In Search of the
Write Space:
Susanne Winnacker


Susanne Winnacker studied law before she became a full-time writer. She lives with her husband, a dog and three bunnies in Germany. She loves coffee (in every shape and form), traveling and animals. When she isn't writing, you can usually find her in the kitchen, experimenting with new vegan dishes.

This week I’m delighted to have the lovely and talented Susanne Winnacker, author of the YA thriller IMPOSTOR, here to show us around her write space. (Hint: There are bunnies. BUNNIES!) I’ll hand the mic on over to her, but be sure to stick around until the end of the post, where you can win a signed hardcover of IMPOSTOR!

The Tour

This is the couch in our living room and pretty much my main workplace. It's very comfortable and the majority of my words get written here.

This is our kitchen table and the place where I usually start my workday with emails, social networking sites, coffee or a matcha latte, and one of my furry co-workers (Balu).

This is the side of our fridge and the spot I spent many hours staring at. It holds postcards from some of the destinations we visited in the last few years, as well as vacation photos.

This is the table in our garden and the place where I'll hopefully be working in the summer, if we get decent weather in Germany for a change.

Another one of my furry co-workers and always good for a distraction, our bunny "Cookie".

Gismo – he's been my co-worker for the last eight years, but sadly he lost his fight against sickness a few days ago. Now the other bunnies have to work twice as hard to cause the same amount of havoc!

Can Tessa pose as Madison . . . and stop a killer before it’s too late? 

Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI. When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again.

Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she’d do anything to keep. Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself.


Thanks to Susanne's generosity, I have one signed hardcover of IMPOSTOR to give away to one lucky Write Space fan. Contest is open INTERNATIONALLY to entrants over the age of 13. Use the Rafflecopter form below to enter!
