Susan O'Brien


Susan O'Brien has been passionate about reading and writing since childhood, when she started a neighborhood newspaper and escaped tween stress with mysteries. Since covering her first big story (the birth of gerbils next door), she has worked with many national publications and earned positive reviews from Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Suspense Magazine, and Mystery Scene Magazine. Her debut mystery, Finding Sky, was nominated for a Best First Novel Agatha Award. When she isn’t typing away, Susan loves cooking (while blasting old school R&B or playing podcasts), photographing nature, volunteering with hospice patients, and studying spirituality. She lives with her family, including her beloved rescue dog, in Northern Virginia.
