About Susan Schoeffield

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" (http://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.

Review by: Cozy Cat Press on June 17, 2010 :
A delightful murder mystery, thinly-veiled version of the Marilyn Monroe "suicide." When playwright Peter Gregory is asked by Hollywood producer Zachary Max to investigate the death of screen legend Jennifer Deane, he accepts with a certain amount of skepticism. The money is good and Max offers access to many Hollywood icons that fascinate Peter. However, the primary reason is Peter's total adoration of Jennifer Deane. As he becomes embroiled in his detective work, he finds assistance from several unexpected sources--one other worldly. I thoroughly enjoyed "Tarnished Idol." It was a totally different type of murder mystery and the sly references to actual past movie stars made it all the more delicious.
