About this author

I live in the teeny, tiny town of Taylor, NY, (Alliteration Alert!) though my mailing address is Cincinnatus, my telephone exchange is Truxton and I pay taxes and vote in Cuyler. All of these are at least in the same rural county in the southern hills of New York State; Cortland County. There are more cattle than people here. The nearest “big” cities are Syracuse and Binghamton and they are an hour away, in different directions, and not really all that big by most standards, though they both seem humongous to me. I look out my window to see rolling, green, thickly forested hills, wildflower laden meadows and wide open blue, blue skies. My road is barely paved. The nearest neighboring place is a 700 acre dairy farm.

My house is a big, century

I think that sounds most like TWILIGHT HUNGER. The one where she finds the diaries in attic and thinks they were written by a long dead lunatic who thought he was a vampire. She uses them to write screenplays that put her on the map in the film industry, but he comes stalking her. And there's a scene where he's in the basement and she sort of feels him there. (less)

Maggie Shayne Hi, Charlotte! Thanks so much for saying so. I love those books as well, and I'm so glad they're finding a new audience. You know I wrote the Texas series in the 90s, and the OKs in the early 2000s. But it's as if they've been given new life, and now I'm planning to write more books in these series, or another spinoff series. Enjoy!


Charlotte Everett Hi there, just wanted to let you know that I am in love with the Texas Brand series! As soon as i sit down with one of the books I'm completely whisked away to Texas and have loved each of the stories.

I'm now on to the Oklahoma Brands and I'm getting to love that part of the family too. Currently on the second book and i seem to be reading a book a day at the moment as I can't put them down lol. X :)
