About

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."

Maggie is a pen name and my actual nickname, but it had nothing to do with my actual name! There is a reason for the nickname but you would have to really convince me to get me to tell.

My username comes from the words of wisdom by the 19th century lunatic Mr William Herondale who is a character in the 'Infernal Devices' trilogy by Cassandra Clare.  

I'm a twin. I'm generally regarded as the evil twin, but I'm really not. I just like doing my own thing.

I'm dyslexic.  

I critique. I don't claim to be an expert but years of being an extremely picky reader has given me insight into what makes a good story. If you want feedback just PM me - any requests on my message board will be ignored/ deleted/ responded to rudely (depends on my mood). The stories must have decent grammar and have been proof-read. I'm not saying it has to be perfect but it is unfair for you to ask me to read something you cannot be bothered to read yourself. Also, nothing with stupid titles.
I reserve the right to decline the request. 


I make all my covers myself but the images that I use to make them belong to their respective owners and no copyright infringement was intended.

It's finished, unless you're talking about the third part? I haven't started writing that. At the moment it's only an abstract idea in my head and I have no idea if I can even pull it off. I'm working on something else, so even if I write it, it's not going to be before summer. Sorry.
