Milele Friend ~ Suzanne Burke

To celebrate Milele Safari’s stint as one of Rave Reviews Book Club Books of the Month for November 2015, I started a new author feature for all writer-reviewers who’ve been kind enough to read my first novel from it’s publication at the end of 2013 to date. Today it’s my great pleasure and honour to present one of RRBC’s most supportive people, former Book of the Month author (with Acts of Redemption) and SPOTLIGHT AUTHOR for February 2017,  Suzanne Burkeor Soooz, as she’s known to us at the club!

 

SOOOZ on SUZANNE BURKE*

dolphinsFirstly may I say “Thank you” for taking an interest in my work. My author name is S Burke. My friends call me Suzanne or Soooz.

Suzanne Burke, lives, loves and laughs in the beautiful harbor-side city of Sydney Australia.
She didn’t begin her published journey until her late fifties. She had a passion for writing from an early age; however, she lacked the confidence to take that final step and complete her books and have them published.
A friend sent a copy of her work to a small publishing house, and to her delight, she was offered a publishing contract for her Non-Fiction works. “Empty Chairs”Book 1 in the (Standing Tall & Fighting Back) series & “Faint Echoes of Laughter”Book 2 in the (Standing Tall & Fighting Back) series.
Both non-fiction works touched a nerve with the public and both works hit the top ten on Amazon Paid in Kindle for their categories. Book 3 in the (Standing Tall & Fighting Back) series is “Still Sassy at Sixty.” Due for release in the Spring of 2017.
Sadly her original publisher closed their doors and in consequence the books were removed from sale.

Four years later Suzanna finally found the mojo to self-publish. And here she is. Her absolute passion for the thriller genre has produced 2 books thus far. “Acts Beyond Redemption” Book 1 of the (Unintended Consequences) series and “Acts Of Betrayal” Book 2 of the (Unintended Consequences) series NOW available on pre-order Due for release January 30th 2017

ecEmpty Chairs ~ Standing Tall & Fighting Back (Book 1) (written as Stacey Danson)

She would not allow her future to be determined by the horrors of her childhood. She reached out for something different; there had to be more to life; if she could only find it. She had a dream of a life where pain and humiliation had no place. She was determined to find that life. Empty Chairs is the beginning of the journey. Now she is living the dream.

feolFaint Echoes of Laughter ~ Standing Tall & Fighting Back (Book 2) (written as Stacey Danson)
The shocking and spirited sequel to the much-praised ‘Empty Chairs’. Life on the streets of Sydney was preferable to the nightmare Stacey Danson had survived in the hell that was home.
She hit the streets running at the age of eleven, and armed with a flick-knife and a fierce determination to live a different life, she began the journey from the 1960s to today. For those that came to know ‘Sassy girl’ in ‘Empty Chairs’, and for those caring people that asked how her life worked out from there, ‘Faint Echoes of Laughter’ continues the story.
For those that haven’t met her yet, this book stands alone as a tribute to the kindness of strangers, the loyalty of true friendships and the way things really are on the streets of any town …. anytime.

aob Acts Beyond Redemption ~ Unintended Consequences (Book 1) 
In this powerful sequel to Acts Beyond Redemption Nigel Cantrell is back, and he’s out for blood.
One of his team holds on precariously to life, with no guarantees of recovery.
Can those responsible drag him into a nightmare he will struggle to contain?
In a complex dual where oaths taken are forsaken, and promises made are broken beyond repair; he must seek the help of the only people he can trust, people who revere him … and, those that despise him.
Cantrell is efficient and deadly, but even he has ghosts in his past, demons that must be exorcised. And nothing is more demonic than the peril he must now face, as a one man’s maniacal thirst for revenge is uncovered.
A man so enormously powerful, with a hatred so intense, so extreme, that the possible demise of his own species means nothing to him. He will dispense his revenge as his diseased mind sees fit.
Nigel Cantrell and his team do not have failure as an option.
The fate of their country and beyond now rests in their hands.
Can they prevent the final acts of betrayal?
