Sue Hall has mixed journalism and research with storytelling since giving up the grind of a ‘proper job.’ Graduating with a History B.A. Hons from Warwick University, she went on to study law at Birmingham University. 

Having been raised in a cult, fitting into a legal mindset was often challenging. Sue worked at IBM, Ecosaurus, the Crown Prosecution Service and the Community Development Foundation, latterly managing International projects. She also worked as a Consultant with Voluntary Services Overseas. 

She spent lockdown happily growing tomatoes and polishing her chosen craft – writing. Sue writes for environmental magazines, mostly interviews and blogs about life in Portugal, from books, growing vegetables to history. 

Sue is married to Jim Hall who plays tennis and turns the compost heap. Sue and Jim moved to Portugal permanently in 2008. They live on a hill overlooking the Asseca Valley, about 8 kilometres from Tavira in the deep south of Portugal.

She has recently finished writing a novel called ‘Return Visit’ to be published in 2024. The novel explores high control and healing through the life of a music loving widow.

Sue injects colour, discord, recovery and pockets of joy into her writing.
