Interview with Suzanne Hemming - Author of Award Winning Book "She's Not Good for a Girl, She's Just Good!"

April Prendergast

Suzanne Hemming was a stay at home mum to her daughter, Thea, when she put pen to paper, and began to write rhyming children’s stories.  Reading to Thea is something Suzanne and her husband, Richard, have done since since Thea was tiny, but she (Suzanne not Thea!) was becoming increasingly fed up of books about pink princesses, who waited for the prince to whisk them away.

In searching for inspiring and empowering books for girls, and (with the exception of a few amazing authors) after discovering there are limited choices, she decided to start writing.  The idea to self-publish one of her stories, and set up a publishing company, led to Thea Chops Books, and the start of a new career as author and publisher.

We are huge fans of her first book "She's Not Good For a Girl, She's Just Good!" so were delighted when she agreed to do an interview with us so that we could find out ore about her and Thea Chops Books.
