I would like to have a Mood Ring car. On days when I feel depressed, it would be blue. When someone got a better review than me, it would be green. On happy days, it would be all the colors of the rainbow and no cop would give me a ticket.
As a thriller writer, I wanted to see a psychopath every day on TV so I could take notes. So. What happened? I now HATE PSYCHOPATHS!!!!!!I can only hope I can write psychopaths with a joyous heart again someday.

Am writing today. It is (of course) a nightmare. It is due tonight, half done. I have the self-esteem of a cattle tick. So I do what one does: lurch and flail onward, butt in chair, trying to make each paragraph and passage ever so slightly better. And damn, if that isn’t enough.
The reviews for THE DEATH OF VULTURES are in, my latest novel, which is scheduled for release early Fall, September 15, 2018. I couldn't be more excited. Of course, you know that THE DEATH OF VULTURES is a psychological women's suspense thriller is scheduled for release this September.As many of you know, women's fiction, specifically stories bending toward family drama and mystery, has always resonated in me. Since a kid, I enjoyed watching movies like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, reading Tennessee Williams, books like A Doll's House, anything Hitchcock. Those stories got into my bones. I love stories about the human condition where family and character are central to the story's theme.
After checking the book's page on Goodreads, THE DEATH OF VULTURES has gotten only 5-star reviews. I'm blown away. An author never feels like they're going to hit a home run on any of their stories so when one is received with such aplomb, well, it's totally humbling. Anyway, I'm thrilled, couldn't be happier. I'm so grateful to my readers that this story resonated with them. It's a serious topic and an important one so I'm happy people are connecting with it.

The Reviews for THE DEATH OF VULTURES Are In
“I’m still reeling after finishing Susan Wingate’s latest, THE DEATH OF VULTURES. Brilliantly written, here is a tale that grips you by the throat from the opening prologue to the gut-punch of an ending. Both tender and brutal, intelligent and visceral, each page carries a reader further down a harrowing path to a conclusion both inevitable yet also shocking. This novel will leave an indelible mark on your soul. Don’t miss it.” —James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Demon Crown“In THE DEATH OF VULTURES, bestselling author Susan Wingate delivers a spellbinding page-turner. Harrowing and heartbreaking, this is the story of a grief-stricken mother's tenacity in her efforts to bring to justice the monsters responsible for her daughter's drug overdose. Meg Storm is a heroine you can really root for. Once you pick up this riveting thriller, you won't want to put it down.” —Kevin O’Brien, New York Times Bestselling Author“The author writes with a shrewd, confident style; the characters’ experiences are often perceptible to readers. For example, Meg endures an emotional reaction as physical anguish: “This new pain was like a shot to the chest, radiating down and dark, through the soles of her feet.” Violence is stark but fleeting, as the profound tale is more about loss than revenge. A bleak but undeniably affecting family tale.” —Kirkus Reviews, August 2, 2018“Susan Wingate is guilty. She caused me to lose a full night's sleep. That's how engrossing her newest novel, The Death of Vultures, is. Like an onion, the layers keep peeling away revealing new twists and turns that keep you glued to the page. Her writing is impeccable and the world she creates, while at times as tragic as a car wreck, is both haunting and impossible to ignore." —New York Times and USA Today Thriller Award winning author, Vincent Zandri“When the book starts out with the death of her daughter, you’d think things couldn’t get much worse for Meg—but they do. More deaths, manipulation, revenge, and redemption all play important roles in Susan Wingate’s fast-paced masterpiece THE DEATH OF VULTURES. Susan’s deftly controlled writing style has the reader feeling everything the character goes through—which is exhausting and wonderful.” —Terry Persun, Award Winning & Amazon Bestselling Novelist“In the tradition of GONE GIRL, Susan Wingate’s THE DEATH OF VULTURES is both layered and nuanced. Like a striptease. the story unwinds itself, building one fear above the other. She has created a world both surreal and REAL, where regrets don’t just swallow you whole… They KILL you.” -JCarson Black, NY Times Bestseller, www.jcarsonblack.com“Susan Wingate creates emotions one should feel when reading. The characters are so real, the situations, especially perceptions people have about situations and how these have an effect on decisions, are so raw and emotional. This isn't an easy book, but it's beautiful because this could be happening to you.” - Elsa H, Reviewer“Drugs are going through the door and she lost her daughter and then her husband to the dangers of drug addiction. The law is struggling to cope and they use her to go inside to give them information. What will happen to her? See by reading.” -Tanya, Goodreads reviewer“Amazing book!!!! I could not put this book down from the first page to the last.” -Tara J., NetGalley reviewer“This was a hard book to read. I lost two brothers to drugs. I think it’s a great book, sad beyond words, but great in that it goes into detail about what is going on in this country. It’s a story of a mother’s love, a wife’s determination and the hurt and anger she has. A must read for everyone especially if you have lost someone to drugs.” -Linda M., Netgalley reviewer
