Welcome to my Wiki!
By way of introduction, a brief explanation of what you will find here.
You can see the work of a selection of work published by some UK Lulu users (including myself) at UK Lulu Wiki
I then started developing individual Wikis, each based around one of my books or proposed books. These are:
Victorian cookery and households hints
I have been visiting Greece regularly since 1981. I am working on at least two books about Greece (too many hobbies, too little time!). This Wiki contains a selection of my shorter writings about Greece, and photographs of Greece.
In 2011 I published Kalo Taxidi! Notes from Greece and the Greek Islands
Cats, Cats, Cats
This wiki contains photos I have taken of cats in Greece, other information about cats, andx links to my book of photos of Greek cats, and my Greek Calendars.
Cats, Cats, Cats
A selection of Greek cat photos. The photos are currently free to download. All I ask is that you consider making donation to a Greek animal charity. E.g. Naxos Animal Welfare Society; Animal Zone International
Victorian scraps and trivia
The Victorians were very fond of making scrapbooks, some containing images, others newspaper or magazine cuttings, and some containing a mixture of both. In And the Baboon Played Chess with the Emperor I have created a new scrapbook using extracts from old magazines etc.

If you enjoy the jokes in Christmas crackers, this is the wiki for you!
A selection of jokes about law and lawyers.
Silence in Court
Oscar the Labrador (a wiki I created to attract interest to book by a friend, Liv Worton)
Oscar the Labrador is the star of a charming little book by Liv Worton, a book full of anecdotes about a charismatic dog. There is an underlying theme of caring and sharing, whilst enjoying the simple pleasures of life.

In 2011 I also published
As Brisky as a Body Louse, a book about old phrase books. And yes, I did find the title phrase in an old phrase book!
Etymology - Word Wise
I am developing this Wiki and at present it is "private"! The Wiki will be based on around a series of articles I have been writing for over ten years, that I am at present developing into a book.
I am researching my family history, mostly in Lincolnshire, England. I often come across snippets of information of more general interest - this Wiki will be a repository for these snippets
Finally, coming almost full circle, I started developing this "Susan Watkin" Wiki to pull the various diverse threads of my interests together. Here you will find pages on diverse topics that have caught my interest.
