I've been an avid reader since I could hold a book in my hands. I enjoy words, the play of words, the origin of words and using words to say exactly what you mean (although I'm still working on this bit!). I also enjoy meeting new friends and discussing a good book.

More information about me and my work, as well as excerpts from "Murder by Yew" and "Murder by Proxy" can be found at http://www.SuzanneYoungBooks.com and at http://www.MainlyMurderPress.com


This past year has been a great success for the Edna Davies mysteries, and for this, I thank you, my readers.

"Murder by Mishap" was released at the end of April. This third book in the series has proven even more popular than the first, and put me on the "most popular author" list for Kindle mysteries.

Murder by Proxy by Suzanne   Young
"Edna Davies is an old-fashioned lady, a little timid, insecure and content to let others take the limelight. Until, that is, her curiosity and concern for the fate of a missing young woman rouses her Miss Marple instincts. Goaded on by fear that h..." Read more of this review »

I found this mystery hard to put down. The characters, the plot and the setting are neatly interwoven with a smooth writing style that is a pleasure to read. The story is complex and keeps you guessing to the end.

Stacy Juba Hey, we just had to pick a "time" for the site launch party as Goodreads requires that for invitations, but it'll be going on for several days. Anytime you're bored, pop in! The message board will be there.

Amber I enjoy books that have suspense. I also really enjoy books if I know they are true stories. Out of all the books I have read though, its the suspense that has kept me floored. The book that I'm reading now has gotten predictable and I'm having a difficult time finishing it (I know its a YA book and I shouldn't judge it too hard, but there are alot of really great YA books out there)

Me, too! I look forward to it!

Beth Hi Suzanne,
I thought your name & photo looked familiar! Yes, To Hell in a Handbasket is also a Five Star release. I also have a new series contract with Midnight Ink, the first of which, Deadly Currents, will come out next March. I'll be at Colorado Gold this fall. Will you?

Then that's doubly nice, Amber! Nice to be your book friend and an author, as well! We'll have lots to talk about, I'm sure. Hope you enjoy my story and I'll look forward to discussing it with you, if you'd like.
