Susan Juby

SUSAN JUBY has brought both the comedy and the angst of adolescence to life in her wildly successful Alice books: Alice, I Think, Miss Smithers, and Alice MacLeod, Realist at Last. Her new novel, Another Kind of Cowboy (HarperCollins), will satisfy her readers, both teen and adult, with another story of the resilience and determination of youth facing difficult challenges. Juby took a circuitous route to writing, with a brief pause in fashion college and a longer stint in publishing. She grew up in several small towns in British Columbia, and currently lives on Vancouver Island with her husband, James, and their dog, who prefers to remain anonymous.
