Book Blurb:


Escape to Tasmania they said … But what was supposed to be a dream for Ric Peters and Elaina Williams has turned into a nightmare.


The Devil’s Island is living up to its name, serving up the ghosts of its dark past, while Ric is haunted by his own demons. The truth is unravelling, and death is closing in from all sides. And now, it's stalking Elaina.


Ric's past is catching up to him, with a vengeful man seeking retribution for a catastrophic blunder in Indonesia. Ric has kept a secret hidden from Elaina, fearing that she will not … cannot, forgive him. That after all they’ve been through, he’s not the man she believes him to be.


In the shadows, a hitman lurks ¬… waiting for the time to strike, unafraid of collateral casualties.


As corrupt officials pull strings and innocents are sold, Ric and Elaina’s life together is threatened. Detective Inspector Jack McMasters races against time to piece together the clues before it's too late.


A sociopath and an anguished man are closing in. As the lightning strikes, the uncertainties remain … revenge, redemption, or devastation?


Tree Pose is delivered hot with twists and turns, mixed with secrets and attractions, tossed with suspense and revenge, then blended with classic storytelling.


The third book in the Yoga Mat Mysteries series takes readers on a thrilling ride through the beautiful and mysterious island of Tasmania, Australia. The story follows Dead Man's Pose, set in Sydney, and Cobra Pose, set in Brisbane.


BUY Tree Pose for a captivating mystery with murders, ghosts, and a past that won't stay buried.


A special note from the authors:


“Lose yourself in our stories, get to know our characters, prepare to be entertained, travel to another place for a while. Come to the world of make-believe, to believe in afternoons of delight and evenings of being enchanted.”


Yoga Mat Mysteries is a series of books that are literary, carefully crafted, that rely on strong characterisations, richness of language and the sound and arrangements of words to entertain and enlighten the reader.


We believe our writing has a fresh approach to storytelling that is not bound by traditional rules or genres. While we follow some aspects of Crime Noir, we regard this as a spice to enhance the writing. Our writing stands on its own legs and we are not afraid of being different.  


Because we don’t follow the rules, anything can happen in our stories and usually does. We push boundaries, we think differently, we challenge the status quo.


Our writing is a composite of being entertaining while being introspective to help the reader make sense of the world by exploring our characters. Which leads to the fact that our stories are character driven with some plot. The characters are important in our writing sometimes more than the plot. The characters are explored, defined and in some cases dissected.


The story takes you through the action but more importantly it shows the characters in action and how the actions and plot change the characters.  We weave a story with the strands of mystery, adversity, evil, romance, love, change and light into a fabric to wrap around the reader as they read.


One final note.  As writers we physically ground truth every millimetre of the locations of our stories and the places we write about. Topography, geography, roads, transportation, services, government, physical layout, timing distances and locales.  We insure the accuracy and realism of our stories.

Author Biography:


What do a woman, who used to train military personnel how to shoot straight, and a man, skilled at eradicating all sorts of hazardous materials safely, have in common? Both were designated law enforcement officers and they have now written three ‘knock ’em dead’ books and produced three audiobooks … together!


Susan Rogers


Susan Rogers already knew she was a writer at age six, but as an adult she took a major detour in becoming a commissioned naval officer and  a designated law enforcement officer. She has conducted sting operations, run extensive weapons training programs and directed the restoration of a Presidential yacht. In between, she has written a number of  books. Susan’s work has taken her into  government operations in the United States, Australasia, the South Pacific and the Middle East.  She has  run health and safety operations for multi-billion-dollar projects in Abu Dhabi and worked for engineering and environmental firms in the Middle East on projects across the region.  She also  revamped a South Pacific maritime service with responsibilities for local trade vessels and an international fleet servicing the maritime industry. Susan continues to write: whether braced against the hull of a sailing vessel on a hard tack, during a crossing of the Middle East’s empty quarter in a Mini, or bouncing around in a troop carrier in Australia’s outback. 


John Roosen


John Roosen started his career as a biologist, served as a commissioned naval officer, designated law enforcement officer  and environmental emergency specialist in the United States, and has lived and worked in Australasia, the Americas, Antarctica and the Middle East. At a moment’s notice, he would respond to chemical and refinery plant explosions, deal with rocket fuel plant meltdowns and dismantle illegal drug labs.  John worked in the Middle East on a number of projects in Iraq, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and several conflict zones and other locations.  As a change-up, John switched careers to chasing pirates and dueling with a con artist extraordinaire on a remote South Pacific island as the Commissioner of Maritime Affairs. In between, he organised jungle expeditions and deep-sea scuba diving. However, John’s experience extends beyond responding to cataclysmic disasters and includes mastering the intricacies of making soufflé omelettes without burning the edges.


After writing Surviving Paradise about their life in the South Pacific, John and Susan created the concept of their mystery series. Dead Man’s Pose is first in the Yoga Mat Mysteries’ line-up, with Cobra Pose as the second in the YMM series, this was followed by Tree Pose and coming soon is Warrior Pose.
