Local Columnist Releases Second Novel

Author Susan Crossett Dilks has returned with a second novel, “Love in Three Acts,” a tale involving a cellist and her friends.

Trying to capture the love of a longtime heart throb, their encounters take the reader from Libby’s early 20s in grad school to her late 60s, proving passion really doesn’t change with age.

Writing under her maiden name, Susan Crossett, the author will complete four years as a weekly columnist for the OBSERVER in Dunkirk next month. “Musings From The Hill” appears every Friday.

“Her Reason for Being,” published in 2008, follows two families in Buffalo over a 40-year period which includes the period of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Fredonia Opera House. Much of the plot revolves around the shooting in Lily Dale of a medium who has become very successful entertaining the ladies of Buffalo. It has been praised for its historical accuracy while the reader never gets the feeling history is being crammed down his throat.

Books are currently at Off the Beaten Path in Lakewood and online from Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.
