    About "Laura Harrison McBride"

      • Laura Harrison McBride

        Possibly the weirdest thing about being an author is the research especially when it turns up Eleanor of Aquitaine as one s 23rd great grandmother I m also descended from a Tunisian who married a Spanish princess during the Crusades And I can count among my ancestors a bunch of Brits who descended upon Providence, Rhode Island, in the early days of the colonies, and brought their incredibly fundamentalist Plymouth Brethren beliefs with them Nonetheless, the grandfather who contributed that DNA to my mix was a first class rascal, having been expelled from Albany Business College about 1901 for overturning an outhouse He later went on to create a milk co op in New York State that protected farmers income for decades until corporate conglomerates dismantled it in court in the late 1980s He was dead by then, thank goodness, or I expect he d have had something to say about it.I m quite proud of my late quietly crusading accountant grandfather I m quite amazed by my genetic connection to European royalty I m proud of my First Place Virginia Press Association awards, but possibly fond of my ribbons for riding my beloved horse, the late Major Yeats, over fences.But I m still just a kid born in Brooklyn, NY, to ordinary working parents And that s the person who writes the snarky cozy mysteries featuring shelf Barker, a Brit with an Italian American wife, and a large dose of attitude.Aside from that, Granny Eleanor might be quite proud of some of my achievements, not least of which is having a day job for only about five years of my adult life, spending the rest freelancing She might approve my love of horses and dogs and fine cuisine not sure she d approve of my liberal politics But my rascally humanitarian grandfather clearly wouldeven though he was a lifelong Republican.So here I am a Brooklyn born bundle of extreme contradictions I love the Anglican Church for its beautiful music and liturgy, not to mention a number of lovely piles of rocks and stained glass But I follow a shamanic path myself I treasure America s energy, but I live in the EU where the pace is measured I love the idea of travel, but rarely set foot on an airplane OK, that has to do with the misery of flight these days, and a soupcon of terror I d love to be a vegetarian for spiritual reasons, but mussels come in vegetable form You can think Shelf Barker is my alter ego if you wish, or wait until the beginning of the new year and see if the heroine of the second series of mystery novels is like me than the fictional man named Graham Barker no middle name because of his Trotskyite parents , but called Shelf Or maybe none of the above.Let me know.Thanks.
