About: Sue Pethick

Susan Pethick was born in San Diego, California. The second of three girls, Sue was the ham of the family whose stories entertained, and occasionally embarrassed, her long-suffering family. After graduating from San Diego State University, she spent several years ‘finding herself,’ doing everything from working as a computer systems analyst to singing in a rock band.

Her checkered employment history finally paid off when she became a professional writer. Sue’s short stories have appeared in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine and Murderous Intent. PET FRIENDLY, her first novel for Kensington Books, was inspired by her life-long love of animals.

Her second book, BOOMER’S BUCKET LIST, was Kensington's "Staff Pick" for January, 2017 and named "A Closer Weekly Staff Pick" in the January 2nd, 2017 edition of Closer Weekly magazine. 

PLEASE DON'T FEED THE MAYOR (out February 26, 2019) is a "Farmgirl Book Club pick in the Feb/Mar issue of MaryJane's Farm Magazine.

Wow! First for Women magazine has chosen ALASKAN CATCH as one of their 7 Books We're Loving Now for their December 2019 issue!  

Sue lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Chris.
