Maggie Secara

Maggie Secara is a technical writer by trade, which just proves that you can, too, make a living with a Masters in English. A not-quite-native of California, she has traveled in Great Britain and Ireland, but not nearly as many places as she’d like to. Maggie started writing poetry at the tender age of 8, but began her story-telling adventures sometime in junior high school with a Robin Hood saga she promises never to reveal. Her long interest in history and many years of involvement in the Renaissance Pleasure Faire and Society for Creative Anachronism have all contributed to her writing, in more ways than one! Initially a handbook for members of her guild at the Faire, A Compendium of Common Knowledge 1558-1603 was established as a website in 1998, and finally released in book form in 2008. More recently, her love of history and heroics have culminated in a series of fantasy novels, currently looking for a home. She and JimDear, her very understanding husband, live with their cats in cozy suburban splendor in North Hollywood, California.
