Maggie Fogarty, author
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
To describe last month as a ‘busy’ one is putting it mildly. A new book launch at the start of #Indie Author Week UK, a magazine anniversary feature, swapping interviews with fellow author Jude Lennon, research work and remote meetings – well all I can say is ‘phew’! Now it is time to pause and […]
You are best known for your children’s books but you have also written a short story collection ‘A Slice of Lennon’. How hard was it making the transition from children’s writing to creating stories for adults? My writing group ‘The Revolting Peasants’ gave me an additional challenge one month – I couldn’t write for children. […]
Depending on whether you are an optimist or pessimist, the saying ‘May you live in interesting times’, is a blessing or a curse. Well no-one could describe these lockdown times as anything but ‘interesting’ with commentators struggling to find distinctive ways to sum up this new world – ‘unprecedented’ has taken a pounding, as has […]
To say that Motor Home ownership is a steep learning curve is putting it mildly. Just when you think you are getting to grips with all things MoHo, up pops another problem to get your head around. Still, learning new stuff is good for the brain and there is nothing like being able to set […]
Blame it on the rain. There is no getting away from it, Moho travel and relentless rain do not go together – hence the gap from my last blog post. As soon as we got a break from the rain we were off, this time staying in Cornwall with trips to the fishing villages of […]
Well then – what are the main differences between Motor Home travel in France and the UK? First of all space and lots of it. France is a bigger country and as such the roads are less busy – you can travel miles outside the major towns and cities without seeing too many other vehicles. […]
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 […]
