Porthole Presents – How I Became An Accidental Author – Talk
March 24 @ 3:00 pm-4:00 pm
Sue Medcalf – That is how I became an Accidental Author’ – Talk
`The more I learned about badgers the more interested I became!’
The series of books came from a conversation with her sister, who had badgers digging up her back garden. Sue did some research on their habitat and the story began from there.
“The name Itchybald Scratchet was a surprise, it
suddenly came to me when I was putting a plate in the
dishwasher! I think it was sent to me to make people
smile, it’s certainly memorable!”
After putting pen to paper I have found the experience to be rewarding and it has enhanced my interest in wildlife. I hope that the books will inspire and encourage children and adults alike to enjoy and learn from reading my books.
I moved to Somerset 20 years ago and love the surroundings and wildlife here. Learning about badgers and their lifestyle has been motivational for my writing and has lead to a greater understanding of our wildlife in general and the environment around us.
