"This is a story about passion, bloodshed, desire, and death: everything, in fact, that makes life worth living." --Irma la Douce

Please visit the Spyderwort Press site
, still somewhat under construction, for information, sample chapters, and buy links worldwide for Susanne Alleyn's books.
Romans Were Known For Their Aquaducks
, the latest offering from my Spyderwort Press, is a hilarious collection of genuine student bloopers that cover Western civilization from Roman aquaducks and the ancient Egyptian Shinx to Carol Marx, the inventor of socialism. (No, it's not by me, though I edited/published it on behalf of the long-suffering college professor who compiled it.) A great giggle or gift for the history fan. Get the eBook FREE
for a limited time at selected online retailers. Visit the Spyderwort Press
site for info, samples, and buy links worldwide.

Are you a member of a book club?
Are you part of a neighborhood book club or writers' group in the USA, Canada, or UK? If so, would you and your group like to hold a live phone chat with an author?
Writers love talking about their work! (It probably comes from spending way too many hours alone at a keyboard.) I'd be delighted to visit on the phone with your group for an hour to answer your questions and/or discuss my books, mystery fiction, historical fiction, writing, getting published, and so on. College-level writing or history classes are also welcome.
Contact me to set up a date and time for a chat--don't forget to remind me what time zone you're in--and tell me a little about your group. All you need at your end is a speakerphone; I'll pay for the call. I look forward to visiting with you!
