For Immediate Release – July 25, 2017: Susan St. John, author of Mad Mischief is thrilled to announce that her book has been selected to be included in the Spirited Woman Top 12 Book Pick List. Readers have been enthralled with St. John’s haunting tale of Sarah – a woman struggling with her erratic husband, the sadistic machinations of a safari guide, the unscrupulous actions of a Nairobi shopkeeper, and the enigmatic behavior of a world-renowned photographer who inexplicably appears when she is most in need of a guardian angel.
St. John used lessons and character insights from her various career roles as a vice president of sales for a division of a fortune 500 company, securities broker, and entrepreneur to create the rich saga of a woman on a transformational sub-Saharan African safari. Readers are taken on a journey with Sarah, and into themselves in this gripping story of love, deceit, power, obsession and ultimately, escape and redemption. Sarah has an epiphany on her very first day in the wild when she glimpses a matriarchal herd of elephants, which becomes the starting point for her life-altering rite of passage. The story paints a powerful portrait of a conflicted woman and an Africa we seldom see in contemporary literature.
“I think Mad Mischief and Spirited Woman are the perfect match,” commented St. John. “The word safari means ‘long journey.’ Just like the literal African exploration, life itself is a journey of unimaginable beauty and challenge. Mad Mischief tells of a journey unlike any other – one of the heart, mind and spirit. The women of Spirited Woman who are on their own paths of self-discovery will relish experiencing my tale of adventure, love, sadness and healing.”
