Wingate realized her dreams when she entered the world of writing. At first, she only wrote songs and poetry but then her writing blossomed when she tried her hand at fiction.

Since then, Susan has written several plays, one screenplay, one short story collection and seen novels with two more scheduled to be written in 2010. In 2008, she started writing a memoir.

A lover of the arts, Susan draws and paints abstracts using oil as her favored medium. She has taken up playing the violin (it’s been a squeakly start) and she loves the theatre. Susan lives in Washington State.

My Review:
Easy As Pie, goes down best with a little whipped cream and a big glass of milk!
I love “small town” stories, I love mysteries, and I love good eats, so
Easy As Pie, stays on my menu.

The only thing that really bothered me is the language

sprinkled here and there… I just HATE the F word, and I 
truly believe that it could have been left out.
For the most part, Wingate’s words paint vivid pictures,
of even the most mundane situations
of situations, and the story kept me on my toes.

Easy As Pie was a quick read, and  I was rewarded with not only
a satisfying ending…but some recipes as well.

Thanks Pump Up Your Book Promotions
for including me on the tour.

I received a free copy of this book,
for the purpose of this review.
