Hi, I’m Maggie Fogarty, pleased to meet you!
Thanks for stopping by at my website. You can find out more about me and my books here. I’ll be blogging regularly about life in west Cornwall, with updates from our dog Bonnie, the very Cornish cockapoo.
West End Gal: my latest blog posts
Sometimes in life things happen out of the blue – when you’re not looking, yet somehow the timing feels right. With lots of talk about getting more women represented on company Boards of Directors – the latest figure is still a pretty poor 25.5% of FTSE 350 companies – the chance to join the Board […]
It’s been a while since I last posted a blog and that is because the past six weeks have been a sad and traumatic time for our family. After a long hard battle with Vascular Dementia, and more recently, the devastating effects of a stroke, my mum Rita passed away on October 7th. Her quality […]
If we thought last year was busy in west Cornwall, well that was nothing compared to the sizzling summer of 2018. Not only record temperatures but soaring visitor numbers too – our town of Marazion has seen thousands of people arrive to enjoy the beach, watersports, St Michael’s Mount, and some great eateries. Yes the […]
There has been a lot going on recently, so just easing back into the writing business with Bonnie the ‘dog blogger’ taking a back seat again. Not her favourite spot! A few weeks ago I got a request to do an interview with a journalism student as part of a final university degree assignment. It’s […]
Hiya folks, Bonnie is back in pole position as the doggy blogger! There’s been lots going on here and I’ve just celebrated my – ahem – 4th birthday in style. Home made cake and something called Prosecco for the two legged lot and some yummy mutt treats for little ol’ me. (Hmm, perhaps I should […]
When asked a few months ago if I’d give a talk to a local group about writing and working in the world of television, of course I said yes. At the time February seemed a long way off and then – after the rainiest winter anyone can remember – the date for the talk loomed […]
A few words from me this time before handing back over to Bonnie the dog blogger… We recently had a note slipped through our letter box saying that we’d been short listed for a ‘Marazion In Bloom’ award. There had been no entry made from us, so after making some inquiries we found out that […]
Hi from Bonnie the very Cornish cockapoo… This time around I’m going to dedicate the blog to my late friend and regular minder, Leda. I first met the lovely Leda in July 2015, when my rents were looking for somewhere for me to stay while they were away. (I know – how can they bear […]
Hiya folks, Another post from Bonnie the very Cornish cockapoo… Back from my big trip to London and didn’t I cope well? Let’s face it, the city is a bit different from my usual Cornish seaside patch. Hell, I even put up with the long drive down – isn’t the traffic around Knightsbridge just hideous […]
Hiya folks, Bonnie the very Cornish cockapoo is back again and what a crazy few weeks it has been! Lots of people dropping by on their Cornish holidays, garden party planning, little ol’ me featured on the front cover of rent Maggie’s new box set of books. If this wasn’t enough, I’ve been invited to […]
