Meet Eileen



Eileen Schuh has published two novels in her young adult BackTracker series, THE TRAZ and FATAL ERROR, as well as an adult SciFi novella, SCHRÖDINGER'S CAT.  THE TRAZ is also available in a School Edition.
THE TRAZ explores issues such as grief, depression, illicit drugs, and gangs while FATAL ERROR looks at guilt, blame, betrayal and ultimately, forgiveness. The third book in the series, FIREWALLS will be officially released February 2014. Written to inspire adolescents and the adults in their lives, Schuh is pleased to have been invited to present her BackTracker novels as teaching tools to at-risk adolescents in venues such as the North Slave Young Offenders Facility and the St. Paul Alternate Education Centre.

SCHRÖDINGER'S CAT with its tangled relationships, weaves emotion into the science of multi-universes. Two worlds, two lives—too much for one woman.
Schuh lives in Canada’s northern boreal forest and draws her inspiration from the wilderness, her family and friends, and her adopted community of St. Paul, Alberta.



Details of Fatal Error



Four lives intertwined by fate may lead to one fatal error…

When the police chopper rescues her from The Traz biker compound, fourteen-year-old Katrina thinks she’s escaping her brutal past. But she soon discovers that the cops know her darkest secrets, and she slides into an emotional hell of horror and guilt.

Shrug, the undercover officer who recruited her to the gang, struggles to undo the harm he has inflicted, but his attempts to protect Katrina spiral out of control. His boss, Sergeant Kindle, knows nothing can be forgotten and much must be forgiven before Katrina or Shrug will be free from the aftermath of the police sting.

Complicating matters, Katrina's dream relationship with another undercover officer, Chad, hits a major firewall when she discovers he's engaged. Just one fatal error could send Katrina, and everyone else involved, down a path of destruction that could leave no survivors.



A Taster…



Cooper stuffed his hands into his pockets and stared down at her. For some reason, the look in his eyes made her feel like crying. She shifted uncomfortably and lifted her chin. Shrug had taught her it was dangerous to be weak.
"What do we do now?" she asked.
"Let's find a quiet place to talk. It's warm out. How about we walk down by the river?"
Outside, Katrina drank in the astounding beauty of the Alberta September. Across the river, gold leaves glittered behind the red berry bushes lining the bank. Interspersed in the dazzle of fall colours were the spruce trees, stretching their deep green toward the rich, late-afternoon sun. The sky was a cloudless blue dome and the air was thick with the pungent scent of autumn. Fallen leaves, some mottled and others striped, crunched beneath their feet.
This was the time of year when she used to go hunting with Grandpa. Hunting ducks and geese involved autumn skies and sunrises and sunsets. And colourful reflections in ponds. She'd always remember the calls of the birds echoing off cool morning mists and the warmth of a retriever, shivering with excitement at the chase.
But those moments were gone.
When they were away from traffic and pedestrians, Cooper motioned her to stop. She took a spot on a park bench and watched the diamond sparkles racing downstream on top of the wavelets.
Cooper joined her on the bench. "Sergeant Kindle wants to question you about a murder."

She froze and the world became deathly quiet.

  1. Second time of trying.... I loved this passage. It's very evocative. I could see the colours, smell the peaty autumn smells and recall seeing water looking like, a silver veil of flashing diamonds. Lulled by the beauty of the scene, it is all the more chilling when we get to the final two sentences....
