Stephen Robert Sutton has been writing ever since he was a child, although he has dyslexia, he never let it beat him. In fact, it seemed to make him stronger and more determined to fight for what he wanted, which was to be an inspired author of fictitious books. Stephen has always had a vivid imagination, which he spent inventing characters and storylines about ghosts, witches, vampires and all kinds of strange creatures. He has a fear of mirrors which stemmed from watching Snow White and the seven dwarfs at an early age, seeing an animated face in an enchanted mirror. Stephen studied at Netherstowe comprehensive school the teachers there said he would never get anywhere and classed him as a dreamer. He classed himself as an ambitious dreamer with a set direction to go in, he was always drawing pictures that helped to describe the characters in his stories', this included cartoons in comic style formation. But it wasn't until Stephen went to University that he finally decided to write seriously and started the outline for cracked porcelain based on his own ward experience as a nurse, Ruth who was the main character in the story was a female version of himself, with a similar past. Since writing the series cracked porcelain Stephen has written many books under various names including Sarah Ruth Scott and Simon Robert Sinclair, his books include Blood Trail Across Time, For The Love of Charlotte, Understanding Jodie, The Harrington Curse and many more.
