The Box House

A Mystery Novel 

John Box migrated to a small town in Wisconsin in 1910. He bought some land, built a house, and started a rabbit farm. It was a weird shaped house, designed so that he could watch out for predators and keep his rabbits safe. But, the predator that came knocking on his door wasn’t a fox or a weasel. It was a man. A man who would start the chain of horror that would continue for over a hundred years, until the last of John Box’s family was dead.


When Samantha Carlson hears the story of a fortune hidden on this old rabbit farm, she doesn’t hesitate to buy it with expectations of finding the money. Soon realizing that the job is beyond her capabilities, she enables the help of an old friend and together they begin the search. However, when they find human bones buried out by the barn, Samantha wonders if the stories about the house being cursed are true.


After being called out to investigate a murder, Sheriff Pritchard begins to question if he knows his town as well as he thinks he does. Could one of his neighbors in this small town be capable of such an unspeakable act?

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 ...
