I do several different things to make sure I don't get stuck in writer's block. Writing is about the free flow of ideas, the rewriting is really where the magic and the story comes together.(less)

What Writing My Latest Novel Taught Me

Writing this novel taught me a lot.

It always surprises me when I write a novel because each one is so different, not just the story but the process that I go through to write it.

People often say to me, your so lucky to be able to do that – write a book. I do have to agree, I am lucky because I get to create roller coaster ride suspense/thrillers. But believe me there is no luck involved in writing Read more of this blog post »

"Another great book by author Maggie Thom. So many twists and turns. Was given a free book by the author. My review is freely and honestly given "
Split Seconds by Maggie Thom
"Another great book in this series. Twins separated as toddlers, heart-breaking pain, twist and turns, thrilling suspense and her usual alluring writing, this is such a wonderful addition to a superb series.

A book that will keep you on the edge of you" Read more of this review »
Split Seconds by Maggie Thom
"Book three in the series, and just as good as the first two. Not one but two feisty females what’s not to like. Cannot wait for the next book in the series. These are cracking suspense thrillers. Highly recommended must read."

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'.
