Introducing Sue Hampton, author and ambassador for Alopecia UK

ALOPECIA UK are delighted to announce children’s author Sue Hampton as an ambassador for the charity. Sue has lived with alopecia totalis for over thirty years. She has written 18 novels for 6 – 16 plus including one book in particular, ‘The Waterhouse Girl’, which draws on her own experiences with alopecia. The book has been praised by world famous author Michael Morpurgo (author of ‘War Horse’) saying it was “beautifully written”.
Sue's aim is to inspire young people to both read and write. To do this she not only writes but also visits schools to run writing workshops and has already visited over 300 schools. As an ex-teacher (once nominated Teacher of the Year!) she adapts her workshops to the requirements of different schools, which even involves tailoring them to help young people in school with alopecia
