Who I am Maggie Blackbird, an Ojibway from Northwestern Ontario, who now resides in the country with my husband and our fur babies—two beautiful Alaskan Malamutes. I write contemporary and historical romance starring Canada’s Indigenous People for eXtasy Books and Devine Destinies.
Interests besides writing: Golf. I love playing and I love watching. I picked up the game way back in 1997. The first shot I managed to hit hooked me from the start. Although I don’t play nine holes every evening, and then 36 holes on Saturday and another 36 on Sunday (yes, I was a total junkie), I try to get out to the links whenever I can. Naturally, I had to include golf in my Matawapit Family Series, that Sanctified is book three of. Haha.
Network or support system: My husband and Mals, of course. And I can’t forget my family.
Desk description: There isn’t much here LOL. It’s an old desk because I’m waiting on the husband to finally finish my home office, but at this rate, I could be waiting for years haha. Here is a pic of my desk!
Outrageous talent or something fun like that: I’m super-organized and operate by a very strict schedule. Yes, I am pathetic that way. I apply this to everything in my life.
Window What’s outside yours. The west side of the lawn with gorgeous trees.
I love this face
Sanctified – Book Three in the Matawapit Family Series
by Maggie Blackbird
In the midst of a battle for leadership at their Ojibway community, two enemies of opposing families fall in love…
A Peek at Sanctified
Recovering addict Raven Kabatay will do anything to win the respect and trust of her older siblings and mother after falling deep into drug addiction that brought shame and anger to her family. Not only does she have the opportunity to redeem herself by becoming her brother’s campaign manager for chief—if he wins, she’ll have the reserve’s backing to purchase the gold-mine diner where she works, finally making something of herself. But falling in love with the family’s sworn enemy—the deacon’s eldest son, Jude—will not just betray the Kabatay clan. It could destroy everything Raven believes in and has worked so hard for.

A Peek Inside
Frost nipped at Raven’s exposed skin, the kind of frost that burned. At least there wasn’t a wind chill, or minus thirty-seven would become minus forty-seven. She scurried from her sister’s truck she’d parked, dashed up the shoveled walkway, and into the school.
