Susanna Solomon has been at this writing business a long time, but it was only when Mildred Rhinehart, 82, shoved her way into Susanna’s heart and mind that she realized it was time to sit down and listen. Mildred’s long-suffering husband Fred was next. Then awkward Alice, Mildred’s granddaughter, came for tea and was soon followed by the new cop on the block, as well as a sixteen-year-old kid in love with driving and girls. Susanna had found her sweet spot, and her characters found a home.
A year and a half later, she has a short story collection from Harper Davis Publishers, called Point Reyes Sheriff’s Calls. There are 80 stories, and they all start with an entry from the “Sheriff’s Calls” column.

Susanna Solomon has been a resident of Marin County for many decades. During the day she is an electrical engineer and designs electrical systems for buildings such as Cowgirl Creamery, Novato Hospital, Marin County Veteran’s Auditorium and many, many more. She’s been an engineer for 25 years, and graduated from San Francisco State University in 1987.
Many of her stories are humorous, some are sad, and some are just quirky. How can she run out of material with the reality-challenged people of West Marin as her inspiration?
