Karen Maguire

Karen Maguire

Karen Maguire, Ph.D., a former longtime accounting professor in CCU’s E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration, spent more than five years working on a novel. She completed the writing in 2017 but unexpectedly passed away in July 2018 before it was published. As a tribute to her life, Maguire’s family carried the project forward; Flanagan’s Fall was published in May 2021.

Her parents, Bob and Cheryl Maguire, said: “We hope the book brings a warm feeling to your heart, a smile to your face, and some fond memories of knowing Karen.”

Proceeds from the sale of the murder-mystery novel will support the Karen Maguire Memorial Scholarship fund at CCU. Maguire taught at the University from 2004 to 2018.

Filled with unique and interesting characters, Flanagan’s Fall is a sweeping tale of how people, very often with the best of intentions, find themselves colliding at the crossroads of self-respect and vengeance.
