Authors Susan Pape and Sue Featherstone

Welcome to the Book Lovers’ Book List.

We chose the name because we love books and everything to do with them.

Here we’ll be listing, reviewing and sharing some of our favourite reads with you as well as introducing you to some new titles we hope you’ll enjoy.

And, as former journalists who between us have extensive experience of working on national and regional papers and magazines, and in public relations, we’ll also be passing on some of the things we’ve learned after a lifetime as professional writers.

More recently we’ve worked in higher education, teaching journalism to undergraduate and postgraduate students – Susan at Leeds Trinity and Sue at Sheffield Hallam.

We’ve been friends for 25 years and have already written two successful journalism text books together:

  • Newspaper Journalism: A Practical Introduction
  • Feature Writing: A Practical Introduction

Our first novel A Falling Friend was published in Spring 2016 by Lakewater Press. We are currently working on a sequel. (See Our Books for more …)
