As an author, I am never sure if my book tells an interesting, coherent story that someone may actually find entertaining. And that is the reason I write—to hopefully provide the reader with a compelling, and sometimes humorous, story that will serve as a break from the everyday routine of work and stress. The recognition above gives me some confidence that I am accomplishing my purpose and motivates me to work harder on my third novel (I was stalled after the first five chapters). Thanks for reading this Post. Tom Breen

Emmy, Audie, Audible Book-of-the-Year award-winning narrator, Moira Quirk is the new voice of Anna in THE SECRET LIFE OF ANNA BLANC audiobook, written by Jennifer Kincheloe. The book, set in diverse 1907 Los Angeles, features characters from all over Europe and North America. Quirk, known for creating unique character voices, masterfully delivers a dozen different accents of both men and women. She even sings! For a sample, click here.
The novel was a finalist in the Lefty Award for Best Historical Mystery, the Macavity Sue Feder Award for Historical Mystery, the Colorado Author’s League Award for Genre Fiction, and was the winner of the Colorado Gold Award for Mystery.
In the novel, mischievous socialite Anna Blanc is the kind of young woman who devours purloined crime novels, but must disguise them behind covers of more domestically-appropriate reading. She could match wits with Sherlock Holmes, but in her world women are not allowed to hunt criminals. Determined to break free of the era’s rigid social roles, Anna buys off the chaperone assigned by her domineering father and, using an alias, takes a job as a police matron with the Los Angeles Police Department. There she discovers a string of brothel murders, which the cops are unwilling to investigate. Seizing her one chance to solve a crime, she takes on the investigation herself. If the police find out, she’ll get fired; if her father finds out, he’ll disown her; and if her fiancé finds out, he’ll cancel the wedding. Midway into her investigation, the police chief’s son, Joe Singer, learns her true identity, and shortly thereafter she learns about blackmail. Anna must choose – either hunt the villain and risk losing her father, fiancé, and wealth, or abandon her dream and leave the killer on the loose.

A new way to look at an old myth.
After Zach Harris is attacked by a wolf, the most bizarre consequence isn’t that the police suspect he’s the serial killer… or that he’s growing hair in funny places, wants to mark his territory and chase rabbits…not even that he’s falling for Lucy Lane, a tenacious reporter who can expose his secret. What is truly strange is the wolf who bit him now turns into a man during the full moon.
Sucked into a murder investigation, Zach races against the clock while the Moonlight Killer taunts the police. As the pickled body parts pile up and one of Logansville’s finest goes missing, Zach forms a strange alliance to avoid life in prison orange, catch the real murderer, and try to save the woman he loves.
“A fun and playful romp through a dark forest of supernatural shenanigans. Only the dark forest is a private gated community in New Mexico. And the shenanigans include werewolves, vampires, a serial killer, and jars of pickled body parts”.
– S.G. Browne, author of Breathers and Lucky Bastard
“An edge-of-your-seat thriller and an impressive debut from Suzanne Robb!” – Richard Starkings creator ELEPHANTMEN and Comicraft
