I’m happy to announce the publication of my seventeenth book, Maribelle’s Shadow, written under my pen name, Susannah Marren. As with my previous fiction and nonfiction, this novel is about how women truly feel as mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, rivals and lovers. It speaks to my ongoing question: how do women in our culture, at any age, navigate a path — and why do family secrets, lies, betrayal, and loyalty fuel our survival? To this end, the story of Maribelle, whose husband dies in the first chapter, her two sisters, and their mother is revealed as a mystery and a journey, with each character put to an ultimate test. You can read more about the novel here.
This summer I’ll be traveling for Maribelle’s Shadow, as well as doing zoom events, book clubs, and connecting with readers. Please reach out to me from my contact page if you are interested in having me join in your reading group or organization and sign up for my newsletter. You’ll find discussion questions and a calendar of events here on my website and I look forward to hearing from you!
