About meKristie Leigh Maguire was voted Best Up and Coming Author of the Year and her novel Desert Heat was voted Best Romance of the Year by the Affaire de Coeur Magazine. Her novels Cabin Fever and No Lady and Her Tramp were in the Top Ten at the Preditor & Editors Poll.

Kristie and her husband have lived all over the United States and many foreign countries while following his career. While living in Japan, she found it very difficult to find books to read that were written in English. This situation was intolerable as she was an avid reader and had been known to resort to reading cereal boxes if nothing else was available. Have you ever tried to read a cereal box written in Japanese? It was not a pretty picture. She began writing her own books just to have something to read. Since the romance genre was what she loved to read, that is what she decided to write.

When she first began her writing career, she tried to pattern her writing after some of her favorite romance authors. This did not work for her. She soon discovered that she had her own voice and style of writing and it didn't lean toward sweet romances! Her muse insisted that she write hot and steamy romance novels, to take romance beyond the kiss and to tell a good love story which included sex but told sensuously and with emotion. She wanted the characters to be everyday ordinary people and not some impossible hero or heroine who could only be real in the pages of a romance novel.

Although Ms. Maguire is originally from the South and will always remain Southern at heart, she and her husband now divide their time between their homes in a small town in Nevada and St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands . During her expatriate years, she and her husband lived in St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Aruba, Thailand, Japan and three times in Saudi Arabia. During their overseas years they visited St. Marteen, St. John, England, the Netherlands, Bahrain, Cyprus, Korea, Taiwan, and Saipain.

OUR PRAYER OF THANKS
by Carl Sandburg

FOR the gladness here where the sun is shining at
evening on the weeds at the river,
Our prayer of thanks.

For the laughter of children who tumble barefooted and
bareheaded in the summer grass,
Our prayer of thanks.

For the sunset and the stars, the women and the white
arms that hold us,
Our prayer of thanks.

God,
If you are deaf and blind, if this is all lost to you,
God, if the dead in their coffins amid the silver handles
on the edge of town, or the reckless dead of war
days thrown unknown in pits, if these dead are
forever deaf and blind and lost,
Our prayer of thanks.

God,
The game is all your way, the secrets and the signals and
the system; and so for the break of the game and
the first play and the last.
Our prayer of thanks.
