Hi, I’m Magnolia “Maggie” Rivers. I was born and raised in Northport, Alabama, was an Air Force nurse in the Viet Nam war and now live in Des Moines, Iowa.
I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I sold my first article, at the ripe old age of 21, to a parents’ magazine. I had just become a new mom myself and didn’t know a thing about parenting. I was hooked when I saw my name in print inside that magazine. The feeling was euphoric. To me, there’s nothing like it.
The thing you really want to know about me is I’m an erotic romance author. I find writing erotic romance easy at times. Seems the words just flow from my brain, out my fingertips and onto my keyboard. Other times, it’s like my arms have been cut off. There’s stuff in my brain but it just can’t find its way down to the keyboard that’s sitting there staring up at me.
I find it rather comical when I go to different events and people ask me what it is I do for a living. I’m not one to camouflage what I do, so I tell them straight out, I write erotic romance novels. Then I’m asked the inevitable question by a male in the group. “Do you need someone to do research with …” My reply for that has become, “Well, actually I do need a dead body for one of my mysteries, are you interested in becoming one?”
I’m one of the writers in the team known as “Writers of the Lake”. With C. Deanne Rowe, we’ve become known to our fans as “The Stiletto Girls” and we write short fun reads all including a pair of stilettos in some way.
Our stories are rated on degree of hotness by chili peppers. One for mild, two is moderate and three is “Whoa, mama!” I’m usually “Whoa, mama!” LOL! Each story is complete on its own, so you can read one in a short time. They’re fun and I think that’s the big reason our fans love them.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my “Help An Old Lady Buy A Shoe” campaign. It’s actually “The Stilettomobile.” It fits perfectly with our stiletto books so do visit campaign headquarters and read all about it.
Over the years, I’ve found my best writing time begins at two o’clock in the morning whether I like it or not. The house is quiet and the people in my head are wide awake. I’m a “pantser”. I simply sit down at my keyboard and write whatever pops into my head and eventually the words “The End” come out.
I love writing the sex scenes. No, I haven’t done everything in those scenes but once people find out that’s what you write they start telling you about some of their escapades. Everything I hear is fair game and could wind up in my books.
So, enough about me and my writing. Go “Help An Old Lady Buy A Shoe!” LOL!
