Please welcome today’s guest, Suzanne Bratcher, who writes cozy mysteries. Suzanne’s debut novel, The Copper Box, just released a few weeks ago.
Suzanne is a retired English professor, and she lives in central Arkansas. Her story is set in Jerome, Arizona, which is the largest ghost town in America. Not surprisingly, the characters in The Copper Box are dealing with some ghosts from their pasts.
While we were recording this interview, Suzanne and I were trying to think of which famous author had said something to the effect of people have no business writing until they’re at least 40 years old, because before that age, they haven’t lived long enough to have something to write about. Neither of us could come up with the exact quote or remember who said it.
So . . . we need YOUR help! If you know the quote/originator, please put your answer in the comments. The first person to post the correct answer will get a FREE eBook of my mystery novel, DEAD BROKE. Thanks for helping us out!
A preacher’s kid, Suzanne Bratcher grew up in churches in four states. A passionate reader, she began writing as a young girl.

Suzanne continued to write: publishing professional articles, two textbooks, short stories, and poetry.

About her latest book:
Jerome, Arizona: the largest ghost town in America
Antiques expert Marty Greenlaw comes to Jerome to face the horror that haunts her dreams: Did she kill her little sister twenty-two years ago?
Historian Paul Russell is in Jerome to face his own horror: Was the car crash that killed his wife his fault?
Their lives become intertwined when an old lady dies on a long staircase in a vintage Victorian house. As Marty and Paul search the house for a small copper box Marty believes will unlock the mystery, accidents begin to happen.
Someone else wants the copper box, someone willing to commit murder to get it. As Marty and Paul face the shadows in the house and in their lives, they must learn to put the past behind them and run the race God is calling them to.
