Welcome to my site. I am Susan Joy Clark, a woman with her fingers in a few different pies. I am a former reporter, blogger, mystery writer, children’s author, puppeteer and game creator.
I am the author of the Jack Donegal Mystery series,
both available on Amazon. You can follow the crazy, humorous adventures of two buddies in the toy business, Jack Donegal and Andy Westin, who accidentally become amateur sleuths.
More of their adventures can be found in a mystery serial blog here on this site,
You can also download Part 1 of the prequel to this series,
when you subscribe to this site.
My female sleuth, Grace Darby, an English professor, has her own adventures in my short story ebook,
Most recently, I have released a new book outside of the mystery genre,
an inspirational picture book for children, that depicts how faith can move a mountain or, in Digory’s case, makes a mountain into a mole hill.
I’m the creator of mystery party games where the guests are detectives and the hosts and hostesses are suspects. One is available here, and others are on their way.
A new mystery game, The Case of Mysterious Messages
I’m a puppeteer who has always written her own material for church puppet ministry, and I am gradually beginning to sell a few of my puppet scripts here.
I blog on multiple topics. You might find anything from …
where you can read about Southernisms, Yogi Berrisms, and other “isms,” expressions and interesting word fun …
where you’ll find all sorts of uplifting articles with tips
and several other topics. (Check out the Blog submenu.)
I guess it’s hard to put me into a box. I’m like an actress who doesn’t want to be type-cast or like Shrek who tells Donkey that onions have layers and ogres have layers. (I’m not sure I want to be particularly compared to either an onion or an ogre.)
Thanks for visiting! Have fun and explore this site.
