Who is Sue-Ellen Bailey?


“I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, born on the Cape Flats. At a young age I always use to write and create Fantasy stories that I shared with my family. Creating short scripts that I use to call One Act Surprise and playing different characters was an escape from a young age of the reality that was surrounding myself and my family.
Growing up during Apartheid was a struggle but having such wonder inspirational parents that kept motivating me to create, kept reading and writing.
The Journey of the Forgotten Kahul, I wrote inspired by family, life, love, nature and so much more.
I’m excited to share my “Journey” and many more books to come.”


 I asked the Author what her Vision is for aspiring writers in South Africa and indeed the ‘Global Village’

Author’s Vision


As a Self-Publish Author it is wise to think about the goals you want to reach.

There might be many obstacles in your way as a Self-Published Author but for myself coming from the Cape-Flats I was filled with determination to make my Fantasy Book available locally and Internationally in bookstores and online.

The partway from a manuscript to Self-Publishing was already a step towards an achievement but the obstacles that I had to faced as a person of colour and as a female made me more determined to get my book into local bookstores namely Exclusive Books and Bargain Books SA.

I feel we all have the ability to tell stories and we have our own stories to share but the lack of opportunity I had to face nonetheless I had ambition and will power.

I created my own strategy transforming my vision into steps to reach my goal.

I believe in Dreaming Big! Don’t believe in the impossible because by creating your own unique story you as the Storyteller become a Writer and then the Author is born, now that’s possible however only by believing in yourself.

Within the story you write find the destination you strive towards and you will make it a success.

Dreams you can turn into reality with hard work and determination.
