Full Author Details…
Greetings, if you want to know about Susan M B Preston – read on! Listed here is her background. In the ‘Press’ section you will find less formal bios.
Susan is the author of the Apostle John series, of which several have won awards. She has also published a companion series of novellas. These complete the stories of the members of ‘Old Simon’s’ family. You will find them in the ‘Novella’ section.
This series brings early Christianity to life. None of the books in the series ‘preach’, instead they use mainly fictional characters to ‘bring these early Christians to life’ as people, not stories in a ‘dusty’ Bible or vaguely remembered from Sunday school.
Although Susan started writing in primary school, it was in the early 1980s that Susan became involved in Children’s Ministry and combined the two interests.
