Dr. Bell's adventure in forensic chemistry began a long time ago in a galaxy far to the west of West Virginia. She began with a BS with a double major in chemistry and police science(criminal justice)at Northern Arizona University. She then ventured to the University of New Haven in Connecticut and obtained an MS in forensic science . After working for the New Mexico State Police for several years, she ventured north to Los Alamos National Laboratory where she was an environmental analytical chemist. She returned to university at the ripe old age of 29 at New Mexico State where she obtained her PhD in chemistry working under Dr. Gary Eiceman. Incidentally, three of the four research schools she has been affiliated with have colors of blue and gold, as was her junior high school. This could be fate, it could be destiny, or it could be coincidence.

Suzanne's love of writing began about the time when she was at NMSU, where the pressures of the doctoral program forced her to seek an outlet. She is the author of much mediocre and unpublished fiction and the joy she found in the act of writing led her to test the non-fiction and textbook waters. Currently, she has two projects underway in various stages of completion in addition to the books seen here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, Terrible Binding
Reviewed in the United States on September 7, 2015
I wish to start off by stating that the binding of this book is terrible. I had to purchase this book for a class and myself, as well as numerous colleagues, experienced the pages being removed from the spine of the book. I'm stating this as a precautionary tale since I was pretty unhappy buying this book new only to experience broken binding in multiple areas of the book within weeks of the purchase. If this book is a necessity, I would simply advise replacing the spine of the book or possibly removing the cover altogether, using a hole punch, and placing the pages into a 3-ring binder. Otherwise, you will continuously be annoyed at the book tearing at the seams. About the text itself, I appreciated the thorough detailing of the concepts, wide variety of forensic related topics, and informative mini history lessons. There were a few minor errors in chemical structure or vocabulary usage, but not enough to subtract from the overall appeal of the book since mistakes can be found in almost all books. Forensic Chemistry can be used as a great resource for both budding chemistry students and more esteemed scientists due to the excellent reference listing at the end of each chapter, as well as generalized and specific chemistry related information. If you can get past the binding issue, the book is fairly entertaining and enlightening.
