Writing was Maggie Petru’s secret solution to boredom and loneliness from her early teens onwards. That love of language pointed her towards Sheridan College’s journalism program, and started her on a lengthy career as an award-winning reporter/photographer for assorted daily and weekly newspapers in the Toronto area.

Years in a one-person bureau saw her covering everything from municipal council meetings, to court cases, school activities, murder investigations, fires, car accidents, natural disasters, visiting prime ministers and all manner of human interest events in two counties.

Now she says she can’t just waste all that experience when it could be turned into so many great yarns.

Maggie’s late book, The Black Brides is yet another exciting novel with overtones of romance, intrigue, murder, and concealed identities.BB-Cover-small

As the high school’s principal Stefan von Rudiger is an important man in Fergus, Ontario in 1961. That doesn’t make him popular. He’s a German emigrant in a WASP town that lost numerous sons in WWII. The black King shepherds he breeds are his only companions. His background is a closed book. Even his employers don’t know the story behind the hook that replaces his right hand. But fellow teacher Luise Schultz knows that Stefan’s wife is entitled to millions for giving him a son and refuses to believe his assertion that he already has a wife.
