For more than twenty years, Sue Cook was one of the UK's best known broadcasters. TV viewers will remember her for BBC shows such as Crimewatch UK, the annual Children in Need appeal and Holiday, and for the Channel 4 series Collectors' Lot. To radio listeners she was a familiar voice on many series and individual programmes, including You and Yours and, more recently, Making History for Radio 4.

She is now a novelist and public speaker. She keeps her hand in as broadcaster from time to time, having devised a series of podcasts entitled The Write Lines, aiming to offer support and advice to writers from blank page to book shelf and beyond.

Sue is also a ChipLitFest patron.
