#RRBC SEPTEMBER “SPOTLIGHT” #Author, @SusanneLeist #RRBCSA #RRBC_Community



Susanne Leist


I have always loved to read. Agatha Christie, Alistair Maclean, Robert Ludlum, and other authors filled my young imagination with intrigue and mystery. When I wasn’t reading late into the night, the TV shows such as Murder She Wrote and Columbo, entertained me with murder and suspense tales.

Over the years, my taste in TV expanded to include such shows as Supernatural and The Originals. I searched for paranormal, murder mysteries, but found few at the library or bookstore. So, I wrote one.

The Dead Game, Book One of The Dead Game series, brings fantasy and surrealism to the classic murder mystery with dead bodies, suspects, and clues. It offers vampires, vampire derivatives, and a touch of romance to spice the motley mix.

The story continues in Book Two, Prey for The Dead, as The Dead vampires use an exclusive club in Disney World to infiltrate the rich and famous. As The Dead grow in power, not even the bright sunshine of Florida can weaken them. Linda and her friends join forces with human vampires–known as hybrids–to defeat the evil threatening to control Oasis. A masquerade ball and a romp through the tunnels beneath the town lead to a showdown in southern Florida’s swamps.

The Dead At Heart is Shana’s love story. Will her love for William strengthen, or will Sam lead her on a different path? At Chateau Frontenac in Quebec, Shana and her fearless friends fight for Oasis and their lives.

A career in writing has been a giant leap for me. Accustomed to the number-crunching field of budgeting and the hectic commodity markets, I left my first career and M.B.A. in Finance behind to pursue my dream. I do not regret my foray into literature for one moment. Fellow authors helped me make my way through the competitive field. I write every day and even tried my hand at poetry. If someone tells you it’s too late in life to try something different, they are wrong. It is never too late to follow your heart.

The Dead at Heart by Susanne Leist


William’s bite bonded Shana to him, but he didn’t ask her to mate with him for life. She isn’t ready for a lifetime commitment. Now, William excludes her from his vampire meetings. Shana understands he’s an original vampire with immense powers. For them to be a couple, he has to treat as an equal partner. If William doesn’t respect her, then what are their chances of finding happiness?

  1. I have truly enjoyed Karen’s blog tour. I’m leaving for a vacation today, so I may miss out on the last few days. Karen, I have your newest short story on my Kindle, and I hope to read it while on vacation. 🙂

  3. Rox and Charles, I hope you guys enjoyed your time in the RRBC spotlight and that Enigma Series books flew off the shelves (Well, really Amazon, but you get the idea)! Congrats again!


  4. Wow! Thank you Nonnie from both Breakfield and Burkey for this outstanding opportunity. It is such a delightful surprise and we love being a part of this awesome #RRBC community.


  5. Forrest, you had an amazing tour! So happy for you. You’re so sweet and kind, you deserve every bit of support you’re getting. But, guess what? It’s not over! Heck, it’s just beginning! Can’t wait for you to sit down with Wendy and then you’re taking your chances on the shelf with me. Prepare yourself, though…my shelf can be plenty slippery (if you don’t answer the questions the right way).

    See you soon!
