Maggie Le Page

Today my guest is Maggie LaPage, author from New Zealand. Her works currently include, “The Heat of the Moment Thing” (which I’m reading now!) and “The Trouble With Dying” (next on my Kindle list!).


Maggie Le Page lives in Christchurch, New Zealand (aka QuakeZone) with her partner, two children, and a snooty cat who thinks they’re all her slaves. Her days are spent running around after kids or doing one of her ‘real’ jobs, so her writing generally happens in the dead of night. (Morning? Ha! She’s a third-generation night owl. Enough said.) Maggie loves chocolate, hates being cold, and is ever fascinated by the possibility of time travel. Obviously, her ideal experience would be to wake up on a tropical island eighty years into the future, with an endless supply of chocolate on hand.

Maggie is a “Reader’s Favorite” with 5 star reviews!



Becky Jordan has had it with relationships. From now on her time and dedication won’t be lavished on her latest Mr Wrong–or, worse, Mr Hell-No!–just the dream travel job which has unexpectedly leapt into her lap. Finally, life is looking great.
Unfortunately, not as great as her sizzling-hot, take-charge new boss. Matt Frobisher is everything she doesn’t want him to be, but if anyone thinks she’ll risk her career on a workplace fling they can think again. No amount of Superman behaviour from him will make her roll over and play Lois.
Her heart, however, doesn’t do logical. In desperation she finds herself a Mr Distraction, one with no strings and plenty of appeal. But Mr Distraction also comes with unforeseen complications. Kryptonite complications, like Becky’s sister. And when she shows up there’s only one sure thing: not even Superman can prevent the Disaster Fest that’s about to blow Becky’s life apart.

When Faith Carson wakes up on a hospital ceiling looking down on her body in a coma, it’s a bad start to the week. A very bad start. She has no idea who she is or how she got there or why, and the biggest mystery of all is why she married the schmuck who wants her ventilator switched off.
As if that’s not enough Faith has a dead gran haunting her, a young daughter missing her, and one devilishly delicious man making her wish she could have a second chance at life. And maybe she can, if she finds a way back into her body and wakes up by Friday. But if she doesn’t, this will be her last bad week–ever.
Nate Sutherland decided long ago he’d settle for friendship if he couldn’t have Faith’s heart. But now, as she nears death, he’s going to have to listen to his feelings in a whole new way–and act. Because if he doesn’t, this week will be the worst damn week of his life. He’ll lose everything he’s ever loved.

The heroine of Maggie’s latest book is in a coma, on the brink of death yet desperate to wake up and live. Pretty serious stuff. And because no insurance policy can guarantee you won’t wind up in a coma some day, Maggie has put together a wee list to help us minimise the risks…

Maggie’s Top Tips for Avoiding Getting Stuck In A Coma

1 Don’t jump in front of moving vehicles. Especially the speedy ones with psychotic ex-boyfriends at the wheel.

2 Don’t leap tall buildings – even to get away from psychotic ex-boyfriends. Our bodies aren’t built like Superman.

3 Don’t dive. Not unless you’ve got really good safety gear and a seriously hot instructor to hold your hand.

4 Don’t eat dodgy stuff. Dodgy stuff causes hives, vomits, and comas.

5 Don’t go without sleep. Sleep deprivation causes bitchiness, altercations with the law, and comas.

6 And for all you mothers out there – don’t go drinking and partying ‘til three in the morning. You were tee-total for nine months, maybe longer. Your body has forgotten everything it learned in its teens. You will kiss your gross boss. You will fall over. And if you don’t end up in a coma, you’ll wish you had
