ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Susan Schoeffield was previously Managing Editor of The Poetry Hut, a quarterly, online poetry magazine and Administrator of two poetry prompt blogs. Other obligations made it impossible to continue in all of those roles and The Poetry Hut and related projects were discontinued. Prior to her detour down other, creative avenues, Susan published her first novel, Tarnished Idols, A Silver Screen Murder Mystery, and her first collection of poetry, A Walk and Imagine, both available at Smashwords. She has dabbled in website building and podcasting, but her heart has never forgotten her one, true passion: the art of words. With the publication of Haiku Harbor, Susan has returned to her favorite place, the computer keyboard, to continue projects that had been put on the back burner for way too long: the compilation of her second poetry collection, And Autumn Remembers, the second novel in the Silver Screen Murder Mystery series, Reel Madness, and her first children’s book, The Basset Goes To Boston. Also in the works is the first book in a new series called, Distilled Demons, A Speakeasy Mystery. She is thrilled to be back where she belongs. Nothing is more rewarding than lighting the fire that drives the soul.


Susan’s new, personal website is called "Susan Writes Left" (bit.ly/mOV49Z). If you would like to reach her, you can send an email to her at susanwritesleft@gmail.com. After a prolonged absence, she has also returned to tweeting on Twitter @SusanWritesLeft.

    Fun Mystery

    A fairly quick, fun mystery. Well-written, not too predictable. I'm very good at working out whodunnits and it was only closer to the end of this one that I was certain who the culprit was. The few grammatical errors were surprisingly stupid given how well done the rest if the book was. I would certainly read another book by this author.

    Crazy Font

    Currently trying to read this book but the font changes in every paragraph! Usually typos dont bother me but there are so many just in the first few chapters. Between the font changes and the typos I dont think i can get through this one.

    This was a book that was written with flash backs that sometimes was hard to follow from the original story. The story was good with a surprise ending. At least it was a full book and not a book with less than 100 pages.

    Highly recommend-loved it!

    This book will appeal to mystery lovers and fans of the Golden age of Hollywood. It has everything from ghosts to scandals, as well as a surprise ending. I loved the way the author wove flashbacks in to reveal the mystery behind the death of movie star, Jennifer Deane. Was it suicide or murder?

    Long winded

    Free book - so there's a plus. Otherwise, nothing great. Really could have edited better and omitted minimum of 50 pages as it didn't add to the plot or character development. And honestly, his stomach churned - yet again and again and again.
