I was born in Southern Ontario, and lived my working life in several communities. 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.
A year later, 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.
During my working life, I considered myself a writer, but I didn’t have much to show for it. But now I am delighted to declare, this is the NEW me. Maggie Wilson, Author.
