About this author

Sharon Burch Toner is the author of the Maggie McGill Mysteries series.

Empty the dishwasher. Take a walk. Or if it's really deep, I take a vacation -- spend a day completely away from the computer, go to the beach or go shopping with a friend. Whatever I do, what works best is giving the left brain a complete break. That gives the right brain, where all the good stuff happens anyway, a chance to come up with something creative.(less)

I love the freedom of setting my own schedule, working into the wee hours one day and maybe only spell checking the next. I must admit that often I fall in love with my characters. It truly is a tragedy if I must kill one off as I did in the fourth book of the Maggie McGill Mysteries, Maggie's Island. And I grieve for them.(less)

“When you come to the edge of all the light you have, and must take a step into the darkness of the unknown, believe that one of two things will happen. Either there will be something solid for you to stand on - or you will be taught how to fly.”
Patrick Overton

Sara Teasdale
There Will Be Stars

There will be stars over the place forever;
Though the house we loved and the street we loved are lost,
Every time the earth circles her orbit
On the night the autumn equinox is crossed,
Two stars we knew, poised on the peak of midnight
Will reach their zenith; stillness will be deep;
There will be stars over the place forever,
There will be stars forever, while we sleep.”
Sara Teasdale, Dark of the Moon
