Author Biography

From the Author

Thank you for taking a look at The Plan. This was my first adventure into writing fiction, and I have to admit it was tough. It took more time to complete than I ever anticipated, but it was still worth the effort. What kept me going? I knew this book was inside of me; I had been carrying around the stories of two, black murdered Southern lawyers for a number of years and wanted to do something with what I had discovered. For years, I researched and wrote everything that I could find on the murders of Cleve McDowell of Drew, Mississippi and Henry S. Mims of Montgomery, Alabama. When I exhausted all information and wrote what I could, I still had no answers. So I put my creative mind to work in the context of historical, paranormal, alternative fiction and came up with The Plan. Please enjoy. And please write a review. I look forward to hearing from you. Susan

About the Author

Susan Klopfer and her husband once lived on the grounds of Mississippi's Parchman Penitentiary where Fred was the state's chief of private prison psychologists. While there, Susan roamed the Delta, visiting older people in small cotton hamlets who'd lived through the modern civil rights movement (1955 to 1968). She became intrigued with this era, after learning new stories surrounding the murders of Emmett Till, Medgar Evers, Cleve McDowell, Birdia Keglar, Adlena Hamlett and others who were all key participants to bringing change in those turbulent years.

Susan later wrote The Emmett Till Book, Who Killed Emmett Till, and Where Rebels Roost: Mississippi Civil Rights Revisited (all nonfiction) before writing The Plan, her first foray into fiction. She describes her latest work as paranormal, historical, alternative fiction.

Susan Klopfer lives and writes in Cuenca, Ecuador. She is currently investigating the alleged kidnapping and murder of Boris Weisfeiler, a Russian immigrant to the United States and a former math professor at Penn State University, as well as Colonia Dignidad, a torture camp in Chile. With a unique focus on remote viewing, this yet named book will be a sequel to The Plan, the first work in her Civil Rights Mystery Sleuth action adventure series.

Susan is a graduate of Hanover College in Communication and Computer Science, and Indiana Wesleyan University, where she received a Master's Degree in Business Administration.

The Plan (Civil Rights Mystery Sleuth)


The tight bond between Clinton and Joe, two gay, black lawyers, is broken when Joe is reportedly found hanged. Moore believes Joe Means was tortured and murdered, and that his and Joe’s shared obsession—investigating the cover-ups of various murders and assassinations of civil rights activists—is the reason.
