I met her only briefly, at a signing for Hard Boiled Brooklyn edited by Reed Farrel Coleman. I told her how much I enjoyed Mechanical Animals, and she smiled.
In meaning to re-tweet the article linked above, I mistakenly re-tweeted Duane Swierczynski quoting Maggie:

Forgive me, but her loss reminds me what a difference that meeting makes.
