We're happy to have Maggie Brendan with us today talking about her book, A Love of Her Own. To learn more about Maggie and her book, read on!
1) How did this story come to you?
April McBride is character from my first book, No Place for a Lady in the Heart of West series. My critique partners said they wanted to know what happened to her and April needed redeeming. Lol.
2) Tell us about the journey to getting this book published.
I’d already pitched a 3-book series and had a contract, so it was a matter of telling April’s story. I had a great time writing a fun adventure for her.
3) Tell me three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.
My brother, Jess McCreede was a western writer while he was alive and was my mentor. I love pretty dishes and have something for just about every holiday. I like antiques and have a small collection of antique head vases. (and a few not antiques ones, but pretty).
4) What are you working on now and what's next for you?
I’m working on Deeply Devoted, a series titled The Blue Willow Brides. It’s about a mail order bride from Holland who brings her two sisters with her to America.
5) Parting comments?
I was asked by LifeWay Christian Stores to sign at the Southern Baptist Convention on June 14th in Orlando. I’m so honored and excited. I feel so blessed to have Tamera Alexander, Kim Sawyer and Julie Lessman endorse my books. It couldn’t get any better thank that. Thanks for having me Dawn!
6) Where can fans find you on the internet?
