The Opposite of Famous, A Hollywood Memoir

The Kindle version of my memoir is up for pre-order on Amazon right here! As many of you know, I write nonfiction as Susan McNabb, so this one is under that name. It made sense to tell my real story with my real name.

If you enjoyed my Los Angeles vampire romance, Drop Dead Gorgeous, then I think you’ll like my memoir. And now you’ll know why I set that story in the modeling world of Hollywood. I lived it!

Here’s the blurb:

A shy young woman traveled from North Carolina to Hollywood in 1984, and within a mere few decades, struggled and clawed her way up to become the opposite of famous.

Susan McNabb worked on thousands of jobs as a model, actor, and extra, as an assistant to casting, wardrobe, makeup, and finally, to Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. Single well into her forties, McNabb rubbed elbows and other body parts with scores of interesting men, including Jerry Seinfeld for eight rocky years.

This hilarious collection of essays chronicles her adventures and a life of dogged persistence in a business that shows you the door more often than a path to success. Learn what it takes to work as a fashion model, a commercial actor, a film extra, and a butt double. And to build a rich life in which the journey is the real reward.


I hope you enjoy the book! I post snippets on Saturdays on Instagram and Facebook so everyone can get a peek inside. I post on my Susan McNabb accounts as well as Suki McMinn, so feel free to follow me as either or both. As always, thank you for your love and support!
