One of the things Susan Finlay likes best about reading novels is that you aren’t just seeing words. With a well-written book, you’re seeing a movie in your head, feeling what the characters are feeling, and visiting all kinds of interesting places. You’re learning, experiencing new things, and perhaps even finding ways to empathize with people you didn’t previously understand.

That’s why she wanted to learn to write. She wanted to create that kind of experience.

In addition to writing, Susan  loves photography and traveling. She’s originally from Germany, grew up in the U.S., and now lives in Arizona with her husband and their cats. Their grown son lives in Germany with his wife; their grown daughter lives in the U.S. Before becoming an author, Susan earned a degree in business and worked as a Bank Auditor.

She has nine published novels. Her newest release, Breadcrumbs and Bombs, is the first in a brand new historical mystery series and is earning good reviews. She is busy at work on more books. She’s always working on a brand new book. The first four books in her Outsiders mystery series are In the Shadows, Where Secrets ResideWinter Tears, and The Forgotten Tomb. She has two two books in her Bavarian Woods time travel mystery series and they are Inherit the Past and Tanglewood Grotto. In addition, she has two other series. The first book in her Project Chameleon suspense series is Liars’ Games, and the first book in her Chambre Noir mystery series is The Handyman.
