|Occupation||Novelist & Artist|
|Location||Virginia, United States|
|Introduction||I'm Maggie, professional novelist by day and artist by night. All of my life decisions have been based around my inability to be gainfully employed. Talking to yourself, staring into space, and coming to work in your pajamas are frowned upon when you're a waitress, calligraphy instructor, or technical editor (all of which I've tried), but are highly prized traits in novelists and artists. I've made my living as one or the other since I was 22. I now live an eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia with my charmingly straight-laced husband, two kids, and neurotic dogs. I'm the author of the Books of Faerie (LAMENT and BALLAD); the bestselling SHIVER trilogy (SHIVER, LINGER, FOREVER), and THE SCORPIO RACES .|

What reason do you have to believe the earth is flat?
Because I drove FOREVER to get to Pittsburgh from Virginia, and I still didn't end up back where I started.
