 The launch of Maggie’s first novel A Violent End in 2001 was also the (unexpected) launch of her public speaking career, which now spans local, regional, provincial and national venues. Her audiences have included students from Grade Five to post-secondary levels, Rotary clubs, historical societies, auxiliaries and volunteer associations, Federation of University Women (regional), Probus clubs, libraries, literacy groups, environmental agencies, and the Bloody Words national mystery conference.


Maggie has spent over a decade showcasing the social, cultural and psychological impact of the St. Lawrence Seaway Project on Canadians affected—while engaging discussion on this “lost” history at local, regional, national and academic levels. She has also been busy with presentations on creative writing, public relations, communications, historical preservation, and social media.


Some recent presentations have included:
• “Creating Your Social Media Policy” at the Ontario Hospital Association’s Social Media in Healthcare conference, January 2013.
• “The Damming Silence: Eradication and Reconstruction of Memory, Story and Community in the Seaway Valley” for the Ontario Heritage Conference, May 2014

Maggie is an active and actively engaging public speaker available for public events, workshops and fundraisers.
