Perhaps I Should Introduce Myself...
Welcome to my blog!
Please come in. Take a look around. There’s not a great deal to see at the moment but that will change. Oh yes, I have big plans. I’m going to fill this blog with lots of things I hope children will like. I want to share my stories: some excerpts, some complete ones, even some in the process of being written. And I have lots of associated things I want to post about too.
But first, just in case you don't already know me, perhaps I should introduce myself.
I’m Sue Elvis. And I’m a Catholic author and blogger. I'm also Australian.
Yes, I live in a village somewhere south of Sydney. This village is surrounded by the beautiful Australian bush. When I look out over our backyard fence, all I can see is the bush. So what is 'the bush'? It's native forest. There are gum trees and wattles and all kinds of native plants. Kangaroos and koalas and echidnas and other Australian creatures live there. There are trails where we can walk and run. It's my favourite place in the whole world. And it's just like Abbey Creek where my fictional Angel family lives.
I have a family too. I live in my house on the edge of the bush with my husband, Andy. We have eight children though only 5 of them still live at home.
We have three cats: Poppy, Sammy and Jenny, and one dog called Nora. Do you like her name? She came with it. We got her from the animal shelter.
What do I like doing when I'm not writing or blogging? I love taking photos and running through the bush.
So that's a few facts about me. I'm sure to tell you more as I'm writing my posts.
What shall I write about next? Would you like to hear more about how I came to write my very first story? Yes, I shall tell you about that next time!

I'd like to tell you about the things I mention in my stories such as lorikeets and kookaburras, First Holy Communion dresses and Mother's Day flowers, our beautiful Australian bush and perfect beach holidays.
By doing this, I'll be sharing the world of my fictional characters. It's a lot like my world so I'll be telling some family stories along the way!
