Interview with Maggie Cole, Author of Depths of Destruction
05 Jan 2021
What can you tell us about your new release, Depths of Destruction?
Depths of Destructions is the jaw dropping first book in the Behind Closed Doors series. When Naomi Salazar, a Belizean investigative reporter, tries to shed light on politicians in her country accepting money from several drug cartels, she’s kidnapped and thrown into a pit with five other women, including her sister, Emilia. A team of former marines are sent to rescue them, but they soon realize their mission isn’t like others. Too many things aren’t adding up. All six women have secrets, reasons they were kidnapped. It becomes clear Naomi’s story is only scratching the surface of the global secret society filled with dark corruption and plans to take over the free world. All six women have their own stories, but are connected in ways they didn’t realize. The men who save them, will risk everything to destroy the evil facing them. But what happens in the jungle, doesn’t always stay there.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I had a dream about my first book, THE RULE, and it just happened.
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
I’m sure I have more but these are standing out! Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews, Forged by Cole Denton, Priest by Sierra Simone, Echo by A. Zavarelli, and The Devil’s Playground Duet by Ashely Jade.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
If it could be anyone dead or alive I would choose V.C. Andrews. Flowers in the Attic was the kickoff to one of the most mind-blowing series I read as a teenager.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
I’m not a plotter, I just write. So I never know how the story will evolve. I have some ideas but until I start writing, it’s unkown. Seeing the final story unfold is something I love.
What is a typical day like for you?
I’m homeschooling my son so it’s a mix of helping him, writing, and doing other things for my business, but writing is an everyday thing.
What scene from Depths of Destruction was your favorite to write?
Oh jeez! There are so many good ones but the cave tubing was super hot. I don’t want to give spoilers either, but what happens to Naomi and how Andre helps her heal was emotional.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
Never stop learning.
