The Yellow Villa – Suzanne Blanc
(Macfadden, 1968)


It seems author Suzanne Blanc - sometimes mistakenly assumed to have been French (see comments) - wrote several crime novels set in Mexico, winning two Edgar Allan Poe awards and a French 'Grand Prix de Littérature Policière' in the process. Beyond that though, biographical info is not forthcoming.

I'm actually trying to get together some bio for Suzanne, who was a cousin of my mother's. All I know is she was definitely not French and was last living in Portland around 1960 when we were living in Seattle.

Thanks for your comment Phillip, and I'm sorry I can't be of more help, although I have updated the text of my post to relfect Suzanne's non-Frenchness.

Good luck with your research!
