Inside Story with Lucinda

with Sue Teddern Author of The Pre-Loved Club

24 November 2022

Sue Teddern's second novel, The Pre-Loved Club, is set in Brighton and tells the story of two single parents, Ned and Gemma, both trying to move on with their lives, after rejection by their exes. They don't hit it off straight away but soon see that it's helpful to have a friend who is also trying to rebuild confidence and embark on new relationships, though not always successfully.


Sue is a former window dresser, feature writer, scriptwriter and lecturer. Her debut novel, Annie Stanley All At Sea, was published in 2021, about a woman taking her father’s ashes on a tour of the Shipping Forecast’s sea areas. Sue came on to Goldster to talk about Annie Stanley, and members loved her, so we’ve invited her back again. 

Her background as a comedy writer (Birds of a Feather for TV, Cooking in a Bedsitter for radio) has imbued her novels with humour and wry observations. She likes to write about real people living through real experiences. Sue will be chatting to Lucinda Hawksley on 24 November. Come along and join them!
