As an aspiring author of romance novels and childrens' stories, Susan Longmore is a dedicated local writer. From a very young age Susan dreamed of writing but it wasn't until she won a short composition contest hosted by Daniel Goddard - Cane on Young and the Restless - that she tried her hand at writing her first romance novel, 'Bring Me Home’ in 2011.
Susan finds inspiration in real life conversations or ideas of things she wants say. A romantic at heart, Susan believes romance stories are good for your soul and children’s stories should contain fun and meaningful lessons.
Her childrens' book 'Rhys and the Stallion Called Bella' is available for purchase from the gift shop at the Galloway Station Museum.
Susan's advice to new writers: "If you have a dream and wish to write, don’t give up. Write and write some more."
