Books - A Great Gift for Christmas

New Release - Now Available


The book that started it all.

In 2014 Susan wrote Blueberries and Bears and My Brother's Shoes, but never published it. She has since edited the book, rewritten and added many new and humorous chapters. It is now available for purchase on Amazon.

Electronics was not a word you heard used on a day to day basis. When parents wanted to call their kids home for dinner, they opened the door and yelled “dinner’s ready.” They didn’t call them on a cell phone or send them a text.

Second World War ended in the ‘40s and times were tough. Mothers stayed home and took care of the home while fathers worked ten to twelve hours a day to put food on the table.

Even so, it was a less complicated time. Families sat down at the table and ate their meals together, while discussing the events of the day. Children were respectful of their elders and minded their manners or paid the price. And, in most cases, they went to church on Sunday mornings.

To take a trip meant getting in the car and driving to a town to visit friends or relatives in a car that had no air conditioning.

This book will take you back to those days and let you into the world of the unusual upbringing of the author, born generations ago.



Generations have passed but the chapters in this delightful book will remain embedded in the author’s mind forever. Growing up in the1940s and 1950s is so far removed from growing up today that most children cannot even fathom life in those days.  

Fun Reading

for the  Entire Family.

About the story

A young boy’s excitement brings a shock to a neighborhood. A teenage girl is asked to her first prom, only to discover that her father is not the man she thought he was. What God decides is the solution to the world’s biggest problem backfires and changes the world forever.

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 ...

Red, White, and Blue

Let me start off by saying this is a different style of writing by Ms. Pare. This is the first of hopefully many short stories written by her. These short stories make the reader think about people. What they are on the outside may not be necessarily what they are on the inside. After reading Red, White, and Blue it really got me thinking about nature versus nurture and I started asking myself, what if? A great read all around
