Susan is the USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author of the Lily Gayle Lambert Mystery Series and a contributing author to the Brotherhood Protectors World.

A lifelong long love of all things mysterious led Susan to write cozy mysteries. Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden were the first to show her that girls can be crime solvers. Agatha Christie showed her that even small towns have big secrets. And Phryne Fisher showed her lady detectives can be outrageously individual. She lives in Mississippi with her rescue mini dachshund, Lucy, and her rescue cat of no particular breed, Zimba. She currently writes the Lily Gayle Lambert mystery series set in the fictional town of Mercy, Mississippi featuring a multi-generational cast of female s

Thank you for stopping by to chat. My favorite part of writing Death of a Wolfman was Miss Edna. I love all the characters but it was so much fun to write this crotchety, busybody, smart mouth old woman. I can see Lily Gayle being just like Miss Edna some day. They have a lot of similarities about them. (less)

Description: Deep POV of a room I remember. This was a writing exercise assigned by author Debra Parmley at a recent talk she gave. This is straight off the cuff writing with a five minute time limit. The parameters were to use deep POV to bring a reader into a room that you remember well. I have not edited since I wrote it at the session on Saturday. What do you think? Did I bring you into the room with me?

This book kept me engaged all the way through. I didn't not guess the killer and when the killer was revealed i was so surprised! But all of the clues were there. I just did not put them together. I highly recommend this mysyery!

“I will not live to see you grow to womanhood, so I have written my story for you, my beloved grandchild, so that you can know the truth of what happened here so many years ago. I'm sure that in the course of your life you have wonderd about whispered conversations that stop when you are near. Wondered too about the knowing looks cast at you and your family. I am equally sure that your father has never found it in his heart to tell you the truth you are about to read. I beg you not to be angry with hime for withholding the truth from you. He has suffered greatly for my sins.”
Susan Boles writing as Renee Russell

“Everything we are is at every moment alive in us.”
Arthur Miller

“I'd love to tell you I had some deep revelation on my way down, that I came to terms with my own mortality, laughed in the face of death, et cetera.

The truth? My only thought was: Aaaaggghhhhh!”
Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

“There are many, many ways to be imprisoned. You don’t need fences, handcuffs, chains, or steel bars. Your heart, or your own mind can imprison you within yourself. Another human being can imprison you with their actions and thoughts.”
Cary Allen Stone, Through a Mother's Eyes
