Karen McKay lived a nice, quiet life. She has a place in the Rock Haven condos. Most of her neighbors keep to themselves. Karen was unloading groceries when a mysterious dust cloud appears. This dust cloud is not your typical cloud of dust. No this dust comes in the colors of red, green and blue. The dust picks up a collectable of Karen’s and it violently crashes to the floor, shattering in a bunch of little pieces.

Karen thinks nothing of the incident…till later that night; she hears one of her

Some books are much better a second time around.

Some books are meant to be read more than just once. I enjoyed Dust over 3 years ago when I first purchased it, but going through my library something compelled me to read it a second time. I really enjoyed it more the second time around.

I really enjoyed the uniqueness of the characters and the story plot. it was well played out and had things you would never suspect. The idea of Dust being a enemy is just outrageous and wonderful! Dust was well worth the read. It was a little quick to read but I really enjoyed it and I feel like it could almost be a sequel later on. I hope to read more of Susan's things in the near future.

I have been a nonfiction writer for nearly my entire career. I had originally planned to be an elementary school teacher, but left after a year to become a newspaper reporter for Fairchild Publications. I covered men's retailing for Daily News Record, a men's wear/textile trade newspaper, which was the "brother" paper of Women's Wear Daily.

After my children were born, I switched to freelance writ
