About Maggie


I've always harboured a secret desire to be a spy, or a super-skilled martial artist, or an actress — something fearless and unexpected. Writing has been the perfect compromise. I can be any of those things and not risk death or stage fright . . . or death by stage fright. When not writing, I'm a freelance fiction editor, and I live in Canada just outside of Toronto with my husband and two children.

I am represented by superstar literary agent Rena Rossner of The Deborah Harris Agency, Ltd. She had me at "hello." My debut mystery novel, STICKS AND BONES, is currently on submission. Here's its logline:

Lucky Blackstock, struggling actress but above-average dog walker, has inherited a police dog with a nose for crime. When Brock digs up a human bone, Lucky can’t seem to stop being a suspect. Unfortunately, her cool name did not come with luck included. Can Lucky’s acting skills unearth the real killer and clear her name?
