Biography: For more than twenty years, Sue Cook has been one of the UK's most experienced and popular broadcasters. She is now also a full-time novelist and writer.

TV viewers know her for shows such as Nationwide, BBC Breakfast, Crimewatch, the annual Children in Need appeal, Holiday and Collectors' Lot. To radio listeners she's been a familiar voice for more than three decades presenting series such as You and Yours and Making History.

Sue wrote three non-fiction books during this time, but it wasn't until 2001 that she created the time to make a start on her first novel, fulfilling a lifelong ambition to be a novelist.

To date she has had two novels published and is working on her third. She is also working on a screenplay of her first novel, ON DANGEROUS GROUND, with her husband, film director Ian Sharp. They live in London and Oxfordshire.

Both FORCE OF NATURE and ON DANGEROUS GROUND will be available as eBooks in early 2014.
