Susan M B Preston has won Finalist Awards from Readers’ Favorite and from the Independent Author Network and a Solo Medalist in Religion and Spirituality, Apple Book Awards.
Now a widow, and on home oxygen therapy 24/7 Preston’s main interest is her writing, and Skyping with friends and family.
Having suffered the loss, of a husband and a teenager, brings an element of understanding of the emotions of the characters in her books.
Born in a historical town in the Scottish borders it is hardly a surprise to discover that history has always fascinated Preston. Living in Perth, Western Australia could hardly be more different. The climate in Perth is as hot as her home town was cold and the variety of insect life, including large spiders is one of the least-liked aspects of life in Australia. She does like the fact she can hang out her washing and have it dry within an hour.
Although she has written other types of books in the past, The Apostle John series of books is Preston’s first foray into the world of Christian, historical fiction. They have been followed by four 'companion' novellas.
