Love ties. Murder binds.
Maggie never felt as though she belonged until Chris Stevens showed her what true happiness meant. Ten years into their marriage, miscarriages and infidelities have scarred them both. Despite their perfect-couple image, Maggie can’t look at Chris with anything but resentment. When a charismatic stranger offers the opportunity for a little harmless flirtation, she jumps into the game.
But charm soon turns to malice, and a deadly split-second decision forces Maggie and Chris onto a dangerous path fraught with secrets, lies, and guilt. With no one else to turn to—no one she dares trust—Maggie will ultimately learn just how binding marital ties can be.
She enjoys traveling and cooking, although with two kids, a day job, and writing, she doesn’t get to do those things as much as she’d like.
Her lifelong dream is to buy an old house with a secret passageway.

1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
Judy Blume’s Freckle Juice. My entire childhood was molded by Judy Blume.
2. What are you reading right now?
Grunge Gods and Graveyards by Kimberly G Giarratano. It’s a YA ghost story set in the 90’s, which is my decade. I was a teenager in the 90’s, with all the Pearl Jam and Nirvana. I’m loving the pop-culture references and remembering what it felt like to be an angsty teen growing up in the grunge years. It’s so much fun!
3. How does your garden grow?
With abandon. My garden is Darwinian. Survival of the fittest. The mint usually wins. It’s like the world’s slowest, most boring race.
4. What is the last thing you Googled?
How to make a newsletter.
5. What makes you cringe?
When people say “Nowadays” with a great big sigh. Like the current times we live in are hopeless and any time before right now was some kind of halcyon era. The world is actually getting better, it’s just that there’s so much more information available, and unfortunately, positivity isn’t as headline grabbing. But global poverty is actually on the decline, as is extreme population growth. There are a higher percentage of educated women than there have ever been in the history of the world, and considering the global population is higher than it’s ever been, that’s saying a lot. Do I think we can all just dust off our hands and say, All done now! Humanity’s fixed! Nah. But the hopeless kind of attitude makes me cringe. I prefer to know we’re better and to think “We’re still not there. Keep moving.”
