Sue Wickstead is a trained teacher and has written four children’s story books to date. The books have all received 5-star awards from ‘Readers Favourite’. She was initially involved in a playbus charity and left full time teaching to write the photographic history book about the playbus itself. This led to many questions from the children that she met asking what the playbus did and how was it different to any other ordinary bus. This led to telling stories and eventually the fictional tale was written. JJK261 was the real bus and gave the bus the name Jay-Jay. Sue has written three other adventures for Jay-Jay as well as a Spooky Tale for younger readers. Sue has visited many schools across Sussex and Surrey, both as a cover teacher as well as an author. The children love knowing where the inspiration for the stories come from and are fascinated to hear both the factual and fictional background to her writing. She would love to share her enthusiasm and become a patron in Sussex or Surrey.
