Susan Fleet's Biography

Member Info

New Orleans for a while, Boston now
Jul 2008

During my successful career as a Boston-area trumpeter and music professor, I discovered my dark side and began writing crime fiction. New Orleans is the setting for my award-winning Frank Renzi mysteries, Absolution, Diva and Natalie's Revenge. The Premier Book Awards named Absolution Best Mystery-Suspense-Thriller of 2009.
I lived in New Orleans for nine years, enjoying the marvelous music, food and ambiance of the French Quarter. Now I divide my time between the Big Easy and Boston. Visit my website at http://www.susanfleet.com and send me an email. I'd love to hear from you!

My other passion is promoting talented women musicians. While teaching at Brown University and Berklee College of Music, I created a course about female musicians, jazz and classical. See my e-book about two of them: Women Who Dared. Read about more of them at http://www.archives.susanfleet.com
