If you’re looking for an author to give you a peek behind the curtain, ask Maggie Smith to guest at your next book club. After careers in journalism, psychology, and as the CEO of a national art company, she wrote her debut novel, TRUTH AND OTHER LIES three times over four years while taking a speed course in learning to write. The result is an award-winning story set in Chicago of a fledgling investigative reporter whose loyalties are torn between her famous mentor (a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist) and her mother (a mid-term Congressional candidate). It examines the clash between generations, the power of social media, and the delicate balance between loyalty and truth.
In addition to writing fiction, Maggie hosts the weekly podcast Hear Us Roar (available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google – 150+ episodes) where she interviews debut women’s fiction authors about their novel and their path to publication and she’s a monthly blogger for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers. A board member of the Chicago Writer’s Association, she serves as Managing Editor of their on-line literary publication The Write City Magazine.
She makes her home in Milwaukee WI where she lives with her patient husband Scott and her aging but still adorable sheltie Colt.
