Good morning, everyone. I’m Maggie Blackbird and I write romance starring Canada’s Indigenous People. I grew up at an Ojibway community where my family still lives, and my husband’s family. And I was fortunate enough to spend fifteen years of my life working for an Aboriginal organization in the field of training and employment that took me all over the Treaty area, which encompasses 25 First Nations communities. Through my job, I also had the opportunity to visit many other Indigenous communities.
Being Ojibway, I was naturally drawn to writing romance about Canada’s first people. My first book, Blessed, book one in the Matawapit Family Series, was published by eXtasy Books last summer. The second book, Redeemed, is scheduled for release very very very soon. Book three, Sanctified, is drafted in full, and I’m on round number one of self-edits.
I’ll be posting later with excerpts and information on Blessed, Redeemed, and the Matawapit Family Series.
