Give a big hello to Suzannah from Vintage Novels!
Tell us a bit about yourself.
When I’m not travelling the world to help out friends in need, I live in a big house in rural Australia with
my awesome parents and siblings, trying to beat my previous number-of-books-read-in-a-year record. I
blog the results at Vintage Novels and am a self-published author of fiction and non-fiction, including Pendragon’s Heir, an epic new take on Arthurian legend, and The Rakshasa’s Bride, a novella retelling Beauty and the Beast in Bollywood India (huge fun).
How did you end up here in the world of book blogging?
I realised two things. One, I was giving all the same book recommendations to all my friends—and I reckoned it’d just be easier to start a blog and point them in that direction! Two, I’ve always loved vintage fiction which it seemed no one else was into—while my friends were reading Harry Potter and Robin McKinley, I was reading RL Stevenson and John Buchan. No one seemed to be reading or discussing potboilers of the past—but those were the books I wanted to talk about and geek out over with my friends. So, I started a blog!
