About the Author:
Susan Duxbury-Neumann was born in Baildon, a small moorland town on the outskirts of Bradford, West Yorkshire. Her father was a woolsorter and 'knew all there is to know about wool' as did the rest of her family, all of whom worked in the wool trade. Susan was educated at Salt’s Grammar School in the model village of Saltaire, and later, at Leeds College of Technology where she gained a diploma in Hotel Management. She met her German husband in Australia and after four years of living and working in the Australian outback, they returned to Germany where she still lives.
