The winner of the (not terribly) prestigious WIFTS screenwriting award for All I Wish, the film she wrote and directed starring Sharon Stone, Susan Walter is excited to add “novelist” to an eclectic resume that includes “failed concert violinist,” “unwatchable TV news reporter,” and “dazed mother to two teenage girls.” Groomed to be alone in a room for hours on end by a childhood spent practicing violin, writing books came naturally to Susan, and her husband is pleased she finally discovered her laptop is more than just a vehicle to stream Red Sox baseball. A native of Boston, she suppresses her irresistible accent to avoid stink eye from sports fans across Los Angeles, where she now resides. She has an AB in government from Harvard, which ...more

Because there is a mystery from my past I want to write about, but it is VERY scary for me ... not sure how much to reveal, and how much to fictionalize. I originally thought about making it a memoir, but decided against it. Am working through the outline now. Writing it could be very healing ... or very painful. It won't be my next book, probably two or three books down the road, if I write it.(less)

Covid and my new book

The 2020-2021 school year was hard. I was living in Canada with my two daughters while my husband was living and working in the States. Schools in LA, where we lived when the pandemic hit, had closed their doors, and there was no promise that they would reopen. But Vancouver schools were all in-person. So we packed our car and made the move.
My husband visited as often as he could, but the border w Read more of this blog post »

"4.5 STARS

I hated him, then I liked something he did, then I hated him again. But I enjoyed getting his POV (who doesn't want to hear the baddies side/ a man's perspective). We rarel" Read more of this review »

Quotes by Susan Walter  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I hate when people dismiss the loss of an object because “it’s just a thing.” Things are important. They give comfort, shelter, style, identity. The sum total of your things is a road map of your life. They show where you’ve been, what you accomplished, who you loved, who loved you back. They are an expression of who you are. You can learn a lot about a person by their things. Material things are not what’s most important in life, of course!”
Susan Walter, Good as Dead

“No, a home is not where your heart is, it’s where your effort is. It’s where you cook and eat and sleep and take pains to decorate. It’s where your memories are made and kept. It’s the photos on the mantel, the artwork on the walls, the blankets that you snuggle under, the trees and flowers that you plant and care for.”
Susan Walter, Good as Dead

“If you can’t share your true self with someone, he once told me, you’re wasting your time.”
Susan Walter, Good as Dead
