Abby never expected the newly, dubbed Sheriff Stud Muffin, to be just the distraction her world needed

Saturday, September 14th, 2019
The
Fixer Upper
Echo
Springs Book 1
by
Maggie Mae Gallagher
Genre:
Contemporary Romance 
 
Abby
Callier is more in love with Shakespearean heroes than any real man,
and she’s beginning to wonder if there is life for her outside the
pages of a book. It doesn’t help that her esteemed parents tend to
view her as they would one of their science experiments gone wrong.
On the eve of finishing her dissertation, she escapes her staid
existence to live in the house she inherited from her Great Aunt Evie
in the small town of Echo Springs, Colorado. Because, let’s face
it, when a woman starts comparing her life to horror films, it might
be time for a break.

 

 

Sheriff
Nate Barnes believes in law and order and carefully building the life
you want. In his spare time, he has been remodeling his house in the
hope that one day it will be filled with the family he makes. But
Nate doesn’t like drama or complications and tends to avoid them at
all costs. And yet, when Miss Abigail Callier, his newest neighbor,
beans him with a nine iron, he can’t help but wonder if she might
just be the complication he’s been searching for all along. It
doesn’t hurt that he’s discovered a journal hidden away by the
previous tenant, and decides to use Old Man Turner’s advice to
romance Abby into his life.

 

 

Abby
never expected her next-door neighbor, the newly dubbed Sheriff Stud
Muffin, to be just the distraction her world needed. The problem is
she doesn’t know whether she should make Echo Springs her home, or
if this town is just a stopover point in her life’s trajectory. And
she doesn’t want to tell Nate that she might not be sticking around
– even though she should, because it’s the right thing to do, the
honest thing – because then all the scintillatingly hot kisses with
the Sheriff will come to an abrupt halt. Did she mention that he’s
a really great kisser?

Hill of Great Darkness is inspired by The Da Vinci Code…

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

The book  Hill of Great Darkness by H. C. Beckerr was actually inspired by, are you ready for this? The Da Vinci Code. Yup, you read that correctly…The Da Vinci Code.

So, Henry…Where were you born?

In the steel mill community of Granite City, Illinois which is just across the river from St. Louis Missouri in the heartland of the greatest nation the world has ever known.

Um…I had nothing to do with the ‘greatest nation’ part. That is because of the greatest military that the world has ever known protecting us all, allowing us all to become whatever our desire may be. And my desire from grade school on was to become a writer. Well…not really to become a writer. Just to be able to write.

Even as a small kiddo, I was writing short stories in school and selling them for the two or three cents that it cost to get an extra chocolate milk at lunch time.

Kinda dating myself here, huh?

 

LOL… Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer? (more…)
