Susan Reiss trained as a concert pianist then worked as a television writer/producer for many years. Her work has received a Silver Medal, New York International Film Festival, the Cine Golden Eagle, three Tellys Awards and numerous Emmy nominations.
She was named a Scribe of the Shore in 2015 (referring to the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay)
She often speaks at workshops and signing. She was honored to be part of the Sheldon Goldgeier Lecture Series twice.
Her blog explores topics about writing, sterling silver, sailing and Eastern Shore life at www.SusanReiss.com. Though the Shore is only 90 minutes from Washington, DC and Baltimore, she loves to say it's a whole different world.
She makes her home in St. Michaels, Maryland, the scene of her mystery series. Sometimes neighbors get a little nervous that one may become a victim... or a killer in one of her stories.
