Newman, Susan: - Susan is a retired teacher of English and this is her second novel. Originally from Co. Cork she now lives in Limerick and is the mother of four grown-up children. The success of her first novel was a great impetus to complete and publish 'Betrayal', the second in the series of Inspector Morecamb stories. Both books are of the Crime fiction genre and both are set in the late 60s in rural Ireland. She has had a number of topical articles published in 'Headstuff' and devotes most of her time to writing. She also enjoys gardening and walking.
