After ten years of survival, aka working, in Hollywood, this former actress and current author of sexy contemporary romance is living happily-ever-after in Pittsburgh with her longtime sweetie and their two punky kids. When not carpooling to birthday parties or testing her gourmet cooking skills by throwing a frozen pizza into the oven, Maggie daydreams about sneaking off to the Vegas or Napa, or even just the movies. A love of red wine, Italian food, and music round out her list of life's greatest joys. Oh, and Tuesday night karaoke, totally underrated fun.

Seriously though, If I'm frustrated with part of a story or working through some part of the plot, I'll take a walk, listen to music, and try not to think. Sometimes that's when the best ideas show up.(less)

For me, building a character is definitely the most fun part of writing a story. As an author, I love hearing from readers, getting different reactions from the stories, hearing that a scene made someone laugh--that's everything.(less)

One Little Kiss...

Ah, island romance is anything more seductive than escaping to a tropical paradise with a sexy man? Not a chance. Unless, of course, its being stranded in paradise during a storm with a sexy man who might be The One. And since were talking romance novels, theres nothing I like better than a classic forced-proximity scenario. Undeniable sparks between two people that ultimately lead to love? Fa...

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)
I fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)I want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)”
E.E. Cummings

“To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”
e.e. cummings

“If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
Albert Einstein

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein

“A character is defined by the kinds of challenges he cannot walk away from. And by those he has walked away from that cause him remorse.”
Arthur Miller
