Maggie McGuinness

Maggie McGuinness has always been fascinated by people and the ways they relate to each other. Now, after years of observing and experiencing life in all its messy and chaotic glory – it’s time to write about it!

Maggie lives in Melbourne, Australia, and is a single mum to a son and daughter who are now – all of a sudden, it seems – young adults. She writes and edits in the business world for a living, but longs to be able to sit at home all day in PJs, drinking tea and writing fiction. Maggie’s hobbies are stalking ex-boyfriends on Facebook, walking Missy the Wonder Dog and perfecting her own extreme sport of combining Zumba and cooking.

Her first novel, Planet Single, was fuelled by her own experiences of online dating, which didn’t provide a life partner but proved a brilliant source of material for fiction writing. Still happily single, she’s planning on moving to the coast in a couple of years, becoming a part-time hermit and adopting a tribe of elderly rescue dogs.

Novels number two and three are well underway, and that dream of being a full-time fiction writer is inching closer. In preparation, Maggie is expanding her flannel-wear and teapot collection and has become addicted to trawling dog-rescue websites.

Planet Single – Chick Lit, Romance, Comedy Fiction, Commercial Fiction

Love, lust, deceit, bad kissers . . . and that was all on Tuesday. Welcome to life on Planet Single!

Being dumped back into single life makes Katerina feel like she’s on a different planet. Things have certainly changed. You can shop online for men now, with a bewildering array of choice, but there doesn’t seem to be a refund policy. Was looking for love always this complicated?

Join Maggie McGuinness in a celebration of love, laughter, starting over – and how friendship can be the sweetest revenge.

(Some sex scenes – not explicit – and lots of ‘colourful’ language.)
