Age is no excuse for giving up on life.
Palm Lakes Senior Community in the low desert of Arizona is a golfer’s paradise filled with sunshine, palm trees and retirees who are determined to enjoy their ‘Golden Years.’ But sometimes life throws you a curve ball, and things don’t go exactly as planned.
For Helen, an unexpected death in the family leads to a scary but potentially thrilling new life. Tanya fights to keep herself feeling young and loved, while another resident pursues serial killing as a way to temper his moods and sate his hunger for judgment. Widow Serafina opens her home to her newly divorced and unemployed daughter, and Alexander, a lonely bachelor, struggles to find meaning in his life. Maddie, an elderly married woman, faces declining health with courage and the help of her daughter, Samantha, who also lives in Palm Lakes. Residents Jean and Lydia meet through their mutual interest in New Age pursuits and find they are soul sisters. Life is anything but boring in Palm Lakes, and each day offers a new chance to create a happier, more fulfilled life.

I always wanted to be a novelist. After authoring quite a few nonfiction books and gaining a measure of success, I finally decided to take the plunge and write fiction. As it turned out, probably not by coincidence, the many jobs, relationships, homes and experiences I've had in life became the foundation for both my science fiction series and my series about Palm Lakes, a fictional retirement community in the American SW desert.
About the Autumn In The Desert series: I love to read, and I try to write the type of stories that captivate me. I like believable, interesting characters, captivating plots and endings that are satisfying, not depressing.
It's never too late to create a happy ending in your life, but each person is unique, so there's no sure path to success. In Palm Lakes, you'll meet a serial killer and a psychic, an abused wife and an illegal (under 55 years old) resident. They are looking for love, money, understanding and redemption. Like you and me. I hope you enjoy their stories, and I invite you to visit my website, http://maggiemcphee.com, and let me know how you like them.
