More About the Author
Hi! My name is Susan Rogers Cooper and I've been writing mysteries since 1988, with the publication of THE MAN IN THE GREEN CHEVY, now available in e-book format right here at Amazon. I'm the mother of one and the grandmother of three, and spend as much time as possible playing with my grandchildren -- when my writing schedule allows, that is! I live in the Austin, Texas, area, and have been a resident of Texas most of my life. My father was a fourth-generation Texan, although my mother was a Yankee. She was forgiven for this -- eventually. I have about 25 books to my name, in three different series: my first born, Milt Kovak; E.J. Pugh; and Kimmey Kruse. Milt and I have been together the longest and I will admit to a slight crush -- although he started out older than me and now he's younger. I'm not sure how he did this. I need to learn that trick!
I plan on putting many of the Milt books in e-book format, to be followed by both E.J. and Kimmey. I hope they find old friends and lots of new ones. The first in the Milt Kovak series, THE MAN IN THE GREEN CHEVY, is now available in e-book format. Here are some comments from the critics:
From Death at Your Door, Fall, 1991: "...a great book, written in a funky, frank, laugh-out-loud first-person style that will keep you hooked from the first page."
From The Armchair Detective, 1991: "Some first novelists write books that are forgotten, some start successful series, and some not only create a popular detective, they also publish books that become highly collectible. Susan Rogers Cooper with her THE MAN IN THE GREEN CHEVY, qualifies for the last two of the three categories."
From Daily Press, Newport News, VA, 04-02-89: The only thing I know about Susan Rogers Cooper are she lives in Austin, Texas, and her first published novel is THE MAN IN THE GREEN CHEVY. That first mystery is every bit as riveting as the latest efforts of (Ed) McBain and (Barbara) Michaels.'
From Booklist, 01-01-89: "First novelist Cooper has created a richly atmospheric small town, populated it with believable citizens, and plugged it all into a clever, disturbing plot. Chief deputy and narrator Kovak is a potential series star. One hopes he returns frequently."
