Profile: Laura Harrison McBride

About This Author

McBride has had a series of wacky events in her life, on both sides of the Atlantic. Of course she has; she's a native New Yorker but an Irish citizen living in Cornwall, UK. For starters. She's a journalist, an artist, a horsewoman and riding instructor, and she has run a Humane Society and an ad agency. You want wacky? She has seen it all. Well, most of it. All of which has given her the will and wisdom to write both offbeat mysteries and cogent sociopolitical commentary. And poetry. But what the heck; you only live once, and McBride packs a lot of it into her books, whether by The McBride herself, or one of her a/k/as.
