After LITTLE BLACK DRESS, Susan will pen another women’s fiction novel for HarperCollins and a young adult thriller for Random House (details to come!).
On the personal front, Susan calls herself an “Accidental Cougar” after meeting a younger man in 2005 when she was a St. Louis Magazine Top Single. They were married in February 2008 and live happily ever after in a suburb of St. Louis. Susan is a breast cancer survivor and often speaks to women’s groups about her experience.
Additionally, Susan McBride has written five award-winning Debutante Dropout Mysteries (HarperCollins/Avon), including BLUE BLOOD, THE GOOD GIRL’S GUIDE TO MURDER, THE LONE STAR LONELY HEARTS CLUB, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, and TOO PRETTY TO DIE. She has authored several YA series books for Random House about debutantes in Houston, the debut in 2008 appropriately titled THE DEBS, which was followed by LOVE, LIES, AND TEXAS DIPS, in 2009. GLOVES OFF will be the third book.
