About the Author

Susan Klopfer and her husband, Fred, once lived on the grounds of Mississippi's Parchman Penitentiary where Fred was the state's chief of private prison psychologists. While there, Susan roamed the Delta, visiting older people who'd lived through the modern civil rights movement (1955 to 1968). She became intrigued with this era, after learning new stories surrounding the murders of Emmett Till, Medgar Evers and others who were key to bringing change in these turbulent years. She later wrote The Emmett Till Book, Who Killed Emmett Till? and Where Rebels Roost: Mississippi Civil Rights Revisited.
Susan also has worked as a journalist on daily newspapers in Texas, Missouri and Nevada, and as an acquisitions and development editor with Prentice Hall Computer Books. She won journalism awards for her investigative reporting on nondisclosed private/public partnerships and received a Global eBook award (honorable mention) for Who Killed Emmett Till. She wrote a computer book, Abort! Retry! Fail!, that was named an alternate selection by The Book-of-the-Month Club.
Susan Klopfer lives and writes in Cuenca, Ecuador. She is currently investigating the alleged kidnapping and murder of Boris Weisfeiler, a Russian immigrant to the United States and a former math professor at Penn State University, as well as Colonia Dignidad, a torture camp in Chile. With focus also on remote viewing, this new book will be a sequel to The Plan, first in her Civil Rights Mystery Sleuth action adventure series. The Plan opens with the murder of a black Southern civil rights lawyer.
Klopfer's second novel, yet named, shifts to the alleged murder of Weisfeiler, a math professor of Jewish heritage who moved to the United States, and then disappeared while on a camping trek deep in Andean foothills of Chile's central valley. Colonia Dignad, the reported site of Weisfeiler's disappearance, was established in 1961 by former German medic Paul Shaefer who'd fled to Chile where he joined Nazi criminals. With the 1973 Fascist takeover of Chile, Shaefer was befriended by Augusto Pinochet who with the Chilean secret police, the "DINA", used Dignidad as one of their torture centers, a remote estate flanked by tall mountains and a swift river that openly operated until 2005.
Susan is a graduate of Hanover College and Indiana Wesleyan University, where she received a Master's Degree in Business Administration.
