A.J. (Aimee Jean) Maguire is a mountain-climbing, martial arts loving, published author with one child and one cat and a borderline unhealthy fixation with the written word. Currently she has six books out for sale. The first two books are Sedition and Saboteur, which are a part of a series and were published through Wings ePress. Witch-Born and it’s sequel Dead Magic are published by Double Dragon Publishing. Her very first science fiction, Deviation, hit virtual shelves in August 2014.
January 13, 2015 Ms. Maguire began her self-publishing journey with her second science fiction, Tapped.
A consumer of stories, A.J. Maguire thoroughly believes that stories are the bedrock of humanity, and that the answer to every question in life can be found in the tales that we tell. She also believes that spiders are the spawn of Satan and that her cat might just be the reincarnation of Dionysus.
If, of course, a Greek god were capable of being reincarnated.
Maguire enjoys books with strong characters who challenge her as a person and manage to whisk her off with adventure at the same time. This means that she reads nearly any genre and any author but her favorites include Diana Gabaldon, James Rollins, Ken Follett, Jennifer Crusie, and Brandon Sanderson.
Her own writing runs the gamut between science fiction, fantasy, and (soon-to-be) historical fiction. She even has a semi-horror/ghost story in the works that she intends to release as a serialized novel during the summer of 2014. Maguire focuses on complex female protagonists who are capable of laughter even amid tragedy, or sometimes in spite of tragedy.
Maguire is passionate about her craft and constantly working to improve. She’ll probably keep telling stories long into her old age (which is still several decades off) and believes that being an author is the single greatest, most wonderful gift she has been given — apart from her son. She looks forward to every story and hopes to release many more novels in the years to come.
