About this author

Award winning author, Maggie Thom, took the challenge and leapt off, leaving a fulltime, twenty year career in management, to write full time. After publishing her first suspense/thriller book Captured Lies, October 2012, she published her second novel, Tainted Waters, April, 2013. Tainted Waters went on to win 2013 Suspense and Thriller Book of the Year through Turning the Pages Magazine. She is excited to publish her third novel, Deceitful Truths, March 2014. An avid reader and writer her whole life, she decided to break the monotony of wishing to be an author by making it happen. She is an avid nature lover and likes nothing better than to take a book, hike to a remote spot by a river or waterfalls and read. Married to her best friend, s ...more

Hi. As you may have noticed I've been a bit absent lately, not minded just absent. :) I have many things on my plate but one of them is the rebuilding of my website. It's coming but still needs some work. I really hadn't planned on creating something new but basically needed to.

It started at Christmas...

Winnerland by Julia Barrett
"What a powerful, well-written novel. Unlike many novels where people are preparing for Armageddon, what is disturbing about this one is the thought that something like this could actually take place. It seems more like someone recounting an abduct..." Read more of this review »

I loved this story and how it was written. It's one of those stories that just pulls you in, you feel the pain, the fear, the anguish, the hope, the drive, the determination of the young adults. It is a dark topic but is written in a way that it isn' ...more

I would love to listen. I love listening to my son and he's still in the learning stages. :) So I'm thinking you would be amazing to listen to. How would we do this?

Christy Hi Maggie! Thank You for sending the request from Fb :)

I have loved classical music I believe before I came out of the Womb and when I was in 1st grade and found out I was able to play a Strings instrument I was E static!! I have been hooked ever since. It is like a mind relaxer for me as well as a stress relief. I can take out my Violin and just get lost in the feel and the music. I hope that your son loves playing and develops a great love for it like I have :) I would love to play if you would like to listen!!

Maggie Thom Hi. Thanks Anna. I hope you had a good New Year. As with Christmas it came and went with the speed of light. Thank you for connecting. What is your resolution or intention for 2013? Mine is to publish 2 more books, have more fun, and find time to read more. :)

Anna's Herding Cats! Hi Maggie! Thanks for the friend request :) It's always fun to meet new people and see what they're reading and loving :)

Hope you're having a great weekend!


Maggie Thom lol Sorry. I actually meant what other author do you like a lot. I liked Mirror Image a lot too. I also really liked The Switch. I liked the twist in it. I like to read, almost anything - just need suspense, mystery, a bit of romance (not always) and I'm good.

Jill Do you mean which is my favourite title of SB? Probably 'Mirror Image' and 'Lethal'.
