Susan travelled extensively overseas with her family, debuted locally and internationally and served as Queen of the Fiesta of Five Flags in 1984. Yet Susan, like her grandfather, wanted to work in law enforcement. As a small-town cop for the City of Milton, Susan found the unique joy in helping and protecting her community, but her other passion, writing, drew her back to school for more studies. Cold Case in Ellyson is that intersection of her work as a cop colliding with her love of writing. Her book, a Southern work of literary fiction, won the 2010 Eric Hoffer Book Award for Commercial Fiction
