What is Elizabeth Maxwell reading?

Featured at Writers Read: Elizabeth Maxwell, author of Happily Ever After.

Her entry begins:
I’m about half way through Doctor Sleep by Stephen King and it’s completely taken over my life. I love the way King can take the perfectly ordinary and make it so creepy.

About Happily Ever After, from the publisher:
Does she want him back between the pages—or in between her sheets?

At forty-six, Sadie Fuller’s life isn’t exactly romantic. She’s an everyday mom in many ways—a little overweight, over-committed and struggling to raise an eleven-year-old girl as a single parent. But Sadie has a secret—while the rest of suburbia sleeps, she makes a living writing erotica under the pseudonym K. T. Briggs. Though her own sex life is nothing worth noting, she’s fabulous at creating steamy fantasies with perfectly waxed, incredibly fit, scantily clad characters.

But everything changes when she encounters a strangely familiar man during a routine visit to Target. Is Sadie losing her mind, or has her latest hunky character wandered out of her manuscript and into reality? As Sadie tries to negotiate this bizarre new world, her eyes begin to open to romantic possibilities in places she never dreamed of looking ... places where “happily ever after” might not be so far-fetched after all.
