Susan Whitfield, Logan Hunter Mysteries

I’d like to welcome Susan Whitfield, author of the intriguing and award-winning Logan Hunter Mystery series. A native North Carolinian, Susan lives in eastern NC with her husband and near their two sons. The fourth and possibly the last in the Logan Hunter series, Sin Creek, will be available in Fall 2010. Susan is currently working on The Goose Parade of Old Dickeywood, not part of the series. She also has plans to write an historical mystery about an ancestor who was a Knight of the Bath under King Henry I.

Susan has compiled recipes from mystery writers across the country into a cookbook called Killer Recipes, due for August release. Proceeds of the recipe book will benefit the American Cancer Society. (Don’t miss my recipes in Susan’s book, including the sinfully delicious Terrormasu!)

Susan, you certainly sound like a busy lady. Tell us, what were you doing 25 years ago?

SUSAN: Twenty-five years ago, I was still teaching high school English and my son, Heath, was a sophomore shortstop on my head coach husband’s AAAA high school baseball team. Between ball games, I graded about 150 student papers nearly every day. I believed in improving their basic writing skills and in giving them quick feedback.

The team went on to win the North Carolina State 4444 Baseball Championship. What a thrilling day that was for all of us! Your question is so timely because we’ve invited all team members, their families, and coaches back to our house for a 25th reunion in June. As you have probably figured out, I was not writing novels at that time. I worked full-time and went to school full-time to earn my Master’s and then my doctorate. I always wanted to write and finally got around to it once I retired from my principalship in 2005. I am loving it!

    Stacy, thanks so much for having me over. What a great question! Best wishes always!

  2. Hey, Susan. Great to hear more about you. I would have bought Hell Swamp just because of the title if it hadn’t been recommended as a great read. Didn’t disappoint.

    Hi, Susan and Stacy. Nice to read all about Susan’s available books and future plans … and, of course, what she was doing 25 years ago! Susan, as a timely FYI, I just finished reading Josephine Tey’s “Daughter of Time” that is an historical mystery about Richard III and I think Henry I is mentioned with many of the kings and conquerors. Goodreads has reviews. Looking forward to “Killer Recipes”!
