Heidi Schussman Gilbert was born in a small Northern California coastal town to a police officer and a mother who gave up med school to raise a family. She was raised to think on her feet and view adventure as way of life. She starting shooting when she was five years old and got spanked by the principal in second-grade for getting in a fight with a boy who was bullying on her big brother. Schussman started working when she was eleven years old and started her first business when she was thirteen selling flower arrangements at a flea market.
Now Schussman's favorite past-time is traveling with her husband of twenty-eight years. Travel for H. Schussman is usually a cultural immersion, actually living with families in Spanish speaking countries or in Italy. When in the tropics, they SCUBA dive every chance they get. The rest of the Schussman's time is divided between work, gardening, exercise, and of course writing. She carefully researches weaponry and police/military intervention. Schussman believes research is a critical component of writing conspiracy theory. All good conspiracies are based on solid facts... that is what makes them believable.
H. Schussman has published two conspiracy novels. COUNTERPART is a complex Russian conspiracy. This is the introduction of the popular characters, Sean and Sport. These two captured the hearts of readers, so EL TIBURON brings them back by request. EL TIBURON is a conspiracy set in Central America, mostly Guatemala.
H. Schussman also writes three blogs: A Dashing Bold Adventure (dashingboldadventure.blogspot.com) was created in 2007 and is a rundown of their adventures while traveling throughout Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and Europe. The Wine Tribe (the1stmiracle.blogspot.com) covers a monthly food and wine pairing competition. Author H. Schussman (hschussman.blogspot.com) is devoted to other authors and their endeavors. She hosts interviews and writes book reviews on that site.
