A story of kindness and joy


‘One of the kindest people I have ever met – a beautiful dancer and a beautiful person’ Kevin Clifton

‘Be good, be kind, be more like Susan Calman’ Kirstie Allsopp

‘Be kind to yourself – read this book, keep it on your bedside table or on your Kindle – even Kindle has the word kind in it’ Sandi Toksvig

‘Full of wisdom and humour, with the soft underbelly of the profound’ Fi Glover

‘Warm, funny and delightful’ Woman & Home

In 2017 Susan Calman danced her way into our hearts on Strictly Come DancingHer enthusiasm and absolute joy at being part of the show and learning to dance, brought sunshine into 11M homes every Saturday night.  Buoyed by the mental upgrade Susan wrote about in Cheer Up Love, she pushed herself  out of her comfort zone and found it genuinely life-changing (and for the better!).  In a world which is increasingly shouty and unreasonable, and sometimes frightening, making joyful connections with people might just be the answer.

Well, it’s a start.

‘Sunny Side Up is about two of the best things in the world.  Kindness and joy. 

And I, possibly the grumpiest woman in the world am going to try and tell you why you need

more of them in your life…’   

In her trademark observational and honest personal style which won so many fans with her first book, Susan will try and make the world a better place …

‘…Because I don’t know about you, but I love a challenge.’
