Sue Dean is a great grandmother and works full time as the owner/director of a small music publishing company. She has been filling notebooks with short stories since the age of eight but life, children and work meant that until very recently it was no more than a self indulgent hobby. An MA in creative writing provided a reason to write with more purpose and the confidence to enter writing competitions. In the last year three short stories have been published: The Red Geranium, Suenos, and Merlin. The stories she writes are usually about women and more particularly the women who generally remain invisible.
