Maggie Giles is a positive, outgoing person who enjoys creating new connections and experiencing new opportunities. She is a Canadian author whose debut novel was published April 2022.

When backpacking through Europe, she developed an interest in writing and began writing historical fictions from the Tudor era in England, as with most first novels, it was a passion project but ultimately a dud. Since then her writing interests span larger. She dabbled in women's fiction, romance, science fiction, and fantasy before ulitmately settling on suspense and thriller novels.

Maggie is a former participant of Scribophile, an online writing community for serious writers, as well as a member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association since 2014 where she volunteered as their Social Media Coordinator for nine years before passing on the responsibility.

She’s slightly addicted to social media.

If she’s not writing, Maggie is usually bogged down with some other creative project. She has a love for knitting and sewing as well as cooking up a storm. If you venture outside, you’ll find her swimming in Georgian Bay or hiking with her mastiff-mix, Jolene. When it snows, she's almost always on the ski hill. If she had the money, she’d spend the rest of her life travelling the world, staying in AirBnBs and writing about her adventures (always with a twist!).

She also has an irrational obsession with Shawn Spencer.
