Dating Maggie (My Book Blurb)

Did you enjoy Bridget Jones's Diary or Sex and the City? If so, my book Dating Maggie may be right up your reading alley:

When Maggie’s 25th birthday rolls around she makes herself a promise. She will get a boyfriend and an acting gig by her next birthday. If it doesn’t happen, she will break up with tinsel town for good.

At least she’s got a cool day job as a movie studio tour guide. Her best friend Kate is also pretty great. Skinny botoxed blondes, traffic jams and sunshine have even kind of grown on her. She just yearns for more. 

With renewed determination she decides to try a new dating app. She thinks it will give her plenty of fodder for her dating vlog. Then out of the blue she meets Brad, at a catering job. He’s cute and an actor too. She sees great potential in him.

At the same time, she befriends Cliff, a handsome rancher she met on one of her tours. He’s just in town for a wedding but lives in Maggie’s hometown of Portland. Once he learns about her dating experiences, he decides to keep in touch to ask her for dating advice. 

Finally a promising audition comes her way and things seem to be falling into place. Just when life is starting to feel as warm as the California sun-life throws her some unexpected curveballs. As a result, she’s forced to make some hard choices. There’s a good chance her life may go in a direction she never would have dreamed of.

Writing Inspiration

I just answered this reader question over at Goodreads and thought I would post my answer here as well. If you write, what inspires you? How do you get inspired to write? M.J. GreenwayThere are so many times when I'm inspired by something I've read or watched on TV. For example, I remember reading Gone Girl and yearning to be able to one day write a book that well crafted.
That said, most of the writing time isn't about inspiration, it's just about writing most days and seeing where you get. I write an outline and start with a few characters and conflicts and an idea for an ending. As days pass, more details occur to me and snowball into a full fledged story over time. Walks or bike rides can help too.
For my romantic mysteries, Sarah Starting Over and Greyson Starting Over, I wanted to write about parenting and grief and my friend urged me to write about a disabled character. Because of my childhood love of Murder She Wrote, I also wanted to try my hand and writing a mys…
