Maggie Shayne has published more than 30 novels, several of which have appeared on the USA Today and The New York Times (extended) bestseller lists. Her stories span the genre, from westerns, to romantic suspense, to tales of the spiritual and paranormal, and just about everything in between. She's a seven-time nominee for the RITA Award, the industry's most prestigious prize, and has won countless others.

They have five gorgeous daughters, and a life that's half chaos, half bliss.
