The Ginseng Conspiracy

A Kay Driscoll Mystery

Written by Susan Bernhardt

Meet the Author

Susan Bernhardt is an author living in Wisconsin. Like Kay Driscoll in her cozy mysteries, The Ginseng Conspiracy and Murder Under the Tree, Susan is a retired public health nurse who volunteers at her local free clinic. An avid reader of mysteries, she is a member of Sisters in Crime, Inc. She is also a member of the Wisconsin Writers Association. Her other published works include "October 31st", "Midsummer", and "John and Madeline".

Susan Bernhardt is a "Featured Wisconsin Author" in the Wisconsin Author Review Magazine and The Ginseng Conspiracy is a "Featured Wisconsin Book."

Susan's town in northern Wisconsin was an inspiration for the quaint setting of her novel. She lives with her husband, William, and has two sons, Peter and David, and lovely daughters-in-law, Ashley and Nicole.

When not writing, Susan loves to travel, bicycle, kayak, and create culinary magic in her kitchen. She works in stained-glass, daydreams in her organic garden, stays up late reading mysteries, and eats lots of chocolate.
