Guess Who's Coming to Murder is Everywhere!

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.




  1. I'd seen the new pictures on the side-bar, so assumed you'd been making use of your gaffer's hook. I look forward to 'meeting' our newest uh... writers!

  2. I have a request for Susan:


  3. So happy to welcome our new mates. I may be wrong about this, but wasn't it lovely of Stan to lend Susan his scarf for her photo?

  4. This blog continues to get better and even more amazing. The level and variety of posts is just amazing. It may seem like I'm blowing sunshine up your collective arses (is that inappropriate?), but I am thoroughly appreciative of your work.

    1. Jono, please feel free to continue on as our official MIE sunshine distributor. And, yes, it took me a moment to figure out how best to phrase that. :)

  5. Great. Look forward to reading their blogs -- and hope they are well-prepared for the comments!

  6. Juno and Kathy, it is readers like you who inspire us to write our best. The comments may range from friendly teasing to unruly teenage banter, but that's all part of the fun, for me anyway. But then I grew up with three brothers, which prepared me for Jeff and EvKa.

  7. Thanks Jeff - and everyone at Murder is Everywhere - for the introduction, and especially for letting me into the murderous clan!

  8. Also, Lisa - I hear and tremblingly obey. There will be seahorses. As well as ninjas.
