We, at Murder is Everywhere, are pleased and excited to briefly introduce you to the two newest members of our merry band: Susan I. Spann, whose first post will appear this Sunday, February 1st (alternating Sundays with Zoe), and Jørn Lier Horst, who will alternate Wednesdays with Lisa, beginning February 4th. Their photos are already up!
I’m sure they’ll be introducing themselves in greater detail, but here’s just a taste of the new perspectives coming to MIE, starting this weekend.
Susan Spann grew up in Santa Monica, immersed herself in Japanese and Chinese studies at Boston’s Tufts University, obtained a law degree, and returned to California to practice law, traditional archery, martial arts, horseback riding, online gaming, and raise seahorses. Oh, yes, and write the terrific, much praised and award recognized, Shinobi Mystery series featuring Hiro Hattori, a sixteenth-century ninja who brings murderers to justice with the help of Father Mateo, a Portuguese Jesuit priest.
Norway’s pride and joy, Jørn Lier Horst, is a Former Senior Investigating Officer in Norway’s Vestfold Police district. He is author of the best selling Chief Inspector William Wisting series and winner of both the Glass Key Award for best Nordic Crime Novel and Sweden’s prestigious Martin Beck Award.
