Maggie Thom made the hard decision to leave her successful, twenty year career in management, to write full time. It was not an easy decision and has been a straight uphill learning curve. The leap was adventurous and very enlightening. She’s been writing for most of her life – short stories to novel length manuscripts and has one story published in a one hundred year anthology.
It took a long time for her to step into her own but she finally did it and is thrilled to release her first novel – Captured Lies – filled with suspense, murder, mystery and romance – available October 2012. When she’s not running her children around or spending time with her best friend, her husband, she’s writing – anywhere, anytime. Give her five free minutes and you’ll find her busy scribbling down ideas. She lives in the real world but loves to get lost in the lives of her characters – who live, love and laugh and are all figments of her imagination. She is busy writing her second novel to be released, spring of 2013.
About ‘Captured Lies’:
Her life was a lie!
Bailey knew her upbringing wasn’t normal but she’s worked hard to stabilize her life. At 29, she finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then suddenly her mother dies, leaving a gaping hole and a discovery that they may not even be related. If Guy, the private investigator is to be believed, her life is a lie. Using the skills she learned on the streets, Bailey travels back through a sketchy and dangerous past, to find answers. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of those who want her dead and convincing Guy she can do it alone, are making it difficult to discover not only the secrets of her mother’s past but that of a family claiming she is theirs.
Everyone seems to have a story… but who’s telling the truth? And who wants her dead? Is Guy part of the solution? Or part of the problem? To discover the facts, she’ll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets, dating back over thirty years.
