Suzsi Mandeville

Suzsi has been writing for more than 20 years and has published many short stories, poems and some plays.  She is now a full time writer. 'Escape from The Valley of the Kings' was her first novel, followed by 'The King's Company' and 'The King's Island Prison'.

The novels follow the adventures of teenager Tiffany Davis when she travels to the past via the time-travel portal that occasionally opens at the bottom of her grandmother's Travel Bag. If you've ever wondered how a modern teenager would cope with living in the past, here's your chance to find out. Tiffany travels to the Valley of the Kings to help Howard Carter find the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. Then to London, 1666, where she works in the theatre with Nell Gwynn and they discover a plot to overthrow King Charles II. In book 3, Tiffany travels to Tasmania, and treks across the island in the company of Lady Jane Franklin and Truganini as they try and prove the innocence of Willem, a convict sentenced to hang for a murder he didn't commit.
