Welcome to my official website.  

Come on in and poke around. I hope you'll click on the different pages, meet my characters, and learn more about my books.

And as long as you're here, please subscribe to my mailing list over there on the right. This is the only way you'll hear from me directly. No one else ever has access to my list, so you don't have to worry about privacy violations from me. Nor do you have to worry that I'll clutter up your mailbox with more than two or three letters a year. Here is a copy of my latest letter in case you are interested.

Dear Friends:

Christmas? Hanukkah? Kwanza? Whichever you celebrate (and yes, I know that some of you celebrate all three), my warmest wishes for a wonderful holiday season in this cold dark month.

As you probably know, three of my books have a Christmas setting: Rituals of the Season (Deborah and Dwight scramble to solve a murder while trying to get married), Christmas Mourning (they celebrate their first anniversary), and Corpus Christmas (Lt. Sigrid Harald and her housemate host a tree-trimming party.) The e-book versions are all currently on sale through the end of December. And even though it isn't set at Christmastime, BOOTLEGGER'S DAUGHTER is also on sale through December. Here are some links if you're interested in checking them out for holiday reading:


Barnes & Noble

Next week, my best friend from childhood will be here with her children and their spouses, her grandchildren and theirs, and — most excitingly —  her brand-new great-granddaughter. We'll sing carols and applaud each person willing to perform a "party piece" -- a skit, a poem, a special song. And sometime during the evening we’ll troop out to the kitchen where the younger ones will slip off their shoes and stand up straight to be measured on a wall where the growth marks go back more than 40 years. The new daddy’s mark is there from when he was 3 or 4. Now we get to add his month-old daughter.

Finally, through the years I have written five non-mystery short stories centered around Christmas. I have collected them in a holiday-themed ebook called FIVE CHRISTMAS GIFTS. It is specially priced at just $0.99 for December. It is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble

With warm wishes for a healthy, happy 2018!


"Take Out" is Now Available!


"Margaret Maron is one of those authors whose devoted fans would follow them anywhere." (New York Times)

“A tangle of relationships tests Harald’s abilities to ferret out...the killer’s intended victim—and why. If this is indeed Maron’s final book, as she has announced, she is quitting while still in top form.”  (Publishers Weekly starred review)

"Both mysteries are satisfying, but you read a Maron mystery for the rich back stories of her main characters as much as for the whodunit, and she doesn’t disappoint here." (Raleigh News and Observer)

"'Take Out' shows a master at the top of her game, with a slim, sleek, flavorful police procedural that ought to leave fans hungry for more." (Wilmington StarNews)
