About the Author

National award-winning author Penny Goetjen writes murder mystery and suspense novels where the settings play as prominent a role as the engaging characters. A self-proclaimed eccentric known for writing late into the night, transfixed by the allure of flickering candlelight, Ms. Goetjen embraces the writing process, unaware what will confront her at the next turn. She rides the journey with her characters, often as surprised as her readers to see how the story unfolds. Fascinated with the paranormal, she usually weaves a subtle, unexpected twist into her stories. When her husband is asked how he feels about his wife writing murder mysteries, he answers with a wink, "I sleep with one eye open.


"The Woman Underwater is a vivid and poignant story of a woman haunted by an unsolved mystery from her past. This book, where surprises and suspicious characters abound, is for anyone who's ever been told to move on from something they knew in their heart they shouldn't. I gulped it down in a single day."

-Megan Collins, author of The Family Plot, The Winter Sister, and Behind the Red Door

"Goetjen excels at exploring the depths of characters pushed to their limits, and confidently blends high-stakes emotion and hints of the supernatural in this page-turning tale of suspense."

-Shari Randall, author of the Agatha Award-winning Lobster Shack Mystery series

"The Woman Underwater is a gripping mystery with an engaging cast of characters, lots of unexpected twists, and enticing hints of the paranormal. Victoria is a thoughtfully-rendered character, resolute in her search for answers in a years-old mystery that turned her life upside-down."

-Emily Arsenault, author of When All the Girls are Sleeping and The Last Thing I Told You

"Goetjen's setting is bucolic Connecticut, a perfect contradiction for the internal chaos Victoria experiences while living a life without resolution, and a surprising amount of truly thrilling scenes. Red herrings are sprinkled artfully throughout. . . . emboldened by Goetjen's ability to portray her characters as imperfect human beings yet likeable in most instances . . . a challenging and courageous task for a writer."

-C. Michele Dorsey, author of the Sabrina Salter Mysteries and the Danny and Nora O'Brien Mysteries

"An absorbing, dreamy, water imagery-infused mystery."

-Kirkus Reviews
