Born in a small town in Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Lake Linden, Margaret Mayotte-Hirn grew up experiencing her life to the fullest. Today, she can look back and remember and be glad she experienced all those things that made her who she is today. She worked full-time in hospitals for 48 years and began writing when she was in her 60’s. She raised three children, got a divorce, remarried, and enjoyed three new children in her life. She also gardened, raised Arabian horses and showed them, played softball since she was 26, and volunteered in her spare time. It didn’t leave much time for serious writing, but the desire was there. Leaving full-time hospital work did give her more time to do more. She volunteered and was selected Volunteer of the Year for 2 different organizations. She traveled states-wide to play softball in tournaments. She was an advocate for senior action and exercise. At age 70, she underwent bilateral knee replacements which slowed her down for a little while. Determined to return to former activity, she dove into therapy. Within 6 months, she regained all her mobility and resumed all her activities. During her sloweddown time, she thought about publishing the 2 books she had written in past years. With that taking place, who knows maybe her next passion will be writing. Inquisitive, daring thoughtful, caring and looks at life in a simple straight-forward way and addresses its challenges. These attributes are refl ected in her writing.
