More About the Author

Canadian author, Eileen Schuh, is known for her thrilling elements of crime, sensitive treatment of social issues, emotional exploration of the human psyche, and surprisingly satisfying endings.

She has published three novels in her young adult BackTracker series--THE TRAZ (which also comes in a School Edition), FATAL ERROR and FIREWALLS. She's also the proud author of two adult SciFi novellas, SCHRÖDINGER'S CAT and DISPASSIONATE LIES.

She is both traditionally and self-published.

Schuh is honoured to have been invited to present her BackTracker novels as teaching tools to at-risk adolescents in venues such as the North Slave Young Offenders Facility and the St. Paul Alternate Education Centre. THE TRAZ includes a list of international resources to help those facing tough times. In addition, the School Edition includes a Teaching/Discussion Guide to encourage youngsters and the adults in their lives to explore social issues such as gangs, depression, decision-making, dealing with consequences, and developing a sense of justice. This guide, along with one for FATAL ERROR, are also available in downloadable pdf format from her website Reader's Discussion Guides

Born and raised as Eileen Fairbrother in Tofield, Alberta Canada and with ties to Edmonton and Strathcona County, Schuh now lives with her husband near St. Paul in Alberta's northern boreal forests.

Schuh recently retired from a life of careers that varied from psychiatric nurse to journalist to editor to business woman. She remains active in her adopted community of St. Paul and is surrounded by the love and loyalty of family, friends and fans--virtual, imaginary, and real.

Schuh's children and grandchildren are her inspiration.

Just like a good episode of "The Twilight Zone", this story will have you questioning the boundaries of science and reality.

This is the second novel I have had the pleasure to read by author Eileen Schuh. And while I did enjoy the first book, "The Traz", which is a young adult story, I must admit I personally found "Schrodinger's Cat" even better. Of course, that may be because I am a HUGE fan of psychological thrillers, which is what this story really is. Throughout the book, the author keeps you guessing about whether the main character, Chorie, is really traveling between different realities or whether she has just gone insane from the grief of dealing with a daughter who is dying. This story is told masterfully from the beginning to the end, and the end is one that really leaves you thinking. Just like a good episode of "The Twilight Zone", this story will have you questioning the boundaries of science and reality.

Schrodinger's Cat puts the "crazy" into "crazy ideas that a writer can come up with." Eileen Schuh's depiction of a mother experiencing two alternate worlds is intense, frightening and insanely entertaining. Chorie's character develops in intensity as does each mind-bending scene--until the shocking end is revealed.

I highly recommend this read.

I have to admit that I was intrigued to find out how the author was going to incorporate quantum physics into a story about personal loss, infidelity and mental breakdown.
However she has woven this topic seamlessly into the story and it seems to belong there.
An unusual and interesting story that keeps you guessing as to what the final outcome is right up to the last sentence.
I look forward to reading other books by the author.

Schrodinger's Cat
Review by Aaron A. Lehman
Jan. 18, 2012
Eileen Schuh takes the reader on a journey through the entanglements of a mind struggling with emotional dysfunction. She writes what she knows as a psychiatric nurse. Adding to the tension and suspense, she blends science with fiction and the unsubstantiated which often affects those who are desperate to find a cure for a terminal illness. Thanks for the insight and challenge of your book.

Format: Paperback
A novella that carries its weight, with a twist on every page.

When faced with the impossible choice between grief and happiness, what would you choose?

Author Schuh makes it clear in this tense psychological thriller that whatever can happen, will.

Format: Paperback
You don't need a degree in quantum physics to relish this mind-bending novella by Alberta author Eileen Schuh - all that is required is that you sit tight and hang on as desperate mother Chorie navigates time and space in an attempt to save her dying daughter.

Or maybe not. Maybe Chorie is just having a psychotic episode, and little Krystaline isn't really dying, after all. It's so hard to tell when reality keeps shifting, and the choices that Chorie has to make exact increasingly terrible, painful costs. What does a mother and wife do when her life starts falling apart and everything she thought she once held dear is taken from her? What happens if she sees the chance to tweak her version of reality and uncover a different outcome? What does she choose to do?

What would YOU choose to do?

A speeding bullet of a story, driven by crackling, emotionally-charged dialogue and strong, well-drawn characters, Schrödinger's Cat is a delicious back-and-forth between possibilities. Chorie's initial confusion is palpable and believable, and as she is swiftly motivated to create/manipulate change, the reader can't help but wonder what action he or she would take in Chorie's place. (As an aside, I loved the use of scent as a device to trigger Chorie's movement between realities - what a nice creative touch).

Oh, and the zinger of an ending? It will knock your socks off! (Don't say I didn't warn you).
