About the Author: Susan Berliner

I have been a nonfiction writer for nearly my entire career. I had originally planned to be an elementary school teacher, but left after a year to become a newspaper reporter for Fairchild Publications. I covered men's retailing for Daily News Record, a men's wear/textile trade newspaper, which was the "brother" paper of Women's Wear Daily.

After my children were born, I switched to freelance writing—mainly in education—publishing book series dealing with editing skills, language arts, and standardized testing and creating teachers' guides, student activity sheets, and test passages. I also freelanced as a local reporter for the North County News, a weekly newspaper in Yorktown Heights, New York.

When I returned to work full-time, I became the promotion manager for the Yorktown PennySaver, a job I held for 20 years. After leaving the Pennysaver, I became a novelist. I'm the author of four supernatural thrillers: "DUST," "Peachwood Lake," "The Disappearance," and "Corsonia," and "THE SEA CRYSTAL and Other Weird Tales," a collection of short stories.

I live with my husband, Larry, in Yorktown Heights, where I am writing "The Touchers," an end-of-the-world series.

On a quiet summer day, 13-year-old Kady Gonzalez sees an armored silver fish leap high in Peachwood Lake. She thinks it's an awesome sight - until, a few minutes later, Kady watches in horror as the same jumping fish savagely attacks a neighbor in his rowboat. That's the start of the malevolent fish's war on the pristine Connecticut lake.

As the casualties mount, Kady, an aspiring writer, is befriended by Monique, a sassy young newspaper reporter. In addition to covering the fish story, Monique counsels the motherless girl on the frightening problems of growing up, especially how to deal with the hurtful taunts of Hannah, a popular classmate.

While the mysterious fish continues to attack anyone venturing into the water, town officials desperately attempt to destroy the demonic creature. "Will they succeed without having to sacrifice Peachwood Lake - and will "Fraidy Kady" succeed in conquering her own personal demons?"
