Susan Beales first novel, The Good Guy, sold to John Murray at auction. It is set in New England in the years leading up to the sexual revolution: a suburban husband and father constructs a perfect double life, but when fantasy collides with reality, he is not the only one caught in the ensuing maelstrom. Based on a true story, the book explores the human capacity for deception, particularly self-deception.
Susan Beale was brought up on Cape Cod but lives in the UK. She is a recent graduate of the Bath Spa MA in creative writing.
