About Me

Hi, I’m Susan (aka Glasgow Dragonfly). Previously a full time mum and blogger, I became a published author in July 2020. This blog was born in 2013 when I was living in Glasgow, Scotland, and has remained a safe place for me to journal, vent, write short stories and most recently VLOG! I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you! x
