My name is Suzanne Lambert. I am an author with Penguin Random House and live in North Shields, Newcastle upon Tyne.
I have published three books with Penguin, recently finished a fourth and am now working on my next project.
I enjoy giving talks around the North East, sharing hints and tips about the writing process. My real passion is to help motivate, inspire and encourage you to believe in your storytelling. When I see the light go on in someone’s eyes saying, ‘maybe I can do this,’ I am beyond thrilled.
There are so many people out there with wonderful stories to tell who have no idea how to start or get creative. I was fortunate to work with some amazing people who helped and encouraged me. Now I would like to share that knowledge with you.
Writing my life story was more emotional, joyful, heart-breaking and exciting than I could ever have believed possible. It is an amazing experience and I will do all I can to help you.
The Universe is waiting, the world and all its glory
Is ready now and waiting, for you to tell your story
