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 doing regular blogs about my life and work, with updates from our dog Bonnie, the very Cornish cockapoo.
West End Gal: my latest blog posts
It’s been just over three months since we got our Motor Home, (or MoHo to use the trendy abbreviation), and yes, still loving the freedom it brings with the ability to set off at a whim. So far we’ve kept within the West Country, exploring other parts of Cornwall, with the occasional foray into Devon. […]
After a six month blog break – well it’s certainly been a busy period – I’m blogging well back! And this time the focus will be a wee bit different. As me and hubby have just acquired a Motor Home, (or MoHo as we like to call it), we’ll be hitting the road and I’ll […]
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 […]
