Maggie is an idealistic nerd with a romantic streak that surpasses any scientific explanation. Writing stories and making music has been a part of her DNA as long as she can remember. As a child she wanted to learn EVERYTHING, and as fast as possible. She wanted to know how a car engine worked and what made people tick. She organized children to re-enact her favorite movies in the backyard and wrote stories and plays about worlds she'd never seen.
Her love of life-long learning has garnered degrees in psychology, counseling, computer science, and culminated in an Ed.D. in Education. Though not seeking any more degrees, she loves learning more about physics and cosmology and it's relationship to culture and faith. Before retirement, Maggie had a career in academia, as well as opportunities to consult in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and the Middle East.
Though her past career provided many exciting and rewarding times, she is now doing what she'd dreamed of doing since the 4th grade-writing stories that entertain, share her love of learning, and that remake the world into what she wants it to be. With more than 20 titles now published, she is well on her way to reaching that dream. All of Maggie's fiction is character driven and reinforces that life is about making heroic choices one messy moment at a time.
Maggie and her husband have settled in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, in the United States, where she now writes full-time. Her fiction spans romance, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy titles. Her current non-fiction work focuses on helping career authors succeed in the business and technical side of writing and publishing.
