Susan was delighted with this introduction in verse when she spoke in Michigan in April. Many thanks to Marcy Dailey for sharing it with us!
It's no Mystery

by Marcy Dailey
Rolling Prairie, IN
April, 2006

Who writes the best "who-dun-its"
Jam-packed with herbal lore?
Who feeds our needs for intrigue
Spiced with recipes galore?

Who travels here from Texas
To speak and sign our books?
Whose nationally acclaimed best sellers
Keep us pondering the crooks?

The culprit here's no mystery,
In fact she's quite well known;
This former English professor's
Reputation stands alone.

She's Ms. Susan Wittig Albert
Who writes of China Bayles.
From "Thyme of Death" to "Bleeding Hearts"
Our heroine prevails

Ms. Albert's further credits boast
Non-fiction and short stories,
With over 60 children's novels
Added to her glories.

Writing with her husband, Bill,
Under pen name "Robin Paige,"
Eleven Victorian mysteries
Now are all the rage.

Beatrix Potter's featured
In her newest mystery series.
(After this morning's program
You may offer up your queries.)

We're so honored by her presence,
It's not hard to deduce;
Ms. Susan Wittig Albert
I'm most pleased to introduce!
