New York Times and USA Today bestselling, RITAÂ® Award winning Author Maggie Shayne published 62 novels and 22 novellas for five major publishers over the course of 22 years. She also spent a year writing top story arcs for CBSâ€™s Guiding Light and As the World Turns and was offered the position of co-head writer of the former. An offer she tearfully (it was lots) turned down. It was scary, turning down an offer that big. But in March 2014, she did something even scarier. She went indie. And it went so well that by July 2015 she incorporated her business, Thunderfoot Publishing Inc. Sheâ€™s never enjoyed her job more.
This new frontier of publishing is bringing Maggie success like sheâ€™s never seen before in two distinct areas of her work. First, her contemporary western romances, The Texas Brands series and the Oklahoma All-Girl Brands. And secondly her beloved paranormals, including the Wings in the Night series, which has the distinction of being the second vampire romance novel series ever, launching just a year after Lori Herterâ€™s Obsession series created a new genre.
This year, Maggie is writing two spin-off series for fans of both these genres. The McIntyre Men, spun from the Oklahoma Brands, launches with a special holiday anthology this Thanksgiving.
Sheâ€™s also written and published the first 3 of a new phase for her vampires, Wings in the Night: Reborn.
Maggie is also an acclaimed thriller writer with her award winning Brown and de Luca novels, and many more.
Maggie Shayne is extremely accessible to her readers, interacting with them daily, via her Facebook pages and twitter accounts.
