As a writer, Maggie Secara loves to explore the heroic ideal, to find the mythical in the every day, and discover the places where the realms of Faerie intersect the mundane. As a historian, she calls herself a gossip who just can’t stand that someone might have done something 400 years ago without her knowing about it, who else was there, what they had for dinner, and what they were wearing at the time. This interest explains both her love of historical fiction and her long association with "living history".
Maggie’s poetry has appeared in a variety of little magazines on- and off-line since 1995. In 2011, she finally published Molly September, the romantic pirate adventure that has been haunting her since college. Most recently, her interests in history, folklore, and music have combined in Harper Errant, a series of fantasy novels with a historical twist, beginning with The Dragon Ring..
Maggie and her very understanding husband live with their cats in suburban splendor in Los Angeles, California.
