Susan McBride

Susan McBride is the USA Today bestselling author of the Debutante Dropout Mysteries and the River Road Mysteries.

The debut of her Jo Larsen series, Walk Into Silence, was a #1 Kindle bestseller in the US and the UK, and #3 in Australia.

McBride's new book, Walk A Crooked Line, is the second Jo Larsen novel.

Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. McBride's reply:
What I’m reading right now is The Martian by Andy Weir. I’m a little behind the curve on this one, I know, but I caught the movie on TV and loved it. Thanks to Matt Damon bringing Mark Watney to life so brilliantly, I can easily envision him. Sometimes the writing is clunky, but Watney’s voice is so engaging that I don’t mind. I’m rooting for him, just as I’m supposed to, hoping he survives being left behind on Mars (and his potato “field” blowing up). My only negative: I find myself wanting to skim through some of the technical stuff (which I used to do when I binged on Tom Clancy). But, hey, I’m not the typical science fiction reader. I’m just a chick who likes a good story. I don’t exactly need to know how to repair an oxygenator with a rubber band.

Next up in my TBR pile: The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware. Again, I’m late to jump onto the Ruth Ware bandwagon. But I didn’t marry until 43 and had a baby at 47. I’m kind of late to everything.
