A scale model Sunderland, a furry tiger and a sepia photo were just some of the props used to make the trailer for The Bother in Burmeon. Watch the film to see where a little imagination can take you.  S P Moss regularly visits schools and bookshops - see The Bother in Burmeon's Facebook page  for the latest news.


                   Beasts, baddies and bombs!

With more than a nod to the great adventure classics of the last century, The Bother in Burmeon is the story of a boy who is whisked back to 1962 to join his grandfather, a pilot, on a mission in an exotic South-East Asian setting. Whether he is piloting a flying boat, pitting his wits against a mad would-be dictator, detonating a makeshift bomb or rescuing a captive tiger, all that Billy does is for real – the TV and the computer games have been left behind in the 21st century.

About the author

This original adventure story, which manages to be enchanting and exciting at the same time, was the winner of the Earlyworks Press Novels for Children or Teens Competition. Author Susan Imgrund (aka S P Moss) won herself a £100 advance and a publishing contract with Circaidy Gregory. The cover illustration was commissioned from Joy Chan, and the book was launched at Brooklands Motor Museum on 11th April 2012. Susan says:

"The 13th will never be unlucky for me again: it was on this date that the email arrived with the fantastic news that my story had won the Earlyworks Fiction for Children or Teens competition. I was over the moon, particularly considering the experience of the judges and the quality of the entries overall. I  followed my intuition and took the prize offering a small press publishing contract. It’ll be an adventure for me, too, but it’s brilliant to have the support of people who believe in my story as much as I do."

Flying and travel are in Susan Moss’s blood – she visited four of the world’s continents before starting school. She read avidly and wrote determinedly in between plotting to become a spy and building brother-proof camps.

She studied Psychology at Trinity College, Cambridge, taking part in some interesting experiments in parapsychology as well as playing trumpet in a Big Band.

A chance meeting in an Austrian ski hut resulted in more travel – this time to Germany, where she now lives in a small town outside Frankfurt with her husband and son.

She still makes use of her trumpet-playing, spying and camp-building skills in her busy life as an author, mother and freelance marketing consultant.

The Bother in Burmeon was her first published novel but there's more in the pipeline. Keep an eye on this page, or the Burmeon website, for developments...
