize 2012. Her work across a range of genres has been praised by her hero, Michael Morpurgo: “terrific” “enthralling” and “beautifully written”. Sue has made over three hundred author visits to schools, aiming to inspire children and teenagers to read and write. She also addresses adult book groups, U3As and writers’ groups with her husband, poet and novelist Leslie Tate, and has guest-lectured to trainee teachers on the importance of using good writing in the classroom. With her alopecia and bare head, Sue also likes to share the message that it’s O.K. to be different.
