What a thought-provoking post. And it makes me wonder how much crime and violence is borne out of feelings of inadequacy, shame, or being an outcast in youth.

Susan, your work is new to me, so I can't even hazard a guess, but I am adding your books to my list of wanted reads!

I am just discovering your books now, too, so no guesses, but going on my TBR list right now. I'm glad you added the part about witty and laugh out loud :-).

We probably never lose the desire to be part of something and belong, but when we read something like Catronia's experience it dredges up those memories we have buried of a time when we really didn't fit it and how painful that was.


Merci Susan, for your thoughtful comments! I am proud to be your agent:-)

I read both your books Susan and while the genre was absolutely new for me....i couldn't put the books down! Alas....I'm at that age when details illude me so i can't guess....
But I will run right over to amazon and buy your next on my Kindle app.

and I'll look forward to the MOVIE!!



Happy to be making it on to some TBR lists! Thanks for checking out the blog. Nice surprise to see my amazing agent dropping in, too. Blanche, from your ears, as they say...!

I enjoyed Murder in the Abstract, but it's been several years since I read it. I remember the gallery, and the professor, and the ceramics. I can tell you where the murder took place. But names--I haven't a clue.

Nice post, Susan.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

SO interesting And sometimes, being the outsider makes you stronger and better and more self-sufficient, though, right?

Lovely to see you here, Susan! I am SUCH a fan!


Thank you, Susan!


Yes, Hank, you're so right. I think that worked for me, in fact, although not everyone is so lucky. Thanks for stopping by to chime in!
