How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
As my editor stated, “You really succeeded in getting inside your characters’ heads and you make the reader care about THEM more than about what they did.”
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write what you would love to read. Listen to your characters and let them tell their story.
The Affaire de Coeur Magazine named Kristie Leigh Maguire Best Up and Coming Author of the Year and her novel Desert Heat as Romance of the Year in their 2004 Reader/Writer Poll. Her novels Cabin Fever and No Lady and Her Tramp placed in the Top Ten in the Preditor & Editor’s Poll (2005).
Kristie Leigh Maguire and her husband have lived all over the United States and many foreign countries while following his career. While living in Japan, she found it very difficult to find books to read that were written in English. This situation was intolerable as she was an avid reader and had been known to resort to reading cereal boxes if nothing else was available. Have you ever tried to read a cereal box written in Japanese? It was not a pretty picture. Ms. Maguire began writing her own books just to have something to read. She discovered a new passion in writing.
Although Kristie Leigh Maguire is originally from the South and will always remain Southern at heart, she and her husband now live in Nevada. During her expatriate years she lived in St. Croix, Aruba, Thailand, Japan and three times in Saudi Arabia and visited many other countries.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I got the inspiration for Second Chances: Love Lost, Love Found from an ad in the classified section of a newspaper and my imagination took over from there. The ad read: “Free wedding dress. Worn only once by mistake.”
