Editorial Reviews


Susan May seems to be following in the footsteps of 
Stephen King. I, for one, have already put her on my 'if she writes it, I will read it' list. Madelon Wilson (Good Reads Reviewer USA) 

Not since Odd Thomas have I enjoyed a character as much as I do Rory Fine! Carolyn Werner 
(Good Reads Reviewer USA) 

Susan May proves once again why she is the foremost genre writer of the suspense/thriller/supernatural novel. Judy Clay 
(Amazon reviewer USA) 

This story has it all. A dark thriller combined with fascinating science, eerie supernatural occurrences, gruesome (unique, never read this before) murders, breath-stopping suspense, beautiful love and inspiring acts of kindness between human beings. Loretta Paszkat 
(Fiction Addiction Book Club Canada) 

I just finished it and my initial thought upon completion was Wow! Jan E. Klein 
(Good Reads reviewer USA) 

I absolutely loved this book just as much as I did Susan May's others and more. Jane Culwell 
(Good Reads reviewer USA) 

A unique take on a serial killer and the author is brilliant at creating a storyline that leaves the reader breathless. Maureen Ellis 
(Good Reads reviewer UK) 

Susan May is Australia's best kept secret. Her name belongs to the A-List suspense writers Parthenon, next to 
Stephen King, Gillian Flynn, Dean Koontz or Glenn Cooper. Jorge Lopez (Good Reads Reviewer USA) 
Susan May continues to astound me. 'The Troubles Keeper' kept me spellbound. Sandy Jones (Good Reads Reviewer New Zealand) 

Watch out 
Stephen King Susan May is coming up on the outside with her outstanding story-telling. Lynn McCarthy (Good Reads Reviewer Australia)

About the Author

In 2016 Susan May has sold more than 100,000 books.  Her stories and immersive style have been likened to Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Robert Mathieson, Gillian Flynn and Ray Bradford

She was four when she decided she would become a writer and packed a bag to march down the road looking for a school. For forty-six years after, she suffered from life-gets-in-the-way-osis. Setting a goal to write just one page a day cured her in 2010. 
This discipline grew into an addictive habit that has since born multiple best-selling dark thriller novels and dozens of short stories and novellas, many of which are published 
award-winners in Australia, the U.S.A and the U.K. 
Susan lives in beautiful Perth, Western Australia with her two teenage sons and husband, while her mind travels to dark places most would fear to visit unless they love the dark side.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Susan May's writing style and story concepts have been likened by her army of fans to Stephen King and early Dean Koontz. She's sold more than 250,000 books.

She was four when the idea of writing stories settled upon her. Yes, she was an odd kid jotting down tales in her lunch breaks instead of playing ball. In her twenties, though, life-gets-in-the-way-osis side-tracked her from her first love. Cured in 2010, she spends her days now creating page-turning stories in the genres she loves to read: horror, science fiction, thriller and suspense, including the occasional psychopath. Well, a lot of psychopaths, actually.

She's also a short story fan and has written dozens of stories and novellas, many published award winners in Australia, U.S.A., and UK.

Most days Susan May is your average soccer mom and wife enjoying life in Perth, Western Australia with her husband and two sons, where the neighbors have no idea some may have slipped into the crevices of her dark imagination. As Susan often remarks, "Life is good, unless you're one of my characters. Then you're in trouble. Big, scary trouble."
