The Crozet Library will host local author Susie McKenna as she discusses her latest thriller, Last Tracks, on Friday, November 8 from 12-1pm.
A book about survival and revenge, McKenna said writing thrillers was a challenge and required a lot of research.
“The book is intended to give the reader a few scares, but also relieves the tension at times with a bit of sarcastic humor,” she said.
“A lot of research was required to describe the characters and the plot. I took courses in outdoor survival, forensics, and hunter education.
“The book touches on everything from snowshoeing, ice fishing, law enforcement, revenge, justice, to an accordion-playing bad guy.”
In addition to chatting about her book, McKenna will bring items for show-and-tell, including photos, a map, snowshoes, and jerky for tasting.
