I've lived in nine different countries on both sides of the Atlantic, and spent my childhood and university years buried in books of one kind or another - fiction and non-fiction. Now I write dramatic stories that get the heart racing, the mind buzzing, and the emotions stirring. My characters are the kind I'd like to meet in real life--a little bad, mixed up, or just plain nutso. And story settings...well, I like to keep things edgy with a liberal dash of sizzling.
My first novel, The Nude, was a Kirkus Best of 2012, and my second, Nathaniel Myer, is getting great reviews. I also pen detective short fiction. You can connect with me on http://www.margaretsisu.com, https://www.facebook.com/MargaretSisu... and https://twitter.com/margaretsisu

Melki, I have a secret: I'm not cool at all, but a complete geek. I travelled for school and because I married another geek who turned out to be a closet adventurer! Left alone, I'd curl up with the latest chapter of whatever I'm working on,a good novel, or slap on my boots and go walking or cycling. So bring on the friend request:)!

Melki Hi, Margaret. I was going to float you a friend request when you joined the Pulp Fiction group, but you seemed way too cool for me!
You've been all over the world, and I've lived in the same state all my life.

I'm looking forward to reading your reviews and seeing what you're reading next.
