About the Author
McGarvey was a theatre major in college and pursued an acting career for a few years. Eventually, she moved into advertising sales in the magazine publishing business where she sold print and digital advertising and managed sales teams for companies like Conde Nast and WebMD. Ten years ago, she left media to become an executive recruiter for large and small internet companies. No matter how she earned a living, she always wrote...for her, for her friends and family. Two years ago, she left recruiting to pursue a full-time career as a writer. She's written three novels thus far and working simultaneously on the fourth and fifth. She's obsessed with writing, sometimes waking in the middle of the night to put pen to paper when she gets an idea. Since she usually write mystery/thrillers, her process is to know the beginning and the end before she starts and then fill in the middle as she go. If she does her prep right and develops her characters fully, the characters kind of write themselves.
