Susan Anderson graduated from Southern Methodist University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in journalism in1986; and, from George Stone Vocational School in Pensacola from the Criminal Justice, Law Enforcement Program in 1996.  Susan Anderson has worked as a reserve officer and then a full-time officer for the Milton Police Department (Florida).  Susan Anderson is the author of Cold Case in Ellyson.

According to the book description of Cold Case in Ellyson, “Kathleen lives out the legacy of her grandfather - she, too, works in law enforcement. With her training, she sets out to solve the cold case of her grandmother's murder, but in seeking justice, Kathleen also discovers there is danger in working alone. Her best friend and fellow officer, Joe, helps her in this journey where they ultimately find the truth about themselves.”


One reader of Cold Case in Ellyson said, “I thought it was a great mystery and I liked the way it gently unwrapped a lot of the "gentile southern" personalities. Having grown up in the south I have found that most books and/or movies do not really know how to deal with the southern traditions without a lot of exaggeration. It was also refreshing to read a mystery that dealt with a three dimensional main character. Most writers fail to develop their main character and the reader is left guessing what the main character is about. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a refreshing change from the "typical" mystery novel.”


One reader of Cold Case in Ellyson said it “is one of those books that falls into the "can't put it down" category. As I began reading the story, the scenes came to life with a descriptive style that is rarely found in modern novels. In a style reminiscent of that found in "Gone With the Wind," Susan's writing paints detailed and realistic pictures of life in a small Southern town - both present and past. You will find yourself working right along side Kathleen and Joe as they investigate a cold case murder in a small Alabama town. You begin to feel a kinship with the main characters and relate to them in a way uncommon in most modern literature. I highly recommend Susan Anderson's "Cold Case in Ellyson." The story is clean, family-friendly and very well-written. Get a copy for yourself and see if you don't agree. Maybe you will solve the mystery before Katheleen or Joe.”
