The former journalist and TV producer, originally from Halesowen, began her writing career with a period of work experience at the Express & Star in Wolverhampton.

She has now signed a two-book deal with One More Chapter and will release her first book, titled ‘Shake It Up, Beverley’, in April.

It tells the story of a Beatles-mad single mother in her 50s who gets herself into trouble when she tries to meet people on the internet.

Lonely Bev in Liverpool wants to find someone to hold her hand but ends up shouting “Help!” when she finds herself making headlines instead.

Suzan drew on her years of experience as a reporter and executive producer on “Loose Women” to set up this modern love story in which she added her own love for music.

She said: “Music is something that connects people and can instantly transport them to a particular place or time.

“For Beverley, in the book, it’s all about The Beatles, she grew up with their music and it comforts her in difficult times like nothing else can.

“The question is, will she ever find a man to love as much as she loves Paul McCartney?”

The book is adapted from Suzan’s original play, Shake It Up, Baby, which was performed across the UK and was due for a major theatrical tour before the pandemic.

It was released digitally in January and is due out as an audiobook in March and a paperback in April, both of which are available for pre-order. here.

Suzan’s second book, “Rock ‘n’ Rose,” set at Graceland, Elvis Presley’s home in Memphis, is slated for release later this year.
