A terrible car crash sets things in motion for 31 year old Mackenzie when her critically injured husband, Nick, whispers warnings that someone from his past may attempt to harm or kill her after his passing. He urges her to travel to Philadelphia to his childhood home. Find James, he insists. It's the only way out.
So for those of you who don't know, I live pretty close to Philadelphia, PA. So when I found of Book of James was placed near there I wondered why. This was the author's response.
I was born and raised on a farm in upstate NY and moved to Philadelphia region when I was 17 years old.
I lived in south Philadelphia but worked out in the northwest section of the city. Everyday I traveled through Chestnut Hill. I loved the streets paved with Belgian block, the quaint stores built from stone, and the old mansions set back from the road. When I started writing The Book of James, it was set in a location that wasn’t named. I had this historic town in my head, with stone pathways and a trolley. I was writing and writing and then somewhere along the line it hit me. I had been describing the Chestnut Hill area without knowing it.
The village of Chestnut Hill is considered part of the city of Philadelphia proper but has a whole different feel to it. The house used in the story does not really exist. The Wissahickon creek park surrounds the edges of the area so I used those woods as a backdrop for the story. I took some artistic license, but I think most of it is fairly accurate.

OOOO I love the blues! Isn't it purdy? Tell me what you think below!
New friends and a new guy she’s falling in love with should make for a good summer, but Alexis’ nightmares and sleep walking are escalating and are populated with the wolves she sees lurking in the woods near her aunt’s home. The visions she’s seeing of blood and death has Alexis wondering what exactly she’s doing when she’s sleepwalking and the discovery of her aunt’s bloody shirt makes her question her Aunt Louise’s involvement in the recent deaths. Even the sheriff is giving Alexis accusing looks.
Before summer ends Alexis will learn an ominous truth. One that will change her life forever.
Suzanne CoxI remember writing my first stories when I was about nine or ten years old. I've been writing ever since. In 2002 I decided to seriously try and get some of my work published. On February 14th of 2005 I sold my first book, A Different Kind of Man, to Harlequin Superromance. While trying to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up, besides a writer, I went to college (alot) and worked a variety of jobs. I have a bachelor of arts in English with a minor in secondary education, a bachelor of science in nursing, a master of science in career and technical education with an emphasis in adult education and most recently, a master of science in nursing as a family nurse practitioner. I was also a National Board Certified Teacher in career and technical education. Along the way I've worked as a high school English teacher and an elementary teacher. I've worked as a registered nurse on a cardiac unit, brain injury rehab unit, and several different medical-surgical units. I've also done stints as a home health nurse and a commnunity health educator at a hospital, and many years as an allied health instructor at a high school career and technology center. Presently, I'm working full time as a family nurse practitioner at an inpatient psychiatric facility.
If I'm not writing I like to spend time reading. My husband and I share our home with our four legged children. Our boy and girl in puppy dog clothes, Toby and Sassy, who masquerade as Miniature Pinschers. We are also owned by three cats Chase, Jackson, and Spots. We are all terrorized by Gray Kitty, a stray who decided to stay and take over.
