 10 things most people don’t know about me……

1)           I could knock out three individually right now, but I’ll lump them together here…my age, my weight, my true hair color.

2)           I am the eldest of three children. My younger brother was killed in an auto accident in 1984, when he was 16. My youngest brother survived with minor scratches. I miss him every day.

3)           I wish Santa and Mrs. Claus were real. Just the thought of spreading goodwill, giving children a gift to make them smile, working really, really hard only one day a year, yep, that would be awesome. My husband and I would definitely sign up.

4)            My favorite dessert is cheesecake. My favorite drink is American Honey. My favorite chocolate is Dove’s milk chocolate and caramel. My favorite snack is buttered popcorn. My favorite meal is steak, medium well, wild rice and broccoli. My favorite flower is the pink peony. My favorite color is red. My favorite sexual position is none of your business.

5)           My bucket list consists of learning to belly dance, visiting the Vatican, meeting a friendly ghost, buying a pair of Jimmy Choo’s, being a featured author at a major book event, visiting every state in the US, and tracing my ancestry from Scotland.

6)            This is who I’ve pictured so far as the characters of my books:

Mac Coalson – Joe Maganiello

Dixie Coalson – Hayden Panitierre

Hank Coalson – Tom Selleck

Ginny Coalson – Goldie Hawn

Sam – Charlie Hunnan

Angel – Blake Lively

Chance – Henry Cavill

Georgia – Kate Upton

7)           If I was stranded on a desert island, (no people), I would bring these books:

The Joy of Cooking – because I’m going to need to know how to cook all sorts of fish.

The complete works of Alexander Dumas – because, well, it’s Alexander Dumas.

A comprehensive first aid reference – because I’m a klutz.

A book by Lexi Blake, Shayla Black & Cali Mackay – because I’m a horny klutz who likes to laugh.

The Boy/Girl Scout Guide – I’ve seen what these kids can do. It’s impressive.

The Bible – because there is something new to discover in it every day.

8)           I don’t read my reviews (good or bad), look at my rankings, or check my sales figures. Authors make themselves crazy doing that stuff. I make my husband do it. He’s already crazy.

9)           I thought I had a horrible childhood, and to many, I guess I did, but what I hear on the news today, see in the schools and on playgrounds…it makes me so sad. Children should be cherished for the beautiful, brilliant gifts they are.

10)          I am grateful, everyday, to be able to do what I love to do. So, I ask God to bless each and every one of my fans for allowing me to make you smile, or laugh, or give you hope for a happily ever after.

Sam Coalson, ex-Navy SEAL, has returned to Grafton for the wedding of his brother. After being run out of town fifteen years ago for a crime he didn’t commit, he’s determined to claim what is rightfully his and take on anyone crazy enough to try and stop him.

Angel Devereaux is smart, sexy and definitely on Sam’s blacklist. After siding with Sam’s enemy fifteen years ago, Angel can’t help but wonder what if….what if Sam had never left? What if he could forgive her now? She had her reasons, but he won’t listen. So enough with words, sometimes action is exactly what’s called for.

Enjoy an excerpt:

Sam continued to advance on her. “And you don’t even want to know what he was gonna do to you if he could’ve gotten a chance.” Sam’s good eye began to twitch at the thought of the danger she had been in. She had no sense, but by God before the night was over, she would know to never put herself in danger again. He’d see to that. Apparently, she’d been flying wild these past fifteen years. Well, that was ending now.

Angel threw her arms up in exasperation. “Oh that’s just great. Just swell, dandy, fine. I try to save your miserable ass and you’re accusing me of being unfaithful. Well, of course you would. You can’t trust me, remember? I turned against you once, right? So therefore, I’ll do it again, right?” she screamed at him as tears ran down her face. It was just too much! She couldn’t stand his mistrust anymore.

“I had everything under control. There was no need for your ‘help’ as you call it,” he growled at her. He kept seeing the lecherous looks of those men and the hands reaching out to touch those perfect breasts. She was his, dammit! No one touched his Angel.

“Oh yeah, right. I can tell you had everything well in hand. You were locked up, beaten up, and completely outnumbered. Oh, and the FBI was considering you an accomplice in the whole mess. They didn’t care if you were dead or alive. Yeah, you had them shakin’ in their shoes, all right.” She’s wiped her tears. “I was sick and scared for you, yet you’re so stupid you have the audacity to question my loyalty to you.”

Hi! I’m Maggie Adams. I live near St. Louis, MO with my high school sweetheart, Ned, and my wonderful kids, Katie (Kyle) and Ross (Valerie). My life is like a walking, talking sitcom from I Love Lucy, but I love it, although people do tend to keep their distance from me! Writing has always been my dream, with reading my favorite hobby. I try to include a little bit of my life in everything I write, so when you read my books, keep your eyes wide open – I’m in there somewhere! Happy reading!

  1. What are you working on now? What is your next project?

    • Maggie Adams says:

      Hi Mai! Right now, I’m continuing the Tempered Steel series with a novella about Coalson brother, Lucky, and his time in Vegas looking for the arsonist. What he finds there, will surprise you! And, of course, the next Coalson brother, Brandon, needs to find his soul mate in Book Four. If you’re interested, I’m having a “Name that Book” game to find the next title for Brandon’s story. It’s on my fan club group https://www.facebook.com/groups/MaggiesMinxes/
