I used to play a lot of computer games. Ever since Free Cell. I played too much. My dentist noted that my teeth look worn – did I grind them in my sleep? he asked. Uh, well… no.
More than the physical harm, there was the shameful realization of the time wasted.
I considered myself a writer. But I didn’t have much to show for it.
Until retirement and a move to Northern Ontario.
And the publication of a book!
This is the NEW me. Maggie Wilson, Author.
I was born in Kitchener, and lived my working life in several communities in Southern Ontario. I met my husband, a geologist, who introduced me to rocks and minerals and the Town of Cobalt. In 2016 we retired to the historic mining community and could not be happier with the decision.
In 2017, I accepted the position of President of the Cobalt Historical Society. So began my interest in the fascinating history of the area. Besides mineral collecting, I enjoy research and writing, and I look forward to sharing new stories about Cobalt and its mining heritage. The work is like a treasure hunt and the discoveries are just as exciting as stumbling upon a nugget of silver.
