Susan Breen

Susan Breen is the bestselling author of the Maggie Dove mystery series. She is especially honored to have won the Westchester Library Association's Washington Irving Award for "readability, literary quality, and wide general appeal."

The Maggie Dove series is set in a small village in the Hudson Valley in New York. It's a beautiful place, but it does have its secrets.

Maggie Dove is an amateur detective. Drawn into solving a crime when her dear friend is accused of murder, she discovers she has a knack for it. Maybe it comes from her years of being a Sunday School teacher, which have taught her that most people are a mixture of good and bad. Sometimes she feels like being a detective is her way of figuring out the world.

Susan Breen is also the author of The Fiction Class and a lot of short stories. She teaches novel-writing at Gotham Writers. She lives in a small village in the Hudson Valley with her husband, two very spoiled cockapoo dogs, and two somewhat hostile cats.
