A PUFF OF SMOKE

Puff of smoke

A puff of smoke.

A flicker of light.

Life is sweet.

Life is memorable.

Life is short.

Life is fleeting.

Gone in a puff of smoke.

Don’t close your eyes.

Keep them wide open.

Dangers are everywhere.

Danger can be lurking

right behind you.

Poof!

A life is gone.

Is it yours?

Only THE DEAD

have the power.

Only THE DEAD

hold the cure.

Only THE DEAD

know who’s next.

A PARADISE FROM HELL

mrgif:

Florida may seem like paradise.

Warm tropical breezes.

White sand.

Rolling waves.

Bright sunshine.

But wait until the storms.

The storms arrive

with a vengeance.

With a goal of murder

and destruction.

And what comes with

these winds?

THE DEAD.

They follow on the heels

of death and sorrow.

They destroy

whatever they touch.

So beware of the storms,

for they bring dark shadows.

THE DEAD are here to stay.

Walking alone at night in Oasis

can be very dangerous for your health.

The path along the beach is dark and deserted.

The trees are flailing their arms in the growing wind.

Sand from the beach is hitting you in the face.

Dark shadows are following your desperate path

through the wind-torn streets of town.

Where is it safe?

The church is losing its roof and windows.

Flying creatures are hovering close

to the buildings.

Nowhere is safe in Oasis

from the night’s fury.

THE DEAD GAME has begun.

MY INTERVIEW WITH ELLE KLASS

Friday, June 6, 2014

Susanne Leist author of The Dead Game

Please welcome Susanne Leist another extraordinary author! She will be present at the Facebook event Dreams, Fantasies, Nightmares, and Visions June 18-22.

Interview

Elle: Tell a little about yourself.

Susanne: My name is Susanne Leist.  I have an M.B. A. in Finance. I’ve worked as a Financial and Budget Analyst. I love to analyze companies and spread sheets and find hidden mysteries. These mysteries I’ve written up in extensive reports. 
     My second career is as a writer. Since I enjoy murder mysteries and the supernatural, I decided to write a book that combines both genre. I hope my readers love my book as much as I do.

Elle: What can you tell us about The Dead Game?

Susanne: The Dead Game is a paranormal thriller/fantasy. It takes place in a small town, called Oasis, on the coast of Florida. During the day, this town is a paradise for its residents and abundant tourists with its picturesque streets, wide-sand beach, and warm waters. However, at night, the town turns dark and deadly. Dark shadows roam the streets. Tourists begin to disappear and bodies turn up dead on the beach. The evil in this town revolves around End House. The younger residents are invited to a mysterious party at the deserted house, and that’s when the fun and games begin.

Elle: Give an overview of the protagonist (s) and any quirks they may have?

Susanne: Linda is the protagonist and she’s my voice. She wants to live in a peaceful town and make friends. When she encounters dangers, she steps back and lets her best friend, Shana, make all the decisions. She has a crush on the antagonist, Todd. She’s too timid to actively pursue him. But she does learn to stand up to him.

Elle: What are some other works you have published?


Susanne:The Dead Game is the first book that I have written. The book resolves the murder mystery, but at the same time, opens a Pandora box of new mysteries. Its surprise ending will lead to more surprises and to a second book.

Elle: What items do you require while writing?

Susanne: The only thing I require is complete silence without any distractions. This is exactly how I studied in school. I give 100% of my attention to my writing.

Elle: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go??

Susanne: I would love to travel everywhere in the world. The only countries I’ve visited so far are Canada, England, and Israel. There are so many places I would love to see.  At least I could visit them in books.

Elle: Do you have a favorite author or book?

Susanne: My favorite author is Brad Meltzer. It’s fun and easy to read his books. His words flow smoothly and keep me engrossed in the stories. I like his characters. He weaves his extensive knowledge of Washington into the story lines.
     I buy a book by the description on the back cover and not by the author’s name. This has led me to explore books written by a wide variety of authors. I found Brad Meltzer by his book’s description before I heard about him as an author. 

Elle: Describe yourself in three words.


Susanne: Honest, sensitive, and caring.

The Dead are here.

They have come for you.

They will show no mercy.

They will ride in the night.

The daylight is uncomfortable for them;

it burns their skin.

Stay indoors and lock your doors.

Maybe they will pass your house

without entering.

But you never know who they will select.

You might be one of their next victim’s.

Being dead can’t be so bad.

You might soon find out.

Creatures of the night have joined them.

These creatures come in many forms,

THE DEAD GAME — DAY 126

THE DEAD GAME -- DAY 125

THE DEAD GAME — DAY 125

The party at Diane’s house was perfect with perfect-looking guests.

Linda followed Todd through the thick crowd of people. Guests were chatting and laughing; some held plates while others held glasses of wine. The men looked dignified, dressed in black tuxedos; and the women were exquisite in their fancy gowns and jewels.
All the guests were tall and good-looking: the men were handsome and muscular, and the women were beautiful with tall, shapely figures. She spotted redheads, blondes, and brunettes; each person unique and gorgeous in his or her own way.
A loud commotion by the front door broke into her reverie. She turned to watch Hank walk into the party with a young beautiful blonde on his arm. A throng of people surrounded them, waiting to be introduced to Hank’s knock-out date.
The striking blonde was wearing a white, low-cut dress that was much too tight and clingy, decided Linda. She looked over at Todd to see if he was staring at this new beauty as he’d done earlier with Shana. Instead, she found him staring down at her. Linda hoped that the smirk on his face didn’t mean that he’d figured out the full extent of her errant thoughts about Hank’s girlfriend. She usually had only kind thoughts about people, but this time she didn’t know why she felt this sudden hostility toward Hank’s female friend.
She turned to Hank. “Please introduce us to your lovely friend.”
“Frances, please meet the residents of Oasis,” said Hank as he introduced the gorgeous woman by his side.
“How…how…do you know each other?” asked Mike, openly ogling her.
Hank responded with a hint of humor in his eyes, “Frances is my daughter who is visiting from college this week.”
“Oh.” Linda swallowed. From the corner of her eye, she watched Todd hold back a laugh. Annoyed with him, she looked away.
When she spun back around, she noticed that Hank and his daughter had already disappeared. She could see them dancing in the middle of the dance floor. He must have led her away pretty quickly—most probably before Mike had a chance to ask any more questions. Hank definitely didn’t like being interrogated. She had learned that earlier during her very unpleasant encounter with him at his shop.
