"What a read! Set in dusty small town America in the 1950’s, this unique murder mystery begins with all the “family values” front and center. But then the veneer begins to peel off, exposing the inner lives of utterly memorable characters who run the gamut from psychotic to genuinely loving. In two words, it’s nostalgic and creepy. Unlike most mysteries, we know who did it, but are wrapped up in the character’s lives all the more because they don’t know what we know - and are in danger. A total winner! – Susan Stewart Potter, JOA Productions
Once again, I was captured by a Nancy Schuepbach novel. You are taken in from page one and cannot put it down. Her characters come alive and are as real as the people next door. – Dr. Joe and Marilee Leach
Nancy Schuepbach dissects interpersonal mysteries and murder using vivid descriptions as the tools to display the many layers of truth. – Scott Buse, Father
Nancy Schuepbach has created another riveting, hard-to-put-done murder mystery. The plot’s skillful blend of rapid cuts from time and place has you eager for what’s around the next turn as it sometimes teases you with glimpses ahead but at other times jolts you with complete surprises. But more than the plot’s fascinating twists, Nancy carefully explores the psychological complexities of her characters, while embedding them all in a carefully created, beautiful, and utterly compelling word portrait of small town America. Just as in Murder at the Mane Tamers, Nancy’s characters are intriguing, distinctive, and often disturbing. – Barry Phegan, Ph.D., author."

Nancy McMillan Schuepbach was born in Seattle, WA in 1943 but has lived her adult life in Marin County just north of San Francisco. Her grandfather, Edward Harper Thomas was a well-known Northwest writer, editor, and correspondent with numerous books and articles to his credit. Her Aunt Mary was a regular writer for several magazines.   Nancy’s background is mostly in music. As a composer and piano teacher she continues her studies in classical and jazz piano. Her CD Solo features all original compositions.  She also paints.   Yearning to write stories, Nancy has found that the writing process is much the same as composing music… note by note, or word by word. Notes or words strung together, reworked, played with, and edited come out pretty much the same. For the reader or the listener they evoke feelings, emotions, and memories.   Nancy McMillan Schuepbach is the author of the much talked about novel, Murder at the Mane Tamers, a comedy about six old women who accidentally kill the mayor of their small town then don’t know what to do with his body. She has two other about-to-be-published novels, The Many Friends of Mrs. Greenpants and a children’s story, Tommy’s Secret. Several other novels are in-the-works.
