Author Biography

I write sassy romance novels containing a slice of adventure and enough steamy sex to drive those who dare read them racing for a cold shower. Nothing makes me happier than taking readers into another world, a world full of romance and excitement, mystery and adventure, humor and fun.

Born in Scotland, I emigrated to Canada at the tender age of seven. Years later as a University of Toronto graduate, I convinced the federal government to hire a Fine Arts specialist as a computer programmer. After three years of bits, bytes, and dumps (probably not what you're thinking), I graduated again, this time to full-time homemaker and mom, raising two wonderful sons. Plunging back into the business world, my second husband and I started a management consulting company. This marriage survived because my husband and I pledged never to work on the same project again. Ever.

After a century in the consulting world, I grew weary of wearing snappy power suits, squeezing into panty hose, and fighting rush hour traffic. I made a life-changing decision. I wanted to write books. Not dry, boring, technical treatises, but fresh, funny romantic suspense novels. How hard could it be? Thousands of authors did it every year.

Always an over-achiever, I quit my day job, attended a one-week seminar on writing a novel, read a couple of how-to books, joined the Ottawa chapter of RWA, and plunged right in. Learning can be a humbling experience, but I persevered. I slaved. I revised. I learned. After twenty

Fur Ball Fever by Maureen Fisher is a funny and romantic mystery story. The heroine, Grace Donnelly is a quirky young woman who knows no boundaries once she gets involved -- and involved she gets in all kinds of sticky situations! Nick Jackson is the romantic interest who is responsible for getting Gracie out of all kinds of tight spots. Granddaddy Hiram, Sam, and Auntie Beth each add comedy and substance to the story.

Grace runs a dog spa business and when the prized puppy she is watching gets kidnapped all the fun begins. She must get the dog back before Saturday’s Fur Ball Extravaganza. She turns to Nick, a security specialist for help. Nick is already watching the suspected dognappers because they are con-artist who scammed Granddaddy Hiram. Grace and Nick have to face dead bodies found floating at the beach, Kinki, a club in Atlantic City, New Jersey, being held captive on a boat, and falling in love.

I really enjoyed Fur Ball Fever. Maureen Fisher wrote a book with a great plot, strong characters, a sense of humor and a good mystery. Fur Ball Fever is a perfect blend of good reading. I was emotionally attached to Grace and Nick. I laughed a lot at pot-smoking Auntie Beth, was tickled by Granddaddy Hiram and really didn’t like the bad guys. Fur Ball Fever is warm and fuzzy, mean and tough, funny and I was hooked from the first word. I was sad when it was over; I didn’t want it to end. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Great book to take along on your next vacation, read it on the plane, at the beach, just about anywhere.
