Saratoga: Susan Elizabeth Phillips "Heroes Are My Weakness"
Northshire Bookstore, Sunday, August 31 at 6pm
New York Times bestselling author - and romance superstar - Susan Elizabeth Phillips will read from her new novel - a book packed with her sassy wit and dazzling charm

He's a reclusive writer whose imagination creates chilling horror novels. She's a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids' puppet shows. He knows a dozen ways to kill his characters with his bare hands. She knows a dozen ways to kill an audience with laughs. But she's not laughing now.

Annie Hewitt has arrived on Peregrine Island in the middle of a snowstorm and at the end of her resources. She's broke, dispirited, but not quite ready to give up. Her red suitcases hold the puppets she uses to make her living: sensible Dilly, spunky Scamp, and Leo, the baddest of bad guys. Her puppets, the romantic novels she loves, and a little bit of courage are all she has left.

Annie couldn't be more ill prepared for what she finds when she reaches Moonraker Cottage or for the man who dwells in Harp House, the mysterious mansion that hovers above the cottage. When she was a teenager, he betrayed her in a way she can never forget or forgive. Now they're trapped together on a frozen island along with a lonely widow, a mute little girl, and townspeople who don't know how to mind their own business.

Is he the villain she remembers, or has he changed? Her head says no. Her heart says yes.

It's going to be a long, hot winter.

Short biography
Susan Elizabeth Titus was born 11 December 1948 in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, daugther of Louesa Coate and John Aller Titus. She met her husband, Bill Phillips, on a blind date while in college. She obtained a BFA in Theater Arts from Ohio University and taught high school until her first child was born. She then became a stay-at-home mom.

She started to write by accident when her husband’s job moved them from Ohio to New Jersey. She and her best friend, Claire Kiehl Lefkowitz, were avid readers. They decided that they would write a book together. With blind luck, they worked their way through a story and Dell bought that manuscript published under the pseudonym of Justine Cole (reedited under their real names). Susan had been bitten by the writing bug and continued to write when Claire moved to the southwest. Her subsequent novels have gone on to win awards and land on bestseller lists. In addition to being the only two-time recipient of the Romance Writers of America's prestigious Favorite Book of the Year award, she also holds Romantic Times Career Achievement Award.

Susan and her husband live in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. She is the proud mother of two grown sons.
