Maggie L. Wood was born and grew up on Prince Edward Island, Canada’s smallest
province. She goes by the name Maggie (short for Margaret) now, but Margaret is
actually her middle name, and the L. part of her name (the super secret part) is
actually her real first name. So, of course, her initials are not M.L. but L.M., just like
another very famous L.M. writer from Prince Edward Island. Maggie also has red hair
(well, sort of red-ish now with gray highlights) and spent many summers camping and
swimming at Cavendish, just like one of her very favorite red-headed book heroines
(*hint* fave red-headed book heroine’s initials start with A).
