  • About the Author
  • Two entwined mysteries unfold in two time periods in Singapore: one in the present, the other in the 1920s. Artist Maris Cousins has lived in Singapore for four years, but the sudden death of her mentor, Orchard Road gallery owner Peter Stone, causes her to stop painting and leave Singapore to reconnect with her family in Canada. There she becomes immersed in the fictional stories of love and betrayal from Singapore's past in first editions left to her by Stone, written by the famous early 20th-century author E. Sutcliffe Moresby. Drawn back to Singapore and the gallery, she searches for answers to the mystery of three people–a writer, his young wife and their baby who seem to be linked to Stone. But along the way Maris becomes caught up in circumstances involving smuggling and possibly murder.

  • S.P. Hozy (Penny) began writing her first novel in 1984. Some Comfort Among Us was a runner-up in the 2000 Chapters/Robertson Davies contest and was published in 2004. Hozy's most recent release, The Scarlet Macaw, has enjoyed ongoing critical acclaim since its release and two successful book tours in 2013. The newest edition is now available for the Asian market.
