A native of Montreal, Susan Calder moved to Calgary twenty years ago with her husband and two sons. She is the author of Deadly Fall, a murder mystery novel set in Calgary that introduces insurance investigator sleuth, Paula Savard. Susan is thrilled that BWL has published the sequel, Ten Days in Summer, which takes place during the Calgary Stampede.


Susan has published short stories, poems and articles in magazines and anthologies and teaches fiction writing courses and workshops at the Alexandra Writers Centre Society. She is a member of Crime Writers of Canada and the Writers’ Guild of Alberta and serves on the board of When Words Collide Festival for Readers and Writers. When Susan isn’t writing or engaged in writing related activities, you are likely to find her travelling or hiking.
