Freida McFadden
Freida McFadden, a number one Amazon bestselling author, is a practicing physician that specializes in brain injury that has penned multiple Kindle bestselling medical humor and psychological thriller novels.

She lives with her black cat and her family in a centuries old three story home which overlooks the sea, with staircases that moan and creak with every step, and no one could hear you if you scream. Unless, maybe you screamed really loudly.

Freida’s debut novel, called “The Devil Wears Scrubs”, was released in the year 2013.

“The Devil Wears Scrubs” is the first novel in the “Dr. Jane McGill” series and was released in the year 2013. Jane McGill, a newly minted doctor, is in hell. Not literally, fortunately. But between the sleepless nights she spends on call, her drug addict patients, and battling wits with the charming yet sadistic Sexy Surgeon, Jane cannot imagine an afterlife that is worse than her first month of medical internship at County Hospital.

Then there is the devil herself: Dr. Alyssa Morgan, Jane’s senior resident. Alyssa becomes absolutely hellbent on making all of the new interns pay tenfold for the deadly sin of incompetence, Jane begins to worry that she might not make it through the year with her soul or her sanity remaining intact.

“The Devil You Know” is the second novel in the “Dr. Jane McGill” series and was released in the year 2017. Dr. Jane McGill is currently in heaven. She has a great job at a VA hospital, a loving husband, and an adorable daughter. Granted, it would be that much more wonderful if her preschooler didn’t wake her up at three in the morning, and it’d be a miracle if her husband would change the toilet paper roll once every millennium. Still, in many ways, she lives the ideal life that she had always imagined.

Then she learns that Dr. Ryan Reilly is the VA’s newest vascular surgeon and is Sexy Surgeon and the biggest jerk that she has ever loved. Ten years prior, she broke up with the Sexy Surgeon so she could marry the Nice Software Engineer. However while crevices and cracks show up in her marriage, she cannot help but begin wondering what her life would be like had she made a different decision. Or if it’s not too late to change her mind.

“Suicide Med” is the first novel in the “Prescription: Murder” series and was released in the year 2014. Southside Medical has been nicknamed “Suicide Med”, and for good reason. For the previous six years, every first year student has taken his own life. Except for last year. The previous year was a murder-suicide.

The press points to the heavy workload as being the culprit in the high suicide rate. Some of the students believe the school is cursed. Others believe that the deaths might not be suicides at all, that is no coincidence that Dr. Conlon, Southside’s beloved yet quirky anatomy professor, joined the staff the same year the suicides started to happen.

Either way, the same question echoes through the minds of each first year student at Suicide Med. Who’s going to be next to die?

“Brain Damage” is the second novel in the “Prescription: Murder” series and was released in the year 2016. Dr. Charly McKenna, after putting in years of hard work, has finally got it all. Spacious apartment overlooking Central Park? Check. Prosperous career as a dermatologist? Check. Handsome attorney husband? Check.

Until one night, a bullet rips on through the right side of her skull and she loses it all. While Charly begins to struggle to recover from her brain injury, she starts to realize that the events from that fateful night are trapped in the damaged right side of her brain. Now she’s got to put the pieces together in order to learn the identity of the man that attempted killing her, before he can finish the job he began.

“Baby City” is the first stand alone novel and was released in the year 2015. There are just three things that are certain in this world: babies, death, and taxes.

Nobody is more aware of this truth better than Emily McCoy, a third year resident that works in Baby City, the affectionate nickname for the busy Labor and Delivery unit at one New York City hospital. On an average day in Baby City, she delivers more babies than the number of hours of sleep she can squeeze in that same night. And certainly more than the number of dates that she has been on since she began her training in OB/GYN two years prior.

While Emily works tirelessly to safely herald scores of babies into the world, she gets acquainted with the three hard facts of Baby City: Babies always come when you don’t want them to. Babies never come when you want them to. And you don’t know who your real friends are until your baby slides down the birth canal.

“The Surrogate Mother” is the second stand alone novel and was released in the year 2018. Abby wants a baby more than anything else. However after years of adoptions that have fallen through and failed infertility treatments, it seems that motherhood isn’t in her future. That is, until Monica, her personal assistant, makes a generous offer which is going to make all of Abby’s dreams come true.

However it turns out that Monica is not who she says she is. The woman now carries Abby’s baby has got an unspeakable secret. And she’ll stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Freida delivers a thriller filled with plot twists and suspense with masterful writing with some intriguing situations and some enthralling characters. Some of these characters you will absolutely love and some you just want to punch in the face since they are villainous. It is an action filled story which is sure to keep you glued to the pages the entire time. It is a well written novel and the descriptive words are on point and make it feel like you are watching the story unfold right in front of you.

    Attended your virtual talk on June 13 2024.
    Learned many interesting things about your writing. Your books
    are impossible to put down once they are started.

    Just finished your new one The Housemaid is Watching. I read it in 2
    Days. If I didn’t have to sleep it would have been 1 day. I have read 4 of your books and pledge this will be the summer of Frieda McFadden where I
    Get to read them all.Your books are fabulous and I hope you have already
    Started the next one!

  2. Debbie Coates: 4 months ago

    I’ve read the two housemaid books OMG amazing books. Pre ordered the third one in June release. Fantastic author. Narration brilliant.

  3. Loves reading: 5 months ago

    Just read The Housemaid in two days-what a brilliant book ,love it,a real page turner cant wait to read The Housemaids Secret

  4. Petunia: 6 months ago

    I should have never picked up the first book, Housemaid. I skipped all my errands and chores to read this book from the start to the finish. Kept me on the edge of my seat. With most books you can sort of figure out the ending. Not with this one. So many twists and turns. What a great book. I am reading CoWorker now and have ordered 3 more books by this same author.

  5. Denaye: 9 months ago

    I love your books so much! I read Brain Dead! That was so great! I laughed so much! I realize some people may think I have a sick sense of humor (maybe I do)! I was so amazed about how spot on you are. I have had friends that have had Brain Damage from various accidents, some mild and some not so mild, but understanding and humor have got us through it!

  6. Vicki C Lockhart: 10 months ago

    I just finished Housemaid AND Housemaid’s Secret! Oh my goodness! Both are fantastic. So easy to read and you just cannot put them down once you start. Bought The Coworker and cannot wait to start reading it.

    • Petunia: 6 months ago

      I read the Housemaid and it was one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time. I had to order the Housemaid’s Secret and am waiting on that one. In the meantime, Walmart had the CoWorker.
      Not as happy with the Coworker. No twists and thrills. I had figured out the ending before I was halfway through the book.
      It was a good read but nowhere near the thrill of
      I would give Housemaid an 8 (can’t give it a 10 as it is the first book by McFadden I have read). But Coworker would rate a 2-3.

    • Petunia: 6 months ago

      My first book was Housemaid. I would rate it an 8 since it is my first book by McFadden. I just finished the Coworker today. I had figured out the ending before I was halfway through the book. It just didn’t have the same twists and thrills.
      I would give it a 2-3

      • Graeme: 6 months ago

        I don’t want to give away spoilers – but what I hated about The Coworker was the twist was telegraphed way ahead of time (person knowing the address) and I thought it was a red herring but hope – that was actually the twist.

  7. Bree: 10 months ago

    In the past week I have read:
    Never Lie
    The Inmate
    One by One
    The Perfect Son

    AMAZING ENDINGS!! I think The Inmate was my absolute favorite. I cannot wait to read more. Your books are just amazing, I cannot put them down.

    • Cynthia Gatlin: 9 months ago

      Mind to even the housemaids were also good

  8. Sara: 11 months ago

    I just read The Housemaid. First one of your books. OMG! Could not put it down! I immediately ordered the next one. I will definitely read ALL your books now! Love them!!

    • Brenda: 10 months ago

      Same here. I loved the Housemaid and then read the second one. Will definitively be reading more.

  9. Cheryl Robinson: 1 year ago

    I love love your books . Started them a few month ago and have read at least seven. Reading the Surrogate Mother now , what a fun read. I can’t put your books down. I am afraid I will run out of your books and won’t know what to do. Keep writing your books are the best. I have recommended them to all my friends and family. Thanks for the entertainment.

    • Kristine: 1 year ago

      I “used to have” another favorite author UNTIL I read one of McFaddens books! I have read almost all of them & seriously don’t know what I am going to do now. No other author holds my attention like McFaddens. Although I would like her to write lengthier books o I don’t finish them in 1 day. Lol

    • Jenn: 6 months ago

      I feel the same. What will I read once I read all freidas books?

      • Graeme: 6 months ago

        I have a long list of great standalone thriller authors 🙂 I’d recommend B.A. Paris and Shari Lapena next

  10. Cherylynn Patterson: 1 year ago

    I have read now 12 of your books and I can never put them down. I love them all you are the best and now my absolute favorite author. I just finished the new book the Housemaid Secret so awesome and now I am reading the Ex.

  11. Angie: 1 year ago

    Bought some of your books quite awhile ago but didn’t start reading them until a few weeks ago. LOVE THEM!! I have read The Perfect Son, The Locked Door, The Inmate, The Gift and every one of them kept me in suspense. I have never read so many books in such a short time period in my life. I love your style of writing!! Will be reading more books soon and can’t wait for the new ones to come out too. Keep up the great suspenseful writing. You are now one of my favorite authors next to David Baldacci and James Patterson!

  12. Marcia Betsch: 1 year ago

    I just finished NEVER LIE. This is one of the very best books I’ve read. But then again, so was THE HOUSE MAID. I was cocky & thought I had both figured out, but NO! You are a fantastic writer

  14. Diann Christensen: 2 years ago

    Freida, I have now read everything you have written. I call you “the lunatic author”, that has made me addicted to reading your books. You are awesome.

  15. Christine O'Connor: 2 years ago

    I just finished “The Housemaid.” I loved it! I started reading it on Tuesday and finished it on Wednesday – that’s amid cooking, shopping, sleeping, etc. I couldn’t wait to get back to it. I’ve never read anything of Freida McFadden, but in a few minutes I’ll order her other books.

    • Maxine Harrison: 2 years ago

      I have read all the books except the 2 short stories. For some reason I have never liked short stories. All the rest, I just devoured continuously til they were all read.
      Absolute entertainment every one of them.
      Cant wait for the next story. Hopefully?

  22. Diana Long: 2 years ago

    Just read Housemaid. Now I am reading all of them in order! Keep writing. You are insanely talented!

  23. Barbara Bowersox: 2 years ago

    I loved “The Housemaid”. I couldn’t put it down now a huge fan trying to find all your books in order. Thanks so much can’t wait to to read them all. Would suggest reading them in order?

  24. Shari Noda: 2 years ago

    I love your books but I do do get tired of how the men are so sexy and the sex is so great and all that. I just want to read a good mystery and don’t need all that “oh her husband is drop dead gorgeous, I hope he holds on to his towel” passages. Keep writing and it’s ok to have men who aren’t chiseled and women who aren’t longing for sex. haha

    • Kristine: 1 year ago

      Then definitely do NOT read any of Hoober’s books! I read just one, and the story line was superb BUT the unnecessary cussing & sex is is beyond disgusting! That’s was it for me & Hoover! Thank God I discovered F. McFadden, her writing is like no one I’ve ever read & “normally” she doesn’t have the filth others tend to think we NEED to read for it to be a good book! News flash…we read to escape from the world we live in! We DON’T want to read cussing & sex!

  25. Marilyn Heinz: 2 years ago

    I have read 3 books so far and could not put them down. The Perfect Son was the first book, then Do You Remember, then Do Not Disturb. I am currently reading Brain Damage. Excellent writing, please don’t stop. I have passed your name on to other friends and family who I know will enjoy your books as much as I do. Keep em coimng!

  26. Evelyn Warren: 2 years ago

    Read 2 of your thriller books — Great reads! Currently submitting requests to my public libraries to purchase all your ebooks to be included in their collection.

  27. Bonnie Vause: 2 years ago

    Just found you! I’m a retired Educator of 30 yrs., and published Author of “Fast Escape”… my 1st novel.
    My husband and I lived near Raleigh, NC 40 yrs., & recently retired in a quaint town full of mysteries & many wonderful people sprinkled with some rather odd ones too! I’m sure they will pop up in one of my books in the near future!
    We have 2 Yorkies, Cooper & Ruby-Kate.
    I enjoy gardening, writing & reading by all means! & playing with our Yorkies.
    Absolutely tickled pink to have found your books! Love your writing!
    Dr. Bonnie Vause, Ed.D.
