When she first embarked in fiction writing, Maggie thought, Piece of cake. After all, she’d been a newspaper reporter for ten years; writing was her daily bread. But Zombified, her first novel about a band of sexy zombies, was anything but easy. The story wasn’t conveniently laid out for her at a press conference; it had to be coaxed out of her own imagination. Plot points resisted solving, descriptions meandered, and characters misbehaved. But just when things seemed bleakest, it happened. Maggie fell in love with it all: the zombies, the love story, and even the rituals of writing.

Maggie likes her leading women flawed and her science fiction sexy. She went to school for journalism and political science. She lives in the United States.

Go get iced coffee, talk to a friend, take a shower. Your brain keeps working in the background and then, all of a sudden, you find yourself in the shower, going, “Ah-ha!”(less)

What makes good characters?

Excerpt:

Real people are complex and sometimes inconsistent but they feel real. Fictional characters feel less real if they are inconsistent. But if they are too predictable, they are boring. What is a writing God to do? Read more of this blog post »

“So what if he didn’t have a heartbeat? The boy was a keeper.”
Maggie LaCroix

“I’m not like you,” he said. “I used to be like you, but I’m not anymore.”
“What are you? A vampire?”
He had to laugh. “Of course not!”
Then, he blurted it out. “We’re zombies.”
This time, Josie drew her hand back, cradling it as if it had been wounded by its contact with his skin.
“Zombies? Like in the movies? But how? You guys are so . . . sexy!”
Maggie LaCroix

“Sex contained all sorts of promises—I love you, I will see you again, I will not hurt you. It bonded people. It took down defenses. It made humans do unwise things with their hearts and their money.”
Maggie LaCroix

“She held his stare, waiting for a clue to his intentions—a smile, a nod, even a frown. But he just looked straight at her, his eyes boring holes in her, reaching inside and lighting a fuse line of heat down to her belly. It seemed to last an eternity, that stare.”
Maggie LaCroix, Zombified

“Henri had lost a lot of bodily functions when he died—he didn’t eat, breathe, or sleep anymore—but other things had stayed, thankfully, such as his electrified response to Josie’s tactile wandering.”
