About me . . .

I’m a writer, a teacher, a traveler . . . .  I live in a beautiful woodland setting, surrounded by native oak forests, that inspires me to record haiku snapshots of luna moths and our resident roadrunner, and even an occasional black bear as it hightails it across the top of my road, my mongrel dog barking at its heels as I watch with wonder.

My work as a travel writer has appeared in many publications–from The Dallas Morning News to the Robb Report. (You’ll find a fuller biography at my “About Me” page.  And you can find more examples of my travel writing–as well as excerpts from a travel memoir I’m working on–at my other WordPress site, Travelin’ On.)

What more than that do you need to know?  Only that I started this blog with an eye toward collaboration.  Got a haiku?  Send it my way. . . .  I’m all about new visions & voices.

Drop me a line from time to time.  And thank you for visiting this site.

Best, Maggie

    Hi Margaret,

    Lovely website. I had the pleasure of meeting your sister, Sara and she told me about your website. I haven’t had a chance to visit until today. Very impressive. Keep up the good work.
    Just a few words to say hello.
    I live in Hot Springs. We have had 14 annual haiku conferences at the Hot Springs airport – one is scheduled for the first weekend in November.
    I enjoy haiku and meeting people who enjoy haiku too.


  2. I love your work, Margaret!

    • Thank you, Charlotte! I just subscribed to your website, and I’m glad to have found it. I’ll look forward to reading more of your tanka and other writing as well.
      Best, Margaret

    I am so happy to have found your blog by way of the NaHaiWriMo facebook page. I really enjoy your poems and have just subscribed to your website.

    • Thank you so much, Jenny. I just signed up to follow your amazing website as well. I see that you write tanka! That is my passion. I’m happy to learn of your work and hope to get to know you better in the coming months.

      All best, Margaret

    Yes, I also love tanka–it seems to come easier to me than haiku, although I’m certainly enjoying the NaHaiWriMo challenge!

    I enjoy your blog and visit it from time to time. I have put it on my list of blogs. Please come and visit my blog sometime: www-whitepetals.blogspot.com

    This may be a repeat of a previous reply. When I replied before I received no acknowledgement that it was recorded.
