    Hello – I just emailed you my Green Bean Bundle recipe. I won’t be able to post the recipe on my blog until Tuesday, Aug 21, and I know you might be making these soon.

      Making them this weekend and can’t wait 🙂

    I couldn’t get your email address to work, so I posted here….

    I feel weird doing this because I was taught a healthy respect for the police (I promise to never say “cop”) and I can’t believe I’m emailing one! You can’t imagine my terror when I found out that my 4 year old really was talking to someone (for two straight weeks!) on an old disconnected cell phone (I thought he was pretending!), which happened to be 911 (which I never taught him!) and they had to send a police officer to my door (when they finally located me!). I was more scared than my son, let me tell ya. So this is taking serious courage…..

    Anywho, I got a copy of your first book awhile back and loved reading it. I was so excited to find that you had written a second book that I purchased it the moment I finished the first. I finished reading the second book just this afternoon and was disappointed there wasn’t a third book waiting. I just can’t get enough, so I signed up for your blog and started reading back stories. This is where I found your offer for writing a review / receiving a free digital copy of your third book. I wrote a review on just a few moments ago. I am also looking forward to the new book. However, I totally understand if the offer is too old (it WAS April of 2012). No worries! I’ll still be getting your third book when it’s available

    Other than that, I just want to say that I really have enjoyed your books. Your first book (Cadet) inspired me (a 41 yr old who feels that life is pretty much over at this age!) I love your humor but I also appreciate the sad, frustrating, and horrible stories. They all touch my heart in some way.

    And one other thing, thank you for your unbelievably hard work even when no one seems to notice or appreciate it and you may have nothing (but a written report) to show for it. You (and officers like you!) are amazing.

    Best regards to you,

    Heather Wynn

      Hi Heather, This is an incredibly special email. I’m going to send you a private message through Facebook and only say here that you’ve made me feel wonderful!

    Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with the world, Suzie. I read both of your books after getting hooked here on your blog and I could not put them down. (Seriously, I didn’t get a damn thing done for a few days, lol.) I am so happy for you that you were able to achieve your dream. You are an inspiration. I wish you the best of luck!

      Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a wonderful comment. I need to update the blog and catch everyone up on my latest adventures. They’re probably boring in comparison to my first years. Thank you again! Suzie

    Hi Suzie, I just read your book-The Forever Team, and I loved it! On the Goodreads page, of your lists of books, there is a book- The Forever Delinquent, that I would like to purchase, it says that it came out in Feb.2016, but when I go to Amazon, I can’t find it. I would really like to read it, since it appears to be the continuation of the story of The Forever Team. Could you tell me how I could obtain this book, Thank you, Janie Freeman

      Hi Janie, Thank you for the very kind words! I had to cancel the release of Delinquent due to my romance writing contracts in 2016. As of now, I don’t have a release date. You’ve given me a nudge which I appreciate it. I had also planned to write a full-length mystery this year featuring the same detective. “Ten” is the title. I seriously need more hours in my day.

    Hi, I am looking for information about females detectives/police and I happy I found you. I will be reading your books too asap. I am training for the fitness test for the HNL police recruit and …this is the best or the worst…I AM 55 Fast running to 56…any advice???

      Go for it and you can never run too much to prepare. Remember you have time on your side and the head games won’t be as bad for you once you’re in the academy. Never stop and I don’t care if it’s running or fighting. You can be the slowest and the oldest but you never give up. With that mentality, you’ll succeed. I’m really excited for you!
