Interview with Maggie Brendan

Maggie Brendan is a CBA bestselling author of both the Heart of the West and The Blue Willow Brides series. Winner of the 2014 Book Buyers Best Award (OCC/RWA) for inspirational fiction and the 2013 Laurel Wreath Award, she was a finalist for the 2013 Published Maggie Award of Excellence and the 2013 Heart of Excellence Readers’ Choice Award. She is married, lives in Georgia, and loves all things Western. She has two grown children and four grandchildren.

A month after sending off her first book query, Maggie Brendan was ready to quit. Darkness loomed as a pain so intense it invaded her and stole her lifelong passion. Her brother, the man who’d been instrumental in helping launch her career had died, and she fell apart.

“I thought, ‘That’s the end of it,’” She said. “I didn’t know if I’d ever be able to move forward. He was like my father, because my dad wasn’t around. He took care of me and my sister.”

But he did much more than that. He also gave Maggie the courage to follow her dreams of becoming a published writer.

As he was.
