Ordinary Women. Extraordinary Challenges. (3 Minutes with Author Maggie Smith)

I need to get something out in the open. A little over two and half years ago, I was a guest on Hear Us Roar, the outstanding podcast hosted by Maggie Smith, my guest on this week's episode of 3 Minutes with the Author. And ever since that day, I've been seriously fangirling Maggie. So you can imagine my excitement (nervousness?) when I got to turn the tables on her for my show to talk about her sophomore novel BLINDSPOT - a must read - and what she's working on next. As always, Maggie was generous and gracious. See what I mean? Fangirl.

Join Maggie and I as we talk about her writing process, her books, and her favorite thing about being an author. WATCH NOW.


Every move she makes, someone’s watching.

Rachel Matthews is used to stress—from the cutthroat world of the district attorney’s office to her escalating clashes with her teenage daughter. So when a stranger sends a lavish bouquet with a macabre message and leaves a disturbing video on her doorstep, she’s quick to act. Teaming up with an old classmate turned private investigator, she wades through old case files, searching for someone harboring a grudge. But before she has time to pinpoint a suspect, her stalker issues a demand—he wants money, lots of it, or he’ll hurt her daughter.

Desperate to protect her child, Rachel agrees but soon finds herself fleeing a bloody crime scene, fearful for her life. Suddenly she’s in the crosshairs of a dangerous and clever enemy, someone who’s manipulated her since Day One, someone who knows her long-buried secrets, someone who’s framing her for murder. As she follows the clues, Rachel fears the answer is linked to an event eighteen years ago, a deception that could wreck her fragile bond with her daughter. Can she solve the puzzle of who wants to destroy her and beat them at their own game before she loses her career, her family, and her freedom?

 Up next, my interview with novelist Elizabeth Solazzo!
