NOTE: Apologies for audio issues on the first recording of this conversation. This version is new and clear.

Maggie Smith lives in Wisconsin and her debut novel, Truth & Other Lies, will be published by Ten16Press in March 2022.

She’s the host of the weekly podcast Hear Us Roar (available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google) where she interviews debut women’s fiction authors about their novel and their path to publication.

Maggie's first-ever short story, "The Devil You Know," appeared in the RMFW’s 2018 anthology False Faces and she’s also a regular monthly blogger for RMFW.

A board member of the Chicago Writer’s Association, she serves as Managing Editor of their on-line literary publication The Write City Magazine.

Recently, she submitted a blog for RMFW which forms the basis of our conversation today: How to Be A Top-Notch Podcast Guest, which forms the basis of this conversation.
