Lottery winners, Jack and Maggie Keegan, decide to live big after they hit the winning numbers. They have money – lots of money. And, one goal – to spend that money living a lifestyle that only money can buy. They can have it all now and they intend to do exactly that.


In a matter of weeks, they leave Chicago and move hundreds of miles away to their ‘Shangri La’, as Maggie calls it. Then, one day, after spending his time exploring their woods, her son lets it slip that there is a nudist camp on the property north of theirs. As Maggie tries to accept this bad news, an acquaintance from their old home town, is found floating nude in their private lake.


As the Keegan family struggles to hold it together, their youngest son goes missing, and their “Shangri La’ comes crashing down on their heads.

The Box House

A Mystery Novel 

Released July 2020

Available on Amazon

What a wonderful night in Columbus with The Books and Beer Club. I was told it was the largest attendance that they had ever had. We had a delightful discussion about my book, The House on Ludington Street. I signed many books and met some super people. I wish to thank them for their hospitality. I had a great time.

Crossing Sydney

No matter how sophisticated a reader you are, Crossing Sydney is going to surprise you. A unique plot that keeps you riveted until the very end where you'll find yourself going back to read the last few pages just in case you missed something. You didn't - you were delightfully and masterfully tricked.

 The Mayor's Son

A simple town, a simple time ... and two ghastly crimes. Having grown up in small town America, I appreciated the undercurrents throughout the story. Cops, parents, friends and neighbors thinking the know everything there is to know about the goings-on around town ... only to find out otherwise. I found Susan's work to be an entertaining read that flowed well, kept me engaged, and provided a sufficient amount of suspense all the way to the surprise ending. Well done ...
