Suzie's House

This is the series of fictional posts that lead to my first published book. I post a new episode each Friday.

It’s about Suzie, a woman forced to turn her home into a boarding house by financial woes, and the people who live there. She has a teenage son named Ben. Her best friend, Miranda, talked her into doing it and is one of the renters. Vin, a private investigator also rents a room, as does his best friend, Drew.

You can access it in three ways. First, there is a table of contents at the bottom of this page. This is the quickest and easiest way to reach earlier episodes.

Second, you can pull up the individual episodes by clicking on the thing in my sidebar that says “categories”. A menu will drop down. Scroll down until you get to Suzie’s House. This will present all the posts in reverse order.

Most of the older episodes have arrows at the bottom for previous and next episodes. I have to place these by hand, so the newer ones may not have one.

Comments are open going all the way back. Please leave a comment.

The naughty bits are all posted ONLY in the Yahoo group for Suzie’s House. You must subscribe in order to read them. The group is only used for Suzie’s House episodes that go beyond a PG13 rating. I do not use the group in any other way, and do not use it very often. You are not allowed to comment there. If you have trouble subscribing, contact me at Alice Audrey J at yahoo dot com and I’ll try to get your squared away.

You do NOT need to read this entire thing in order to understand what is going on in the story. I try to make each episode stand on it’s own. I also tend to write in story arcs. To make it easier, I’ve broken this into sections to represent more or less where new arcs begin. I’ve also put in bold episode that I end up referring to often.
