Speaker Series: Susan Walter '91 | Good as Dead

Join us to hear Susan Walter '91 discuss her new book, Good as Dead, and the process of transitioning from Hollywood/movies/screenplays to writing a book.

sw2The winner of the (not terribly) prestigious WIFTS screenwriting award for All I Wish, the film she wrote and directed starring Sharon Stone (currently streaming on Netflix), Susan Walter is excited to add “first time novelist” to an eclectic resume that includes “failed concert violinist,” “unwatchable TV news reporter,” and “dazed mother to two teenage girls.” Groomed to be alone in a room for hours on end by a childhood spent practicing violin, writing a book came naturally to Susan, and her husband is hopeful she will finally have a reason to use her computer for something more productive than watching Red Sox baseball. A native of Boston, she suppresses her irresistible accent to avoid stink eye from sports fans across Los Angeles, where she now resides. She has an AB in government from Harvard, which she thus far fails to put to good use, and enjoys skiing, lazy bike rides, and wicked strong coffee. Susan has a book deal with Lake Union. Her second book, a thriller about a struggling actress who inherits a fortune from a stranger, is scheduled for publication in fall 2022.
