Who is Susan Klopfer?

Susan has worked as a journalist on daily newspapers in Texas, Missouri and Nevada, and as an acquisitions and development editor for Prentice Hall Computer Books. She won state journalism awards for her investigative reporting on nondisclosed private/public partnerships in Missouri and received a Global eBook award for Who Killed Emmett Till. She wrote Abort! Retry! Fail! a creative computer book that was named an alternate selection by The Book-of-the-Month Club.



“I learned many of these stories in prison …”
Susan Klopfer and her husband once lived on the grounds of Mississippi’s Parchman Penitentiary where Fred was the state’s chief of private prison psychologists. While there, Susan roamed the Delta, visiting older people in small cotton hamlets who’d lived through the modern civil rights movement (1955 to 1968). She became intrigued with this era, after learning new stories surrounding the murders of Emmett Till, Medgar Evers, Cleve McDowell, Birdia Keglar, Adlena Hamlett and others who were all key participants to bringing change in those turbulent years.
Susan later wrote The Emmett Till Book, Who Killed Emmett Till, and Where Rebels Roost: Mississippi Civil Rights Revisited (all nonfiction) before writing The Plan, her first foray into fiction. She describes her latest work as paranormal, historical, alternative fiction.
Susan Klopfer lives and writes in Cuenca, Ecuador. She is currently investigating the alleged kidnapping and murder of Boris Weisfeiler, a Russian immigrant to the United States and a former math professor at Penn State University, as well as Colonia Dignidad, a torture camp in Chile. With a unique focus on remote viewing, this yet named book will be a sequel to The Plan, the first work in her Civil Rights Mystery Sleuth action adventure series.
Susan is a graduate of Hanover College in Communication and Computer Science, and Indiana Wesleyan University, where she received a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
