About Me

Hi! I'm Maggie and I don't like long walks on the beach, but if you happen to have an idyllic lake in the countryside that has a wooden floating dock I can read on, let me know!
Worshipping books since 1989. There's a story floating around of my first bookdragon episode where I absconded with our copies of Dr Seuss and Aladdin when I first figured out how to read at 10 months old and nobody was allowed to touch them or I'd throw the biggest fit a baby could.
  I've been reviewing books on my personal accounts for a while now and then one of my sisters who shall remain nameless thought I should expand my horizons (that heifer's always trying to expand my horizons). So here's a blog. And a back-up blog. And a bookstagram. And a book twitter. And a Facebook. And a Goodreads. And a LibraryThing. And a BookBub. And a bloglovin'. And a Pinterest. And I expanded my horizons, sis. Are you happy now?
  I put the + in LGBT+. I've been out for 5 years now and what a relief. I can make all the gay jokes I want without being afraid of outting myself. Seriously, I think that's the best part. I can make all the 'nothing about me is straight' jokes and not have a massive panic attack that I accidentally outted myself.
  I'm on the autism spectrum (Asperger's Syndrome), I have severe anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder, manic depression, ADHD, and a few health issues that have me in and out of the medical centre. So much fun.
I have 3 large Australian Shepherd-Lab mixes. The oldest is my service dog, Manatee (age 11 - 18 April). Then there's Nikita who's turning 7 in May and Manatee's granddaughter, Skädi, at age 6. They're my babies and my best friends.
  Knitting is right up there with reading. I usually do both at the same time. I knit hats and mittens for NICUs, orphanages, cancer treatment centres, and homeless shelters around the world (Brasil, Vermont, Ukraine, Virginia, and wherever the dart lands on the map).
  I'm an advocate for S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, and Maths) because Earth without art would just be 'eh'.
  I volunteer as an editor on Wattpad and I volunteer as an online counselor for at-risk youth. 
  I'm a polyglot which is a fancy way of saying I speak several languages. I started when I was a kid because I wanted to read a book in its original language and I just kept going.
  I read whatever I get a hankering for. But I won't touch horror stories, like, ever.
  I like to take pictures of everything but myself. I won a few small contests for my photos.
  I'm both a nomadic soul and a homebody. It's complicated.

Last thing, I actually really do love long walks on the beach, especially in the middle of the night, but you have to admit, that was a cute opening line.
