Susanne Leist, Author

I have always loved to read. I grew up with Agatha Christie, Alistair Maclean and so many other authors who filled my imagination with intrigue and mystery. The TV show, Murder She Wrote, kept me entertained when I was not reading late into the night.
Over the years, my taste in books has expanded to include the supernatural and paranormal genres as reflected in my selection of shows, such as Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, and The Originals.
My first book, The Dead Game, is a paranormal suspense/mystery. It brings fantasy and the surreal to the simple murder mystery. It has dead bodies and suspects. However, it also has vampires, vampire derivatives, and a touch of romance to spice up the mix.

Linda Bennett moves to Oasis, Florida to live a quieter life. She opens a bookstore and makes new friends. Life is simple–that is until the dead body washes up on shore. She is horrified to find out that dead bodies and disappearing tourists are typical for this small town. As soon as the sun sets, she and her friends are stalked by dark shadows. But this is only the beginning. Linda and her group receive an unsigned invitation to a party at End House. A deserted house waits for them filled with revolving rooms, horrifying traps, and illusions. The home has a sinister life of its own. With two of their friends lost inside, the young residents are forced to flee for their lives. They embark on an arduous journey, chased by supernatural creatures, not knowing whom to trust, to uncover the one controlling the evil game and their town. Who are The Dead? Are they humans or vampires? Or a combination of both? Will Linda lose her heart to Todd? Will her best friend, Shana, fall for Sheriff Sam? Will a second book be needed?

The Dead Game has begun.
