Interview with the author

Q: Have you always wanted to be a writer?
A: I'm an attorney and have done a lot of technical writing, but knew I wanted to write novels. I thought I'd find time when I retired. Fate stepped in, as it often does, and put me on this path sooner. I broke my neck in an auto accident and suffered from double vision for months. I couldn't read or watch TV, so I conceived the plot for my Rosemont series.

Q: Why did you decide to write a series?
A: I prefer television series to movies. The longer format of television allows for deeper character development. The same holds true for series fiction. I like to fall in love with a character or hate a character (but root for them to change their ways). I feel like Mma. Ramotswe and Mma. Makutsi from Alexander McCall Smith's Ladies' Detective Agency series are old friends. I wanted to recreate that sort of connection in the Rosemont series.

Q: What other authors do you read or admire?
A: I'm a fan of women's fiction, women's sagas, and romance. I love Rosamunde Pilcher's later trilogy - The Shell Seekers, Coming Home, and September. Jan Karon's Mitford series creates an enchanting world, as does Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove. My Rosemont series is set in the current day, but I've tried to capture a feeling of camaraderie and connection (among the good guys) that takes us back to a slightly simpler time and place.

Q: What are your favorite books?
A: In addition to the works I've already mentioned, I adored Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and A Long Way from Chicago.

Q: Who has had the greatest influence on your author life?
A: My dad - without question. He told me or read me a bedtime story every night of my childhood, often adding his own twists and turns to the plots or dialogue. He had an incredible, gentle sense of humor. He also wrote novels - who-done-its - when he retired. I have 17 of his manuscripts and can feel his comforting presence in the room with me when I pick up his pages and read.

Q: What of your own interests have you written about in the Rosemont series?
A: I love my home and all things related to homemaking: cooking, gardening, decorating, and entertaining. I love celebrating all of the seasons and I change my decor for Easter, Fourth of July, fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring. I'm also addicted to vintage silver and all sorts of china, with a special fondness for teapots.

Loved it!

I have enjoyed this series so much! So well written and narrated. I love what Maggie has accomplished throughout this. I am only disappointed that the next two books in the series are not on audible yet!

Great series, but.......

I have loved listening to the Rosemont series. When I finish this book I looked for the next one. I was thrilled to find there were two more books in the series, but not on audible. I'm so disappointed. I don't understand why there would be all the books in the series except 2 on Audible.

and the Rosemont Saga continues to entertain....

It is amazing that the Rosemont Saga continues to entertain 5 books in. What a great cast of characters. I'm sad that I am heading to the last book. I'll be sorry for it to end. It's so good.

Good. Mysterious, far-fetched. too drawn-out.

I enjoyed the entire series. It started out as very mysterious with an interesting plot but as the books went on there was a very far fetched change to the story. It was not really much of a suspenseful mystery but a soap opera. I am not sure it needed to be told over 6 books because at times the tale became stagnant and unbelievable. For ex. Why the town waited so long to call in Federal help was appalling and lost lives <--- irl town officials would be impeached or at least tar and feathered.

Though there were a lot of fun sub plots and and a few interesting supporting characters the town just went merrily on it's way as corruption and danger was constant. The heroine was ridiculously too good to be true. What once was an endearing strong woman became a joke in the end. That was the most disappointing. (I'm all for forgiveness but come on!)

My last comment is on the narration. The narrators voice is very pleasant and most of the time it is easy to distinguish the speaker. However, there are numerous little flaws like using the wrong names which was confusing and took me out of the story flow. It happened in several of the books so I'm not sure if the narrator was reading typos or making mistakes. Regardless it had the same distracting effect.

if you have enough time to devote to the series then do so but if not none of the preceeding books could be considered stand alone. once your invested you'll have to see it through to find out the resolution.

Rosemont Series

I love the series also. I listen to books from audible each night when I go to bed. I can’t imagine have to read a book for the next 2 in this series. When I read holding a book I doze off and it hits me in the face. After that I’m wide awake. Hopefully the woman reading this series will be hired soon to read the next books. Even if you have to change readers it will still be good to have them in audible. I can say I truly enjoy audible. I listen when I clean my kitchen & other rooms. I put my phone against my ear turned while I’m at therapy while I get moist heat on my leg. I very happy there is such a thing as audible!!! I’ve never read so many books as fast. In the day I used to order books from DoubleDay Book Club. I read a lot every night but this is so much easier. I just set the sleep timer and relax.
