Suzanne Redfearn

Born and raised on the east coast, Suzanne Redfearn moved to California when she was fifteen. She currently lives in Laguna Beach with her husband, their two kids, a Cockapoo named Cooper, and a cat named Motley. They own a restaurant in town called Lumberyard. Prior to becoming an author, Redfearn was an architect specializing in residential and commercial design. When not writing, she enjoys doing anything and everything with her family—skiing, golf, tennis, surfing, playing board games, and watching reality TV. Redfearn is an avid baseball fan. Her team is the Angels. She can also be found in the bleachers watching her kids’ sports or prowling the streets with her husband checking out the culinary scene of Orange County.

Redfearn's new novel is No Ordinary Life.

Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Her reply:
Best book I’ve read recently: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman—I adored this quirky wonderful novel about a grouchy old man with an oversized heart. It was so witty and insightful that I several times I found myself laughing while contemplating the meaning of life and death at the same time, truly a tribute to the genius of the author.

Currently reading: Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff—This book about a married couple whose lives are woven together by lies has gotten rave reviews. I have just started it, but already the cast of characters has pulled me in. I like the idea of the novel being written in two parts—the first half from one perspective and the second from another. I love any story that delves into the complexity of relationships, which this one promises to do.

Looking forward to reading: Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica—Kubica has become one of my new favorites, her haunting psychological thrillers are complex and unpredictable. This new one about never being able to outrun your past sounds like it is going to be more of the same and I can’t wait until it is released in May.
