Sue Lilley loves getting lost in a page-turning story and can never put a good book down. When she isn’t escaping somewhere else in her imagination, she lives in the north east of England, near the stunning Northumberland coastline and the famous Alnwick Castle, last seen in Downton Abbey and the Harry Potter movies.
Her practical exterior hides the soul of a daydreamer and compulsive people watcher. She’s often found eavesdropping on people's conversations on the Metro for inspiration. She’s been married to Michael, an artist and fellow creative spirit, for more years than they’re brave enough to count.
Described as an exciting new voice in Women’s Fiction, Sue’s first novel, Another Summer was called “an alluring example of its genre” by BookViral. Her second novel, High Hopes was described by OnlineBookClub.org as “a story that holds immense appeal for readers who like plots containing sizzling love triangles.”
I read it twice. That's how much I enjoyed it. Painting Rainbows is a short story but don't be deceived by it. It packs a very interesting storyline, a sweet and sensual romance, and an intricate plot that slowly unravels with an ending that will leave you feeling astounded. I like every aspect of how the author wrote the story. The characters were portrayed with great chemistry you'll be immediately drawn to them and root for them all the way. Quite simply, an amazing story… Reading Alley
