From a young age, I had a vivid imagination, and a fascination with words. I was an avid reader, and kept countless diaries. I'd create fantastical stories about things that had happened in my day, to which my mother would ask, "Maggie, is this a story?" 

Into adolescence and adulthood I developed my writing to be less fantastical, and instead full of truths—though sometimes the effervescent whimsy of my youth still pokes through. 

I'm a firm believer in having many passions, and aim to live a life full of adventure, and creativity.  My blog name, 'follow your bliss' also doubles as a personal mantra. It's a reminder to stay true to what drives me—wherever it may take me.
