Maggie Tideswell

International Bestselling Author of Spooky Paranormal Romance

As a paranormal romance author, Maggie has a passion for love. Everywhere one looks, people are holding hands, kissing and hugging, making the depth of feelings between them clear. After all, it is love, not money, that makes the world go round.

Majoring in psychology at varsity laid the foundation for her interest in what attracts people to one another, and what keeps them together when there are so many ‘good fit’ combination for every person. (There being only one true love for each person is a myth.)

But, there are many types of love: the love between siblings and between parents and offspring, the love between friends – and Maggie is not a proponent of platonic friendships between men and women! And then of course there is the love/lust relationship between a man and a woman, which is where her real interest lies.

Maggie has a deep interest in ghosts, yet she is most likely never to see one. The reason is simple – she is trying too hard. She has experienced their presence, though. Her interest centers around the reasons why some souls can’t find peace in death.

It is said that a person dying a violent death often lingers where they used to live, or unfinished business might keep them from crossing over. Maybe even not wanting to leave a loved one behind could keep them here. These ghosts are called residual because they occupy a space familiar to them. They don’t interact with the living, but are more like a recording, playing a past even over and over again. They don’t seem to be aware of being observed.

Then of course, there are poltergeists – which literally means ‘noisy ghosts’ – who are attached to people rather than a place or an area. These guys slam doors and switch lights on and off, hence the name ‘noisy’ ghosts. And as we all know, the film industry has had a field day with poltergeists.

Most of the ghosts in the Bridesmaids, Weddings & Honeymoons series are residual as are the ones in Finders Keepers, but the ones in Roxanne’s Ghost are poltergeists, bordering on being an evil spirit. In Trapped In Yesterday, we have what is called an intelligent haunting – intelligent, because Lawrence interacts with the living.

Maggie loves perfume, and is very rarely without. She loves her tea by day and Autumn Harvest Crackling by night. And for the sake of world peace, don’t tamper with her soapies’ recordings, or with the internet connection. Being married to a chef, she became a good home cook. The result is that she is nearly as passionate about food as she is about creating alpha heroes every woman will fall in love with, just as she does, every time.

The strangest thing is that cats have never played any kind of role in her stories, as she is owned by two of them. That changes in Finders Keepers, when a smart-ass furball tries to rule the roost.
