Zanne Marie Dyer is a first-time, fiction novelist who lives in Daytona Beach, Florida, with her husband. Though her career in Clinical Christian Counseling was satisfying, she became increasingly interested in court-appointed cases, and the psychology of criminal minds. She finally gave into her dream to write crime suspense novels, leaving her former career behind. She found both the skills and support for this move from the members of Word Weavers International, an organization that works to advance Christian writers. Suzanne’s knowledge of psychology, human behavior, and the criminal mind lends itself to a unique understanding of characterization in her novel. Though her first passion is writing, other interests include painting ocean scenes, beach combing for shells used in jewelry crafting, and watching old black and white movie classics . . . but naturally, crime shows are a big favorite. Her husband, Craig Dyer, is a successful criminal trial attorney who is eager to jump in and add his knowledge of legal and criminal procedure to her writing. With a life-time of Christian ministry to help lost souls, from bikers to bankers, both she and her husband, have made a surprising discovery: The healthier and happier a person is, the lighter and more transparent they are; but the meaner and sicker of soul, the more darkly complex they become. Her novel Dark Motives, and its mix of colorful characters, is a quest to help unveil the sinister secrets of a mind without God.
