About the Author

Margaret Westlie is a native of Halifax with close family ties to Prince Edward Island, where her family immigrated from the Isle of Skye, Scotland, in 1803. She is a graduate of the Victoria General Hospital School of Nursing and of Dalhousie University in Halifax. She discovered her talent for writing almost by accident, while completing a degree in church music, and immediately switched her degree plan to English, receiving a Master's Degree in English with a Professional Writing Emphasis in Prose and Poetry from the University of Missouri. She played violin with the Philarmonia of Kansas City and has sung with a number of choral groups, including the Confederation Centre Singers and Akkord in Charlottetown. She is also an accomplished pencil portraitist. She makes her home in beautiful Prince Edward Island, Canada, where her novels are set.

Most good authors can write a good story. Let's face it, none of us like to read 'so much' that we read for the sake of reading. Margaret knows her characters. It is like you can be with them, and feel what they feel when you read 'Margaret's story telling'. Mattie is the story of a young women's life, at a different time than now. So, I guess it is a period piece. It is real, and ultimately uplifting in it's honesty.
